Default LED lights under side mirrors

Hello, I have always wanted to install LED lights under the side mirrors to help with night time parking especially when the passenger side of the car needed to be close to kerb. Both the NX side mirrors already have little light globes (red arrow in the pic). Said globes are dim and inadequate for my purposes. So I was thinking of the following:

1. To replace the existing globe with something brighter (LED) and install a by-pass switch so I can manually switch it on during parking.

2. To install a separate LED light and place it under both side mirrors next to the existing light globes (marked red X in the pic).

Would like to hear your thoughts about which is easier or if someone has already done that.

If you’ve considered a roof platform then worklights mounted up there would be very effective.

Have you had a look inside the mirror to check for real estate if you were to install a flush mount lamp?
