Auxillary rally lights? Ideas?

So I live up in western NY and we have some dark roads with plenty of dear, crazy weather and some dirt backroads I love to tear up. Does anyone have rally style aux lights installed? I think I want to do something like this but I can’t find too much in the way of pictures to see how it would look. It seems to be pretty popular in the Mini Cooper scene but not ours. If you’ve done this I’d love to see a picture. I could always do a stealth LED light bar but I think I like the Hella light bar style... well I think anyways, need some pictures to confirm, haha!

Interesting you bring this up. This was one of the first things I did on my WRX....I bolted on a front crash bar and some Hella lamps. I've been looking and see NO good mount options for the GTI, except maybe mounting them to the roof rack, but then the rack becomes somewhat permanent due to the wiring you'd have to wire/hide. I don't think anyone has created a bolt-on solution and I tried to talk GTI Jake into fabbing one up, but no bueno. I'd be the first to get one. I love throwing yellow light a long ways down country roads at night! I've actually got a question into rally innovations for a MK7 application.

And no way am I buying a rigid industry light bar or LED spot light....way too expensive.

Need to bump this up as rallyinnovations just got back with me and is interested in making a MK7 version of this:

Won't block sensors and wouldn't interfer with a crash, so not concerned. Best place, outside of a true rally hood with the light housings molded in.

I made some cups I 3D printed out of ABS, and then glued into the lower grill; I got some Toyota truck generic fog lamp housings that slip in from the back and use a yellow LED bulb. I did this project mostly as an homage to older rally cars, but they work pretty well too! Up close it looks factory, and doesn't block the flow.
