Re: Driving Lights opinions


 Rehashing an old topic here, but I am looking for a new set of driving lights to replace the Hella 181's. I much prefer the look of the round lights and I have the full support of the boss on this one (finally).

 Due to the shallow gap between the driving light attachment on the nudgebar and the front grill, I am interested to know what type of driving lights people have installed. I know a lot of you have them, so come on...brag a little.

 Rich, no need replying to this one mate. Your Lightforces scare me !!!

Re: Driving Lights opinions


Brett,

If you can fit these on your nudge bar, then I wouldn’t go past them at all emoticon

Hella Rallye 4000 FF Chrome

I wanted a set of these when I was shopping around for light, but they wouldn't fit my nudge, so I had to settle for the Rallye 1000's and they're excellent too.

Hey, did you say you got approval from the "boss" on this one???

Mate, quick go and buy any lights you can find before she stumbles across Anita's post and changes her mind. hahahaha

Jalal,
 YES, I already found Anitas post and almost fainted LOL.

 As for the Hella 4000, I have a set on my Pajero and swear by them. I actually measured them up, but they are too deep for the exee.

Brett, I'm running IP 800SC lights which I've had for about 9 years on 4 different 4WD's. Very good light & they fill the factory nudge bar nicely.

Re: Driving Lights opinions


Hi all,

This is a timely thread for me.
I am about to pick up an EBC Nudgebar and want to get a set of lights to go on them.
I notice the Sutherland 4WD place has discounts on some Lightforce lights. Does anyone have them, or know how deep they are?

Also as a complete light novice, what should I be getting? One spread, one pencil beam? What kinda wattage.
I am not looking to spend heaps either.

Also, do I just rock up and buy them and get them fitted, or should I try and organise a better looking switch for inside the cabin etc. Having never bought lights I am not sure whether they just come with whats needed or not.

Thanks
Brendon

Re: Driving Lights opinions


Brett,

I have the Lightforce 170's and would suit your nudge in size perfectly. If you wanted the 240's like Rich, you'd have to get a measure up as they might not fit your nudge, legally, and you should be leading by example. emoticon

Lightforce lights are great for an Australian made plastic light. Their only failure is the lack of security and can be stolen very easily even with locking nuts on the brackets, as the lens itself just screws off. emoticon

Hella have been around for a long time so you can't really go wrong with this brand.

IFP lights, which are distributed by ARB appear to be the best lights on the market (maybe??), however their specs are very limited, and you just can’t make a valid comparison with other brands.

If I were in the market again today for driving lights, I would be approaching ARB to perform a demo of these compared to other brands.

Re: Driving Lights opinions


I haven't got any driving lights on my exy because it doesn't really get driven at night. But I have a pencil / spread combo on my turbo diesel triton 4x4 ute, and they work fantastic. I can see tree's about 1km away! Problem being, they won't fit on an x-trail, but Narva work good for me so I would recommend having a look at there web-site for a smaller light. Here is the link to the Narva's I've got.

Re: Driving Lights opinions


I know that this is probably the wrong thread to write this in but I feel the need to be heard (spent lunch with someone who talked too much!!)

I reckon the stock driving lights on my STR are pretty damn good for night driving and ligths up the road ahead for a good few hundred metres, hence, not really feeling the need for more driving lights.

There aren't many STR's around at all....
