Re: Hyper Roof Rails with Lights


Very nice and very unique and that has to be one of the reasons there on your Exy. Just a qustion on the Hyper roof rails can you still fit you cargo attachment to them as though they were roof racks ? I know nothing about the Hyper rails and ther carrying capabilities

Re: Hyper Roof Rails with Lights


Thanks Dave,

Well, I can't say they're totally unique, cause the the ST-R that came to Australia had the hyper roof rails with lights too, but everytime I saw one on the street I always asked myself "Why couldn't Nissan colour-code them to match the exy?" cause with their gold colour they stand-out heaps and look like a tower that was put there as an after-thought, rather than part of the design feature of the exy.

I have decided to colour-code mine and that was the best decision I made, cause they now look part of the car and add to its distinctive feature. It also makes the exy look a lot higher (although it's not in terms of ground clearance)

As for carrying stuff, I can do whatever I used to do with the old roof rails and there are cross bars that can bitted to these roof rails which I have talked about in THIS page of this thread.

The metal brackets under these roof rails are for the same load rating like the ones I had there previously.

I'll be getting the cross bars from the dealer after the holidays.

Jalal,

 The hyper rails look excellent. Definitely your best cosmetic modification to date.

 When we were originally looking at buying the exy, the wife liked the look of the ST-R with the hyper-rails, but the grey colour looked crap.

Re: Hyper Roof Rails with Lights


Our STR has the operation of the roof lights set up this way (from the factory):
* Low beam on, roof lights will not work.
* High beam on, press a switch and roof lights come on.
* Turn off high beam, roof lights go off.

Each time you turn on high beam, the roof light switch has to be pressed again. Apparently this is to comply with ADRs or something...

I must say that we thought the roof lights would be faily cosmetic only and not very good on the road, however they are actually quite usefull and compliment a normal set of driving lights extremely well.

Re: Hyper Roof Rails with Lights


Thank you very much for this info Shawn.

I was wondering how they operate.

I think I will go against the factory set-up and have them operate with the switch they came with parker lights, that way they will still be legal cause they operate on a separate switch I reckon.

I want to use them with the fog lights in rainy/fog conditions (without high beam)

Do they annoy oncoming drivers in any way like the high beam and what is the globe rating?

P.S. I was just thinking yesterday that the hyper roof rails would look fantastic if colour coded in Blue, Burgundy and Silver to match the xtrails and would probably look like a million bucks (even more than the black) emoticon

OK Guys,

The hyper lights have been wired-up today and then there was light indeed!!

I have decided to wire them-up to work with the parkers, but at the same time I can disable them with the switch they came with.

Here are the pics of them in action.

Jalal - what type/wattage are the globes. It would be nice to have heavy gauge wire and 130w lights up there. Sure would clear the roads, thinking a plane was about to land on top of them. emoticon

Brett,

They're just normal 55Watt type globes, that is why they came out a bit yellowish in the photos compared to the bright IPF Fatboys headlights. I don't think I will put anything brighter at the top, otherwise you guys in blue will be having problems seeing my number plate with a camera with all these lights on emoticon

Why not throw in a set of Phillips Vision Plus or Chrystal Vision H3's (or H11's) to give the all around white HID look.

Good suggestion Brett. I will look at this in due course. They're H11's.
