Hi,
I need to know what is the difference between left hand drive and right hand drive headlights?
Could I install LHD headlights in a RHD smart 451 car ?
Because I ordered by mistake a pair of Brabus exclusiv headlights but for Left Hand Drive instead of Right Hand Drive and I am in Mexico, here is RHD like USA, I saw images of the both headlights of the back part and only see little difference in the location of the connector(s), but also don't know if maybe I could need coding or something else that maybe couldn´t install them in my Smart 451.
Only the problem will be the direction of the light in the night ?

I am sad because they cost a lot of money and I couldn't cancel them in the MB shop because they are already confirmed for shipping.

What could be the big problem to install a LHD headlights in a RHD car ?, I don´t have them yet, but want to know if I could install them in my car.

In the images the one with the orange wall is the Brabus headlight for LHD.

The problem that you are going to have installing RHD headlamps assemblies on a LHD car is that the lowbeams will illuminate the lane to your left instead of lighting up the area to your right. I think they also might be missing the sidemarker reflector as well, but not sure about this.
