Default Hella ff500's

I installed some driving lights (hella ff50's) on my front bumper with light tabs, set up the wiring so i can swap out the lights with the ff500's if i want, my question is i was thinking of getting some 100w bulbs to replace the 55w in the 500's, what size wiring would i need to run for these? would it melt the housing? and is it alright to mount these on my bumper and it wont interfere with cooling? also if i do this where s a good place to get 100w bulbs

You should spend your money on converting them to HIDs. 35w HIDs are 3x brighter than halogen, and once you do it you will be glad you did

The bulb you need is a 9006 for fogs

Dont waste your money on halogen replacements. Get HIDs (3000k for yellow)

Ya. HID kits are plug and play. You don't rewire anything

well when you go to the page, which i did, it looks as if it needs to be wired up to put in, sorry my bad, but wow quoting me 3 times wasn't that a bit much, simply sayin that it is a plug in application would've done the job, i work to much to research anything or do any heavy mods that's y i said plug n play in the 1st place
