    when i switched from halogen headlights to hid projector head lights the hella 700's became usless. the light output from the 700's really couldn't be seen anymore over the hid headlights and i just wanted to "clean up" the front end a bit i guess.

    I definitely like the look better now. Nothing against light bars, just not my thing. Plus I like the lights behind the grill look.

    Is that for the whole light including mounting or just the diameter of the light itself?

    Keeping the bar and lights with two yellows in the grill would have look pretty cool.
