[quote=alshamsi_m;47420]In the night drives there is one NEW factor - the shadow :patapon: :

1. Out off the lights range ( You can't see in the dark ).:whut:
2. Partially under the light ( Shadows might look bigger ). :you're kidding, rig
3. Covered with Wrong lights or Wrong angle ( Flat Vision with no Shadows at all ):whut:
4. With the right lights and angle ( It is so much fun specially avoiding the heat):thumbsup:[/quote]

Thanks Al Shamsi for re-emphasizing the need for correct and sufficient lights for night off-roading. Infact I went through a lot of earlier threads on the forum to understand the correct set-up. I intend to go for three HID lights on the front bumber of my pathfinder, all of them 55w each. The two lights on the sides shall be 'Flood' type and one in the centre shall be 'Spot'. I shall try to buy and get these installed on Friday. I hope the combination meets the requirements of night driving and also assume that I shall get the desired lights. As always please do me know if you see anything not-right in this combination.

Cheers!

@Alok708

If you are planning to do what you mentioned above. Fix all HID flood for front and forget about the spot on the front.

You are going to thank me later on :secret laugh:

Dear Al Shamsi,

Always grateful for your valuable advice. As suggested I shall fix 2 or 3 (if possible) HID 55w Flood lights only in the front.

Cheers!
