Yeah, good question. I bought the FF ones just because I like the look better. I have no idea their difference though

I think it has to do with the light pattern...the 500 have a grid-pattern on the lens, whereas the 500FF do not.

Dunno...I went w/the 500. They're like another set of headlights. If you're looking for off-road lighting, go w/more wattage.

that makes sense. the lense is the focuser on the 500's and the casing is the focuser on the FF's. i got it now haha
