Hella 500ff not very impresive

Just got done instaling my 500ff and I am not impressed . I thought they would be brighter. My high beams are just as bright as these things! I guess you get what you pay for.

Yeah the 700FF aren't too much better. I'l be doing the hid conversion soon. It's posted on the top of this lighting forum. Looks like it might help.

if you put a 100w bulb you might over heat the harness of plastic. why don't you convert them to hid, cheaper than buying a new set. most lights are 100w, i have had the piaa 520's and thought they suck. my lightforce hid's are very bright with 55w hid's. save your money and convert

Yea the conversion is the same with the 500 and 700, the 500s are pretty much the same, just the 700s throws a little wider and father beam of light.
