Driving my Toyota Corolla in France

Recommended Posts

I have driven to France for 25 years and have always used  Eurolites Beam Deflectors .

I will be driving my first Toyota ( Corolla Hybrid Icon Tech )to France this summer. 

Toyota have told me verbally that because of the new beam technology on their  LED lights ,  a flat  beam is created and dazzle is not a problem , therefore deflectors are not required .

Will this explanation be accepted by the French Gendarmes should they have occasion to stop me ?

I would welcome feed back from forum members ,

I have been to France, Germany and Italy in three different cars, one head halogen lights and needed the deflectors. The other two, Auris MK2 and Rav4 MK5, have led lights and have the flattish beam. Have never been flashed by oncoming cars or stopped by police. To be honest, police in Europe are more interested in catching British drivers speeding, especially in Calais on the way home.
