G'day all

I am looking for a nudge bar for our i30 purely for driving lights.

I have been looking for a nudge bar for the last 2 hours. I can find plenty of i35 nudge bars, but not i30's.

Can someone please point me in the right directions.

I took your advice and got the answer I needed on the i30 forum.

I did not need a nudge bar. Instead I am going to get a spot light bar which fits behind the number plate.


Easy as to install and only $39.

I am looking at that mount for my wife's car. When installed and working could you please report back whether they vibrate or not?

Cheers
Nick

Yeah they do vibrate. I have one of those bars on my i30 with two Lightforce HID Blitz 240's mounted on it. If you buy a long drill bit and a couple of long 10mm cup head bolts you can drill through the hollow steel front bumper using the light bar as a template. Then bolt it up with some 3 or 4mm square plates under the nuts so you don't crush the hollow bumper when you tighten the nuts up and this will prevent 90% of the vibration. You will need about 10mm packing between the plastic bumper cover and the light bar to make up for a bit of crush on the bumper cover. Then just refit the rego plate with some longer self tappers. The plastic 240's still vibrate a little due to their light weight and being top heavy and the poor mounting design but not enough to be a major issue. I imagine with a couple of decent lights like Rallye 4000's the vibration would be negligible. Don't worry about the holes on the bumper because when you sell the i30 just remove the lights and light bar and refit the rego plate to cover up all the evidence. Only trouble with small cars the likes of an i30 is that you cannot get decent driving lights high enough to take full advantage of their lighting capabilities.

G'day blown4by

Thanks for a very comprehensive reply.

I will use your advise when I install my wifes light bar.

Initially I was going to put the rectangular IPF 800's on the bar, but It does not appear to have the room to install them.

Am I wrong or should I stay with an led light bar?
