Thats a Rally Innovations bar. Give them a call they were willing to build something for us Mk6 guys and gals if there was enough interest.
Also check my other post on page 1 http://ssdperformance.blogspot.com/ is in Lincoln, MO and was willing to drive a decent distance to build one for us and was willing to give me some free/heavily discounted gear for helping him out.
Alternatively I picked up one of these a few weeks back and am going to see how well it holds up with some big washers behind the bumper or some expanding bolts going either into the foam or the bumper bar itself. Ordered a pair of Baja Designs Squadron XLs for it.

I would let them use my car for testing but doesn't do any good since I'm just out side philly. Deff going to look in to what local metal shops would want to possible build something similar to the bull bar so maybe it can provide a little bumper protection from idiots who can't park and a light mounting point. Might have to look in to something front and back. Wouldnt mind having some aux back up lights too. That or a back up cam depends how lazy I get

Picked up a cheap 21" LED bar from amazon, going to play with it some see what kind of setup i can rig up. if i can get a nice setup working, still havent settled on how i want to wire it. independently switched, or switched with fogs/high beams

Interested to see what's been done. I was curious to the laws regarding vehicle lights and found that in Ontario it is a maximum of 4 white or amber lights to the front. There goes tapping into the fogs for me.

Something to keep in mind.

my fogs are my DRL's so i wouldn't want this blinding everyone as i drive around normally! i have a euro switch, and i was playing with the idea of using the rear fog switch as the switch for the light bar.

Either tap it into the high beam or have it individuality switched. I choose the second option.

I don't use DRL and barely the fogs. On a relay with the high beans would be my next choice.
