With halogen lights you need the old sticky-tape masks.
While the word adaptive has mistakenly been substituted for automatic earlier in this thread, it does seem that situation re driving in Europe is the same whether the car has xenon or halogens - no action required (except for early F10 cars).
So no sticky-tape masks required after all for halogen headlights.
