Hi, you shouldnt have any problems fitting driving lights as long as they are wired up correctly. I usually wire them this way: 30 to + on battery + via 25a in line fuse , 87 to + on driving lamps, 85 to high beam wire from globe connector and 86 to driving light switch, other side of switch to earth. I have wired several this way and have not had any come back. Andrew.
