Re: Head lights and Fog Lights Modifications & Upgrades


How is the colour of the yellow foglight Tom ?
Is it a deep yellow or more of a dull white ?

How is the foglight pattern ?
Is it like a true flat beam foglight or more of a round beam ?

The real fog light light is yellow as it should be.

Re: Head lights and Fog Lights Modifications & Upgrades


I'm looking to add some LED lights to the fog light compartment of my T30 X trail which did not originally have fog lights. I've had a look through this thread but a few of the links are dead and some of the images don't work so it's hard to find what I'm after.

There's some cheap lights on Aliexpress that look like they'd fit and I'd be happy to give them a try. I'd like to know a bit more about the process of installing them before I proceed though.

Firstly, do Xtrails that don't have fog lights as standard have the necessary wiring to fir them? or would I have to wire them up myself?

Secondly, I understand the factory lights from nissan come with the stalk kit to add the switch to the light stalk. The cheap kits don't seem to have them, are they available for purchase seperately or would I have to connect them up another way?

I don't mind piggy backing them to the Parker's as I envision running the lights all the time and always drive with my headlights on.

Apologies if this has already been covered

Re:


The wiring is already there to connect to, so all you need to do is add a relay in the fog light position in the fuse box under the bonnet and either put a separate switch or grab a replacement steering stalk that has the fog light switch from the wreckers and it'll be a direct swap and will give the factory look and feel.

Re: Re:


Thanks Jalalski!

It seems as though the stalks have a plug and play like compatibility as per this video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51bm7_2-47c

If this is the case, would I just need to get the lights, a relay and the stalk and simply plug everything in?

While we're here - if I were to get a Ti model wiper stalk with the extra wiper speed settings could I simply swap that with my current one for the extra functionality? I had a Ti once and miss the variable wiper speeds - 3 speeds on the ST model is sometimes not enough

Re:


Yes for the fog lights stalk but not sure about the wiper one. I think it may work but I can't remember if I changed it when I had a T30 ST years ago. I "think" I did.

Re: Head lights and Fog Lights Modifications & Upgrades


Just updated the headlights on the second car to LED.

I can totally recommend the Hikari LED lamps I got from Amazon Australia.
They use Osram LED chips and are 9600 Lumens/set (4800/lamp).
Easily more than twice as bright as a standard halogem globe and completely keep the same beam pattern and light cutoff.
These were the HB4 for lowbeam and HB3 for highbeam.

Seriously considering getting a set of H4 globes for the T30 Xtrail to replace my older LED lamps I've had for quite a few years.

Re: Head lights and Fog Lights Modifications & Upgrades


Hello,
My 2012 x-trail has failed on low beam projectors, tried new h11 bulbs +150% light from osram with no results. Same very poor light on low beam. Later discovered that mirrors behind low beam projectors lost mirror finish due to heat. After that i decided to make a new step: Upgrade to bi-led projectors. Price for a led projector pair was 100$ on Aliexpress. I bought a defective headlamp from scrap to test fit on it and project started. Remove lens from lamp, dismantle everything and start to mock an adapter. The led driver was glued inside of the headlamp. The result was extraordinary and the headlight look from factory with no other wires than stock ones.

Bi-led projectors

Finally it was a full day work(removing front bumper, headlights, dismantling headlights, assembly of led projector, closing the headlight, install on the car, seting aim again, bumper on) but it worth!
