"Almost" One year update- The light bar is till doing well; came in useful many times driving on the many National Forest roads around Washington state. Having it mounted low on the license plate bracket means the wide beam reaches lower than the headlights and lights up a greater amount of area. The night shots from the GoPro don't do the light output justice: it's honestly much brighter than the stock high beams. The light bar does stick out a few inches from the bumper but it doesn't bother me as much as I would've thought although it does somewhat affect the look of the car. This mounting solution was the only one I could find that didn't involve drilling/cutting, as well as being easily reversible. From head on and the front three quarters view, it doesn't seem to protrude that far out as the slit in the grill creates somewhat of an illusion. Only viewing from top down or sides does the light bar look out of place. Holding up well so far.
