Quick update.
Finally got around to fitting the fog lights today. The live to each light can be found in the centre brown multi plug pins 13 and 24.

Hello! I'm looking to add some extra beams. 2 or 3 LED beams or a bar under the license plate to boost the headlights for the winter. As I live in the forest and most driving is out on the countryside. My C3 is a 2014 eHdi. I see there's a free slot on the battery to connect the lights via a fuse and relay. Now for controlling the relay I need to either jump the high beam cable or find a already fitted aux connector. Back of the right side headlight (driver side for UK cars)there's two cables ending in a connecting box. Could this be something to be used? I haven't checked it yet. Just want to see how (or if) any of you have solved it? Also I hope this won't wreak havoc with the cars on board computer?

You could just run a relay off the main beam and run power to your new lights from the battery via a fuse.

This way you won't need to interface with the C3 computer and much less likely to cause any damage to sensitive electricals.

Your extra lights will come on with the main beam, which is the only time you can use any powerful driving lights.
