I am thinking of putting a light bar on my Forester and are researching what Hella lamp to put on.


SO far I think the 500 series would work the best, but I don't know if I should go with the driving or fog lamps.


The Rallye 4000's are nice as well....what does everyone think of them?


Thanks

Based on the specs (12V H3 bulb, 55W each) and size (163mm dia., 6.4 ins), I think the 500's might be the largest lights to consider. Fog- or driving style will depend on your conditions and intended use.

Personally, I think the 4000's would be too big, both electrically (12 V H1 bulb, 100W each) and mechanically (222mm dia., 8.75 ins).

They will be used mostly for the darks roads I travel on home from work. I work until 9PM every night and have to drive country roads. Bad weather as well!

What about the 700 series?

EDIT - Nevermind...the 700's are big as well. I'm thinking the 500FF fogs might be the way to go!

I have the 500ff fogs behind the grill of my fsxt with yellow bulbs. I like them alot. It took some adjusting to get the light pattern to shine properly & you do loose some light in the corners of the bumper. But all in all I am very happy.

Great! What year is your FSXT? I have a 2006. I think I am going to pick up the Rally Innovations light bar. Thoughts?

EDIT: How did you wire your fogs?

Its a 07. I used the wiring kit that came with the lights & wired it to a factory switch.
