With factory tinted rear windows and the very poor standard central reverse light I can't see ****** all when reversing in the dark. Has anyone found an led bulb that works well as a replacement for the standard bulb?

Are there any neat solutions for adding other light units? I've seen that there's a replacement led light cluster, but that's only for the right side (fog light side for left hand drive t31's) For 2008-2013 Nissan X-Trail Clear Lens LED Rear Bumper Fog Light Tail Stop Lamp | eBay

I bought these WOWLED Offroad 4 Inch Quad Row... https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07K1V5T5L?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share and wired one of them directly to the reverse lights. Mounted on the towbar bracket with a small metal plate. It lights up everything behind me like I’m turning the sun on when I pop the car in to reverse.
I only wired one up with the opinion that it would probably burn out quick because it was cheap, 7 months on - still going strong 💪

Any pics of it fitted to your Xtrail would be appreciated? Didn't think of mounting anything on the towbar directly! I'd very much like an as discreet solution as possible :)

Sure thing!

the tow ball probably shields the light a bit but doesn’t cast any notable shaddow. On the plus side, it also provides a great deal of protection for the light too 💪👍🏻

Excellent solution! One which I'll be copying :D Bought the lights already and I've found a bracket that someone makes to fit between the towball (same location as the trailer electrics plug in to) :)

I'll update once I've fitted everything :cool:

Compared to the T30, the T31 has a very good reversing light. There are many led bulbs for tge job, maybe from Osram?
