Hello again, I'd emailed Citroen UK who took the time to phone me back and explained no templates were available for the berlingo. They explained where to put them which is exactly where 'knobblywobbly' showed in his pictures! They also explained that cars manufactured after 2006 don't require any filters as the as all european cars have headlights with a flat beam pattern.

I have found both my previous '05 'lingo & my current '09 'lingo do not need deflectors on the continent as apparantly confirmed by Citroen UK. The proof of pudding...I have driven in the dark for miles on busy narrow unlit French 'N' roads & never been flashed once. On my current car the beams are flat with 2 small points of light pointing to left, these don't seem to bother oncoming drivers when driving on the right.
Also if you stick anything on the modern plastic lenses & drive for long periods with lights on, hot spots will form that may cause hairline cracks to lens around deflector. There have been endless arguments on ukcampsite about this, I say modern clear headlights don't need deflectors. Some might say French cops will nick you if you ain't got deflectors or tape on the lights but the law is that you must not dazzle oncoming drivers not that you must have deflectors.
