Recently I found myself contemplating a couple of boxes sitting on my desk … inside them were a pair of new Narva Ultima 215 LED driving lights. It was clear that I was going to need to hook them up to something to try them out.
I considered mounting them to the front of a colleague’s Hyundai Getz, but I reckoned that adding nearly six kilos of driving lights to the front bumper may have had a detrimental effect on driving dynamics. Would’ve looked cool, though!
I don’t have a spare prime mover lying around, but I happen to have an ex-army Land Rover Perentie which turned out to be the best option for seeing just how much these babies light up the night. Given the appalling performance of the stock headlights on the Landy, the old girl needs all the help it can get in the lighting department.
Narva is touting these lights as being just the ticket for fourby and transport applications. Funnily enough, fourby owners everywhere these days seem pretty keen to cover the front of their vehicles with multiple lights and light
