Default Headlights for right and left drive

Hello again.
The mechanism of level into the headlights Doesn't work so I'm evaluating to buy some use headlights from ebay or so. My doubt is if the headlights for the English market are different from those for the European market because I heard that the direction of the headlight could be different.
If anyone knows about that please let me know also the part code
Regards
Adriano

Why not just buy the repair kits avail on ebay and replace the broken pieces instead. Since even buying used is going to leave you in the same broken situation

there are plenty of headlight videos Im sure on youtube. And the kits are like $30 and If you mess up what have you lost? But successful you have saved $100's

Adriano,

The UK headlamps are different. The dipped beam pattern is the opposite to European (and US). Because we drive on the left, our headlamps dip to the left. The difference is in the pattern on the glass.
