      DIY- Auxillary driving light instalation to my Nissan X Trail

      Hi Gearhead members,
      This is my first DIY installation done for Nissan X Trail .
      When I brought my car last year in august 2012, I thought headlight comes with dual system i.e projector xenon for lower beam and halogen bulb with traditional reflector system light for high beam. But after delivery I came to know that it has got dual projector setup i.e with high and low beam in same unit.

      Above headlight has projector and near to it on right side round one light is parking/side marker lights. Which during delivery of car I thought as high beam light. During
      driving few thousands k.m. on highway ,I feel adding these light .After doing research how to fix these Hella spot light, I finalize to directly mount it on plastic bumper.
      I some how didn't like to fix bull bar to car. Also after market options are not OE look.
      Now problem comes how to make these bumper sturdy enough and spot light should not vibrate .
      For this I brought 1.5" x 5 mm thick aluminum patti from my construction site.

      After opening front grill vertical support on which Horn are mounted has on lower side few holes were available .I used these holes to fix horizontal aluminum strip.
      Using four strips made frame below plastic bumper which support Hella spot lights.

      Now time to add H3 ,100 watt bulbs and two separate Hella Relay .For this I used small strip inside engine compartment next to battery. I used two separate 4MM wire from relay to headlight and 6MM wire from battery positive to relay with 30 AMP built in fuse.

      O.E. fog lamp in Nissan X Trail comes with 35 W bulb. Why does they give such low Wattage output bulb when others are giving Min 55W bulb in fog lamp?
      The light out put of this fog lamp is very less.
      I am going to find out what type of bulb its having?
      Thanks
