Welcome! Nice to have you here with us.
I'm not a very technical person but I would hazard
a guess and would say somewhere suitable at the front.
More capable people will come along eventually and
probably say that I'm wrong!

You can buy some moulded ones that fit in the front bumper from eBay.

Front seems good to me, too. :thumbsup:

Or, of course, you could put them on the roof. Confusedillyme:

A friend of mine fitted them to his Honda CRV and had to put them at a specific place as the law stated in Bulgaria. I'm not sure if its the same requirement in the UK.

Pretty sure DoT has guidelines about specifications and minimum / maximum height etc.
Check out Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989 for info. Confusedtudy:

Depends if the OP means J Arthur lights (eg, aftermarket foglights/chavlights) or long range, "proper" driving lights (eg, Super Oscars).

If the former, you can cobble up something in the fake blanking parts of the front bar - make some back-mounting brackets out of aluminium sheet and pop rivet them on with charcoal coloured rivets.

If the latter, I'd look for a compact design and modify the grille to have them near the headlight inner corners.
