High Beam


The family and I have recently returned home from a trip to Queensland from Victoria. Had a great trip and the first long one in our new (to us) X-Trail. I still don't like the driver's seat as I find it very uncomfortable. I want to purchase some top of the range sheep skin covers but can't get past 'She who must be obeyed'. I think they will make all the difference. My concern is the high beam. We live in country Victoria and I find the high beam on the x-trail quite poor. On the trip home from up north I began to worry if my car is faulty. I normally drive an old ED Ford and it's high beam has it all over the X-trail on a dark country road. If I hold the switch half way both the high and low beam come on and its adequate. With just the high beam on I feel vulnerable. Yes, the globes are both on. I don't really want to go down the fog lamp path as I feel they spoil the look of the car. In my opinion the high beam on any new car should be sufficient. I'd appreciate your views.

Re: High Beam


Yes, the high beam on the exy using factory globes is very poor indeed.

We have discussed upgrade globe packages in THIS thread and you will find the answers there along with photos.

I am using IPF Fatboys globes and they're awesome both in high and low beam.

Bumper fog lights will not help illuminate the road, they're more suitable for fog conditions.

But you should consider adding a pair of spotties if you're driving on country roads regularly.

Re: High Beam


Another option is to install a Heavy Duty Wiring Loom as discussed in this thread to minimise the voltage drop to the globes due to the thin factory wiring harness wires.

Re: High Beam


I support the 'heavy gauge driving light loom' option. Worked for me. If you do a lot of country driving, why not upgrade your h4 bulbs to a higher wattage.
