GT headlamps

Hello ppl

Had my GT in for its first MOT and it failed with the head lights set up for europe driving although its a RHD, can anyone tell me if there are differant headlamp housings or can the headlights be adjusted to suit the UK? All the mechanic could offer was 'stick on's' to convert it for UK driving.

Some headlights have shutters activated by a lever under the bonnet which changes them from left to right hand drive.

This happened on a car I had once - it was a UK car but on first MOT turned out it had LHD headlights. Bought the car 2nd hand, but to my knowledge it had never been damaged or converted from RHD. This was 15 years ago before imports or even grey imports became common. Still baffles me.
