For anyone not afraid to drop around $1000 on a set of quality spotlights you can't go past Narva's 215 LED's. They are ridiculously good!! I had Lightforce 240 HID's prior to that and I didn't think LED's would outperform HID's but boy was I wrong. The light is whiter, brighter, wider, longer, higher and instant. They turn night into day. The build quality is 2nd to none. I got mine for $440 each plus around $140 for the wiring harness. I can't recommend them highly enough.

You can also buy them as a kit from TJM (labelled as TJM Narva) that includes 2 lights, wiring harness and different coloured rings for $1100.

The helpful pics of the driver side access using the bonnet release cable hole was in my opinion impossible for my big fat hands. I tried......

I spent a couple of hours attempting to source the drivers side headlight high beam plug to no avail and much cursing. This was my biggest stumbling block and I think I will now get it done at my local auto electrician.
I used a coat hanger to feed the wire and poke through that grommit.

I used a coat hanger to feed the wires. Here is another clearer photo.

You could also run it up on the front inner fender and through the gromit in the door jem into the kick panel

I'm sure they're good, but that is a lot of coin for lights IMO and light performance is somewhat subjective too.

"A lot of coin" is somewhat subjective too. I do a LOT of country highway driving so light performance is critical to me. The standard high beam on my 2012 GC is woeful at best. When travelling these roads full of roos with my family, $1000 is cheap insurance!
