Lightbulb 428i Off-road lights

Hello guys and girls.
Ive got myself a 428i Coupe -14 and is very happy about it.
One thing though, as I live far north in Sweden there is a lots and lots of miles driving in pitch black with lots of animals running around.

Thinking of installing some kind of LED-bar either on the roof or in the front, looking for some inspiration on mounting it since there are no roof rails and I do not want to cut to mutch in the grille.

Any suggestions?
thanks

Low mounted, high powered fog lights?

Best place to mount might be the front bumper. Otherwise I think you'd have to install roof rails as well.

Ultimately fog lights are what you want, definitely what is actually known as "off-road lights", don't want to be throwing on your 4 series what would be meant to be for a Jeep

High-powered fog-lights will not do the thing due to beam-pattern.
Maybe change the fog-housing to some kind of spot xenon to get the distance.

haha, No i do not want some Bosch BigKnicks in the front, just some way to add some more light to the road in a slim, discreet way.

Maybe something like the Hella DE Xenon could work

retrofitting a projector would be a great thing to do if you want to go really discreet and as close to OEM as possible, but of course that's much more involved than just buying a kit, but something i'd consider!
