    I've got the Black Magic 500's as well. I just installed them behind my billet grill 2 weeks ago. I love the look. They are kind of stealthy. :D

    Good light output. When I got them properly aimed I could drive without the headlights on, but as stated above, they don't spread the light out side to side as much as the headlights do.

    If you are putting them behind a grill, and want the "stealthy" look, they are worth the extra few bucks IMO.

    i have them on my all black truck. they look great but unimpressed with the light out put not that i need them due to my retrofit but. if i where you i would go with light force 170. tough light and many choices for beam color and configuration all around in my opinion a way better light and if i had it to do over again i would get the light force for sure! i have the 1,000 series and they look awesome i installed a grill craft and assembled a custom bracket to mount them on. they are only a few very close to the grill craft it looks sweet but like i said the light force is by far a better choice for light out put and durability.
