If you're heading abroad this summer, you'll need to bend your beams to stay legal in Europe.

Save yourself some cash and don't buy your headlamp converters from Halfords, who rip you off at £9.99 for a pack, pick some up for a fraction of the price on Ebay:

Ebay Beam Benders

Good call. What other bits are required for Euro driving?

GB sticker
Hi vis jacket(s)
Spare bulbs
Warning triangle
Breathalysers?

Is there a particular spare bulb kit we can get for our kombis?  I need to get a new fire extinghuiser & saw a package online that had extinghuiser, 1st aid & bulb kit amongst other bits but have no idea if bulb kit is suitable.

The main headlamp bulb is a H4(472) so if you buy a kit that includes that, then you'll be heading in the right direction.

Just Kampers have the bulb kits for £8.00 and I brought my headlight converters from their at the same time but they can be found cheaper online if you shop around...

Anything else we may not have thought of for our continental trip??, I've just ordered a continental hook up connector should we need one...

Can anyone advise how the converters fit? For some reason the Brazi Bay is not on a standard vehicle fitting list (!) and the slope on the lens seems to go the opposite way to the norm... Cheers

There is a picture on the Just Kamper's website. That's how I worked it out.

That's quite different from the Just Kampers website. I trust yours though TimV. How easy is it to reposition?

I found a section of black masking tape to be both effective and cheaper (think Daz pointed me in that direction).
