Hi,
I bought a set of Night Stalker Roo lights late last year. They are polycarbonate like the Lighforces, in fact many accuse them of being a copy, but they are 10mm larger in diameter and I think the fittings are slightly different.

The difference is the Night Stalkers are $230 including the heavy duty loom kit. The kit includes all the bits and pieces such as switches and fuses, nothing else to buy.

The best price I could get the Lightforce 170's for was $320, plus you needed to buy their wiring kit at $45. Total $365.

As much I like to support Aussie companies, the price of the Lightforce 170's ruled them out.

With regard to how the Night Stalker Roo Lights perform, they certainly light up the distant signs etc. They do what I want, and I guess that is all that matters.

A real test would be to put them side to side with a set of Lightforces and see how they compare, but I have not done that.

Just as a side note, the Night Stalker Roo Lights come with a clear lens cover, but unlike the Lightforces you cannot buy any additional "lenses" to make them into broad or pencil beams. You however can focus them by turning the body on the globe holder and you can get pencil or broad beam that way.

Between the good lights, there probably is not that much difference in performance, and it will come down to personal preference. A bit like the Nissan / Toyota debates.

Re: Driving Lights opinions


I just installed a pair of Narva 175's, and I'm pretty happy with them. The spot and spread beam combo provides a lot more light than the highbeam headlights. I haven't adjusted them yet, but they sure look good. They're bigger than the tiny factory driving lights, and don't stick out as far from the nudge bar as the lightforce would have.

I have also just installed a set of Narva Ultima 175's. I chose a Pencil Beam set - Not Combo as the High Beam on the T31 TI spreads quite well. Very impressed with them in bith the looks dept and also the functionality.

Re: Driving Lights opinions


Hi,

I've been lurking around the driving light posts for quite a while now and am going to get an early xmas pressy.

I like the look of the Hella Rallye 1000s.

All I have found so far are the HELLA RALLYE 1000 FF SERIES.
This seems to be the only option here in Aus. I Just wasn't sure about the FF (free form) part of the name.

Other lights I'm looking at are the Narva 175s

Cheers

Re:


Personally I wouldn't touch any of the Hella lights apart from the Rallye 4000 series or other Hella lights that use the same mounting base and wouldn't ever use Narva even if they were free (or until they lift their game).

I'd be looking at a decent pair of HID driving lights if I was fitting them now.

Re:


I had the Hella Rallye 1000 on my T30 and I now moved them to the T31. I was quite happy with their performance off-road at night and there is nothing wrong with their mounting base (as far I could tell). Considering you can now find them selling brand new on eBay for around $230.00/set which is a real bargain indeed.

Not sure I can justify spending a fortune on HID spotties unless you live and drive in the outback everyday where you can legally use spotties.

Re:


I'm a fan of the lightforce lights - Been using the Blitz 240's on both the old and new X-Trail (same set moved over). My Boss wasn't happy with his old Narva or Hella lights (can't remember which) and he changed over to the Lightforce 240's and was happy with them.

One particular thing I like with the Lightforce is that they can be adjusted - not only can you rotate them to change the beam, but the different covers and change the output of light. I've found the way I prefer it is to have one light with a clear cover and another with the combo cover - gives some 'spill' light out the sides which is good for seeing roos and other widelife right on the side of the road at close distances, and I can still see a good distance up the road as well.
