Carrying bulbs in France when our car has Xenons.

We're off to France in a few weeks & we are required to carry a kit of replacement bulbs with us. This is all well & good except our Mk5 Golf has Xenon headlights - so how do we accommodate the need for replacement bulbs here to stay legal?

I think France might have dropped this pointless requirement. In most cases it is actually impossible for a driver to replace a headlight bulb. But to "comply" most drivers simply carried any old set of bulbs.
