You may need to fab a bracket. But I think 6mm (going off memory) cap bolts (ones with the square sleeve and round head w/o socket) slide right into the tracks. Use a rubber washer between that and the bracket with a few regular steel washers to lock into place.

Mounting a light bar in the bumper is one of the most idiotic things you can do. Sure you can breath with half your mouth and nose covered while sitting but it becomes a lot harder when you run. Same goes for the engine....AC condenser will have to work harder to cool the air, the intercooler temps will be through the roof, and the coolant won't do it's job and oil temps will start to rise to damaging levels.

Lol I had one in my bumper for several months and took it out last weekend for later when I put in an intercooler. I'm stage two though and I logged temps and such several times and it made no noticeable difference... I only got heatsoak just a few times too and I normally run my car pretty hard.. also I haven't felt any improvement since I took it out either.

Just mounted a Rigid Sr-Series 6" Combo PN# 906313 ro my MK6 Golf TDI. Mounted on Smittybilt PN# 2815 - licence plate Light Mount.

Throws a nice beam about 800m, floods up a decent amount surrounding also. The aftermarket Projector Headlights don't have good high beams... So this is a nice supplement.

It's not very obtrusive. I'm just using supplied switch run to cabin for now, will eventually run it through euro switch, to rear fogs maybe. Have some research to do yet to do so. I'll add some more pics next week with light throw, wiring, etc
