Hi,

Is there a way to change the headlight beam for driving in europe rather than having to stick those nasty headlight stickers on?

thanks
Mark

Yes, flick the switch over on the back of the headlight

You have a handbook?

Hi Mark

Take the light out unscrew the x4/5 screws out the back cover.
Push the silver latch down with a long screw driver for Europe driving.
The best way is to You Tube it. Thumb

An Illuminati member will be along soon to counsel you putting too many miles on a 993 and you might want to re-think it Rolling Eyes

Hi Zingary, no one will talk me out of using the 993 and putting miles on it, its too much fun!
I’m taking it down to Venice next week.
I’ll post some photos of the trip on my return.

I'm impressed with your travel plans and modes of transport.

I'm leaving on 7 Sept for Budapest, coming back in couple of weeks via Venice and then Stuttgart.

Christian Sanger says my 993 is good to go - however, CLassicline Insurance's breakdown cover doesn't extend to Hungary or Slovenia. I have therefore chickened out and will take my Mini Cooper S which is still under manufacturers warranty.

PS, when I took my 993 to Dinslaken in 2018 I didn't bother with changing the headlights. Didn't run into any issues and I did some driving after dark.

Sounds like a great road trip, I'm sure the Mini is a superb car, but don't do a Zingari!

If you have a Nationwide Flex Plus account (£13 per month) you may be covered. If not, apply for one quickly!

Actually, it was a comment by Zingari that put me on to the Mini Cooper S. I ended up with a used Mini with the 210hp chip and a bluetooth controlled noisy exhaust "for track days only".

I bank with Lloyds and they do a similar deal on their premium account. However, couldn't find the list of countries covered. Will recheck.

If Hungary is covered I'll take the 993, fix the headlights and get this thread back on topic.
