G'day All
I was just wondering if the lights on the 80 can be both connected so that you would have 2 low beam and 2 high beam lights either side.I dont know whether this is legal and how easy it would be to rig up.and i wondered why toyota didn't look at this from the start.I am not if this is legal or not.Your thoughts are appreciated.Please excuse the ignorance.

I suspect that your high beam assembly is a different size/ shape. Outer headlight assembly would take a H4 55/60W and inner a H1 55W or something like that, so with modification’s yes, don’t think it would be worth it but.

Those 240EGT’s would overpower it anyway

Why bother. All you gain is a little more low beam light which I am sure would be illegal. Don't think you need anymore firepower on High beam as I notice you have the IPF upgrade plus the 240's

4 low beam ligts on at the same time is illegal.

you may only have a maxium of 2 dipped and a total of 6 high beam ligts on at any time.

Yeah easy enough to wire up, but you will need to change the two inner lights to Hi beam Lo Beam units. My advice is don't bother, because you'll find that every tool in a 80 or 100 series assumes that you have your Hi beams on and will flash you., which is why I swapped mine back to factory.

We are about to see a crack down on use of additional lights as all these boy racers drive around the city with thier fog lights on.

Sounds a good idea but low beam in the city is the problem. Looks like you have the light thing covered.

At $150 and 3 demerits its the same penalty having an extra spottie going on a bush road as driving straight through a red traffic light in the middle of a city.
The RAC has been onto trying to make the d!cks that make the laws aware there is a difference between a spottie and a red light, but I dont know if they can tell the difference yet.
