Xplod lights on the XR8

Finally found some small lights at a reasonable cost (under $70 NZ)... reckon they look pretty cool! Would have mounted them futher backwards but there was nothing to attach them to, would have had to made up a bracket. They're acually mounted sideways, stuck and screwed on. They come on with low beam, and turn off with park lights or high beam.

yeah nice looking but how legal are those babies? You should have put a seperate switch in rather then the low beam/highbeam gizmo.

Fine - I believe in some parts of the world you aren't allowed more than 4 lights illuminated on the front, dunno about NZ. Being wired the way it is there can never be more than the 4 anyway, and why go to the trouble of putting a crappy looking switch into a 70 thousand dollar car when you're only ever going to have them on when using low beam?
