I can see you're a big fan of the spotlights but on the xj40 :? , unless of course you have need of extra lighting where you drive , both cars green too , coincidence ?

Below bumper spot lights were available as a factory/ dealer option on battery under bonnet models. There's a dedicated plug on the loom (big yellow), and fixing points in the bumper.

Aren't those fog lamps?

The XJ40 headlamps are usually really good and don't need assistance.

Well, OK, it depends where you make the distinction between "spot lights" and "fog lights".
