I am also thinking of getting Off-road LED 20 Inch Bar to install between the lower lip and grill. Can anyone suggest me on the legality and if its allowed?
These are the LED light bar and can anyone suggest me the size required or are 20 inch fine?
LED bulbs for High beam won't be good. They will look better, and may be brighter, but it will not work perfectly on the reflector designed for halogens, due to difference in design of LEDs and Halos. You will end up creating a lot of glare for the oncoming traffic.
Changing license plate lights is okay. Go for a warm white colour, it would look better. There are many designs available in T10 holder shape. There are projector ones (LEDs which project the light to a direction and look brighter), SMD ones (one single piece of SMD LED illuminates, brighter and more power efficient) and LED ones (which have a set of LEDs, better for spreading illumination). Cost would be higher online (due to shipping and other charges), better is to get them from shops. I got 2 Projector type for Rs. 50 from Delhi. They normally don't get kaput and in most cases, a loose fitting results in problems.
Installing a light bar is illegal I think, else everyone would have been having it installed. It produces hell lot of glares if not positioned properly and breaks the stock look very badly IMO
. Someone from the legal background would be able to confirm. IMO
it would look overdone and getting Hella fog lamps (seperate) on a sleek steel rod (fixed on the lower grill) would be better.
