Adjustment for driving abroad is done using STAR.

really? On W211's etc there is just a lever... Cant believe you would have to visit a dealer to change this... how are you supposed to do it, find a dealer near calais?!

IS there anything in your manual?

Apologies Jay, you are correct. The 215 has a lever in the light unit by the main bulb. The 216 needs STAR.

Reading the WIS doc on my iPhone in strong sunlight, easy mistake!!

BTW some 211 with ILS need STAR but most models with xenons have the lever.

yes you have to take the cover off and it can be tricky to find... I think its red, may be easier to look with a mirror.

Sorry for the earlier misdirection... Now back at my pc. See attached picture for location of the lever (7) inside the light unit.

Located said switch. It moves up and down okay,spring like,but does not stay in either position. Reverts back to neutral and it's grey ??
