I'm looking to mount an LED Bar to the roof of my S60, to use with the high beams. Does anyone have any recommendations? Looking for something that throws pretty far, and doesn't cost a fortune (£60 max if possible).

You're not going to get anything special for £60. You'll get something from China for that money which will last a couple of years and will throw an OK amount of light. You need to spend £300-400+ to get a good quality light bar.

Personally I think light bars look incredibly tacky on cars. Even on 4x4s they don't look that good.

Swedish-style spot lights look way better.

I might end up putting some on my A6 at some point - just need to fabricate a bracket to bolt them to something solid behind the bumper first.

It's rare that I like the look of spot lights on saloons/estates - but that looks brilliant, may have to have to test how one would look on mine!

Do they throw far?

Have you enquired with your insurance company as to how much they'll charge?

It depends entirely on the lights fitted. Some £30 Ring/Wipac jobbies will be about the same as main beams (no further throw, but will make your main beams seem brighter). If you find some old Hella Comets or similar on Marketplace they'll be better.

The ultimate driving lights are made by LightForce. They'll light up the next half mile in front of you like the sun.
