Hi, I have an LC5 2004. Just been driving through north Scotland for a week and standard headlights with Osram nightbreaker plus lamps  fitted were not cutting the mustard when it comes to putting light up the road to see the deer who had strayed. Thinking of fitting spotlights, any ideas on good quality and good output as I don't want to fit cheap to a quality motor.
Many thanks
Dan

KC Daylighter I heard were the best, but very pricey.
Me & my mates are poor usually, and fitted Lucas Road Runner with a H3 55W bulb to a Land Rover 90; if aimed correctly, they are still very bright.
You can get just a Hella 3003 bulb housing these days and fit an H3 LED CREE Q5 bulb; reputed to be good for shining 800 meteres or so, low heat output & last forever. The 3003 also contains a small sidelight bulb, but they are a sizeable spotlight.

Some folks fit the smaller eyeball style lights also.

Its down to how you want them to look, and whether its function or aesthetics you are after most.

Hope this helps...
