Narva re­cently launched its 215 LED driv­ing lights with a fo­cus on in­dus­try and trans­port

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.

LIGHT­ING UP

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
