Narva 225 driving light kits. Put them on for Christmas!

When we checked out Narva’s new Ultima 225 Combo kits recently, and read about how well they performed in 4WD magazine tests, we knew they were exactly what we needed to stock. Especially, when the kits come with a complete ‘Plug and Play’ wiring loom that includes a mouse switch, fuse and fuse holder, relay and relay block, and cables insulated with corrugated tubing. There’s even a patented switching box that allows the loom to work on positive or negative wiring.

Each kit contains a pair of Swedish designed Narva Ultima 225 (8.85”) lamps (1 x broad beam, and 1 x pencil beam) featuring aluminium ‘free-form’ technology reflectors, virtually unbreakable polycarbonate lenses, polycarbonate ‘see-though’ lens protectors, rotary cup mounting system, and a glare shield at the top of the lamp to screen stray light.

There are three kits:

225-71700 has 100W globes and clear lenses.

225-71700BE sports 100W globes and blue lenses, which are claimed to provide a whiter, crisper light. For a limited time, we have either kit available for just $330 (Normally around $440).

The mother-of-all-lights version is the 225-71700HID with 35W globes that produce thee times more light, and provide five times the life expectancy of a standard halogen globe. The 35W globe reduces power Consumption and as the increased colour temperature (4150degreeK) is closer to daylight, it helps reduce eye fatigue that can occur on long journeys. When compared to other HID kits on the market, our price of $899 is fantastic value for such a high-spec product.

We offer free delivery, by insured post, to anywhere in Australia. http://www.4wd1.com/

‘Unless, of course, America goes bust in the meantime…which it will. It is a mathematical certainty,”

They were written by Top Gear presenter, Jeremy Clarkson.

Queensland cops test H3 Hummer


The current fleet of Landcruisers used by the police in Queensland is due for replacement and, as part of the review and assessment process, some Hummer H3 vehicles are being tested.

According to a Brisbane newspaper, the Deputy Commissioner, Ian Steward, said the H3 is significantly cheaper than the Toyota, and its efficiency is equal or better.

Really? Can you imagine five big and burly Queensland cops squeezed into the cabin of a Hummer H3?

Then there’s the black H3 that Queensland Police is using in its ‘undercover operations’ fleet. It’s hard to believe. If a black, unmarked, Hummer tried to pull you over, would you think it was the police? Would you stop? We wouldn’t. We’d floor the pedal of the Jeep and head for the closest narrow-gutted street, or any other place that didn’t allow super-wide vehicles.
