    Going to pick up some new bulbs for my 500s, really would like some more output without an HID upgrade. So my question is can I put 100 watt h3s in the 500s with out any problems, or should I stick to the 55 watt?

    If you put 100 w bulbs in there you should upgrade all the wiring to 12g to accommodate the amps it requires.

    Watts/volts=amps

    12g can handle up to 20 amps.

    For that matter, you can buy the DDM tuning HID kit for what it would cost you to buy the 55w Sylvania Silver Stars...
