Welcome joe, Do you have a pic of your car? Depends on what you want to acheive, if you want to make it look like John Coopers early car then 4 but if you just want spots then 2 is probably ample.

None, they cost a fortune, and you'll get more to the gallon without them

Are you seriously suggesting your mpg will go down with spot lamps fitted??!!

And the wipacs are about 80, so a good value mod imo!

4, no doubt. You see loads of cars with 2 but far fewer with 4, and jamski is right the wipac ones are 40 a pair. Bargain

Yup, the brackets attach to the grill not the bonnet then the lights are bolted to the brackets. I don't remember any drilling being involved when mine were done...

So have a lot of people, myself included. With spots, it's mostly about the look.

I have 2, but tempted to get another 2 at some point.
