    Auxiliary/ running lights

    Folks - I have a 2020 non TE version here in Aus and have decided to fit aux/running lights after just doing a ~3000km round trip and being caught out in some crappy lighting conditions.

    Any suggestions - (web- links) greatly received???

    I did not like the factory fit BMW drls/spotlights as they looked too big and  like they were fitted as an afterthought. I fitted a set of Denalis drls.

    They are expensive but top quality and compact but very powerful and fit neatly under the front fairing

    I do like them...very unobtrusive indeed.

    Jakebake - appreciate the response mate the Denalis certainly look the DB’s and in keeping with the sporty look of the bike  - will see how much they’re gonna cost me here in Aus.
    Smithy =all agreed.

    I wouldn’t buy them from Denali Uk, their service is poor at best .

    Dirtybearded they are $555 from Whitesmoto.com.au in Melbourne. They are the only distributor for Denali in Australia.
