Im looking for a set of driving lights at the moment, have seen the IPF 930's and the Lightforce 170's. Does anyone have any opinions on these or any other lights around this sizing. Also should i be getting driving lights or spots.

Hi Mattie , would go and price a set of Hella Rally 1000 and put the money you save inta a headlight upgrade as well , these lights perform very well and don,t cost the earth

The LF 170s are breakable despite the hype. One 28 parrot and the 170 snapped at the base. Ring Mr LF, no you can't just buy a base leg, that'll be a whole new light. :~((( Thank you VERY much.

Ive had a Hella 181 die the same way as that.

Strength - I've seen Mark Cheeseman (Cheezy 383 Chev Mav on 42's) roll completely over onto the roof bar with his HID and 170's on, rolled back onto the wheels and drive off, not one was broken, bent out of alignment yes, but not broken.

Yours must have just been bad luck.

Rolling on them once would be luck, twice, wouldnt be.

YMMV

I installed Narva 175s on my landcruiser and they now live on my hilux. They are a a great set of driving lights. $129. After 25000km travelling, the only thing to damage one was a stupid truck backing into me in Western Sydney. Narva also sell parts for their driving lights so if something breaks you don't need to buy a whole new light.
Enjoy...Michael

I'll second that. Big mothers tho. - Ajustable beam and lenses make them very flexible.

LMAO won the 4wd mthly test, was it followed by a 2 page ad like last time?

Next mth.. like last time the other pathetic mag will have something else win, like last time LF won in 4wdm, Narva won in Overratedlander...

YMMV

PS, 240's wont fit all cars, too much blockage of radiator.

Truckster - Agree they are big and won't fit all applications - Also agree that "winning" doesn't say a lot about a product. But ads or no ads they are a very good light and deserve consideration. IMHO

I have lightforcs 170 on the cherokee and Hella 4000s on the troopy, the Hellas win by miles, they have a much better quality of light, ie, greater definition and a far superior spread to the lightforce which are very bright but not nearly as refined, and the spread is a bit sad, even with the combo cover!!

I know that this is an apples to oranges comparison, but I wish that I had stuck with hella for the jeep!

Fitted some 'Nane' driving lights a few weeks ago. Good price and very good 'white' light. Come in round and rectangular, mine are the round 200mm dia. Also have the clear protective covers as an extra.
Cheers
