Re: 2011 Nissan Xtrail Ti Head Lamp High Beam H1 LED Conversions Bazza,
I personally would install driving lights if you want better light on the open road or dirt track.
Failing this option a descent set of HID will do the trick.
Seeing as you already have the legal setup for HID lights the conversion takes approx 1hr to complete.
As a rule of thumb the guys selling HID conversion kits online for less than $60/pair I would stay away from.
On my previous car ((Holden Captiva LX) and I still don't know why I bought it...) I was able to convert the Low and high beams for $200.
The conversion it self took 4 hours as the lights are held in place by 3 screws and a clip (this was the only positive) the rest is a long story...
I am currently investigating the all in one HID bulbs for my exy. Still waiting on a response from the seller to see if they will fit behind the plastic housing.
Will let you know how I go.

Re: Hi Bazza,
Given the very limited use of full beam, I left the halogen bulbs in my Ti and can't really see the benefit of changing them to LEDs, as you want to achieve good road illumination when you're using hi-beam and the LED bulbs will be bright but they won't reach as far as the standard bulbs do.
Like Tom said, invest in a good set of LED or HID spotties instead.
