Switching xenon headlights from rhd to lhd

I have a uk spec rhd 535d delivered May2011 with xenon headligths as part of visibility pack.

The car does not appear to have a manual switch to change the headlights over to lhd. This is backed up in the manual that comfirms that the headlights automatically adjust. [there was apprarently a change made eariler in 2011 to remove the manual switch]

The problem is that the car needs to be temporarily registered in Denmark (Nato export), and therefore needs to pass a Danish MOT.

The car currently fails the headlight testing.

At the moment my only option seems to be a complete replacement of both headlight units at 1000+ each.

I would really appreciate any advice or suggestions.
