Re: Driving Lights opinions


Greetings,

This afternoon I installed a genuine Nissan driving light harness.

For the wires into the cabin, Nissan come up with an absolutely brilliant idea, feed it through the bonnet release grommet.....NOT

What a pain the bum. Means you need to take off the flare, inner guard, take out all these scrivits and posi drive screws. Then bend back the inner guard and try and open the grommet with some circlip pliers..

Works, but not a lot of fun mind you.

And for those playing at home, im pretty sure its been mentioned before, the blanks for the switches push in, NOT out !!

Cheers

TJ

Re: Driving Lights opinions


I installed my driving lights (Narva Ultima 175s) weekend before last. Agree about the access point through the firewall behind the wheel arch. Major pain.

I broke quite a few clips in the process especially the screw grommets holding in the wheel arch. They cost $5 each to replace! There were 5 of this plus a few others.

Glad I don't have to go through that process again!

I've got the same lights and also did the HID upgrade on them...



The thing to remember about HID upgrades for driving lights or headlights is that they lose quite a bit of light output the more you switch them off/on while warm.
Hot restrike is the quickest killer of HID lamps, so if you frequently have to dip your driving lights when travelling because of oncoming traffic, it is best to keep the halogens.
Some HID lamps also take a while to get to full brightness which can be an annoying delay.



I've got HIDs and a 20" LED bar on my Exy.

Works a treat as both are independent but obviously still connected via the relay to the high beams. I live 1000km inland so when I'm driving at night there isn't much oncoming traffic.

I really like the white 6000K colour of both additional lights. I've got halogens on my hilux and they are perfectly fine too. I do feel like it is easier to pick out the surroundings while travelling with the whiter lights though.

For me, worst case is I switch the LED on/off through traffic and save the HIDs when I know it's open highway. Tis a good way to remind inconsiderate people who don't drop their high beams too when travelling in my opposite direction :-)

I would def consider the same set up should I buy another vehicle :-)

Cheers,

Ben

I installed it this way too for my LED bar when a mate helped me do that install.

Rather than the dodgy f#ckers at the place which I spent over $3,000 in accessories who simply punched a hole in my firewall with a screwdriver!!! They didn't even pretend to armour it either!!!

So I think it's just simply a game of patients cuz I broke 2 OD those irreplaceable white clips too :-P

Cheers,

Ben

Re:


Easiest way to get into the cabins i think is to use the hole behind the glovebox, you dont have to undo any of theose silly clips your guys are saying about breaking etc.

The glovebox is pretty simple to remove only took me about 5mins.
