500FF is brighter and spreads more.

Nice bracket!! I'm probably going the flush style grill and I'm wondering if I get the Hella 500 or Hella 500FF Driving lights will the light still be visible and usable since the lights won't be as close to the grill as the OP's. Not sure if I will go HID at first, just have never done any HID upgrades so not sure how hard it is.

Not bad conversion at all. Well worth it.

Gus 524, that's correct. All you need to make sure is that it's an H3 bulb. 55w or 35w and color temp are your choice. I bought the 55w 6000k kit from VVME and plan on installing it soon!

I thought I remember earlier in the tread someone said this and the op responded saying that it would be fine with 55 watt. Anyone want to expand on this.
