    I saw this on another forum. The guy drilled a hole toward the bottom of the light housing. Just another option for you guys.

    EDIT: after doing this mod, I don't understand HOW this person put the hole here. The extra space is needed behind the HID bulb

    Waiting on my damn pig tail wires and connector to wire my 500ff's up to oem switch THEN the 55w 6000k H3 conversion. Just had to do the drilling for the grommet thing on the wife's Genesis Coupe headlight housings to convert her low beam halogens to 35w 5000k H11s recently. This'll be a snap.........

    My HELLA700 will be arriving tomorrow, got 4 of them! I hope they will be bright enough after I add HID's! Are these street legal btw? Since the 700ff is a "driving light"?lol

    Got four of the 700ff's (DDM 55w 3000K) mounted up the other day.

    It really is like having a sun on your front bumper.
