Mini One D Grill Spotlights

Hi All,
I am new to the forums and have reccently bought a Mini One D, which looks lovely with british racing green, bold white stripes and lots of exterior chrome. I would like to fit two chrome spotlights on the grill inline with the bold stripes. However since it is a diesel the battery is in the boot. Excuse me, because im new to this world. But would it still be possible to fit the spotlights desite this? I havent been able to find too much information on this subject online.

Many Thanks!

No, the battery location is not relevant. Even if you thought of wiring directly from there, it is not street legal. In the UK, where you are, the spotlights have to be connected to operate only in conjunction with the headlamp main beam. This is fully described in BMW's instructions on fitting the accessory spot lamp kit into the existing vehicle wiring, and you will find plenty of details by searching this forum, which you obviously haven't done yet. I'll warn you that it's not that easy, but it has to be right or you will get an MoT failure.

Regulations may be different in other territories.
