Default Pics of Hella FF1000

Anyone have some pics of ther Hella FF1000 on here WRX? If you have any with the lights on, that would be great. Also is it possible for those lights to match a 6000K HID? Doesnt have to be a perfect match but if they look pretty close, that would be cool. Anyways let me know and lets see those pics

The halogen versions of the FF1000s will not match 6000K HIDin colour. The HID version will come closer. However, since the FF1000 HIDs are rally lamps, they are most likely optimised for maximum light output, meaning they will be about 4100K-4300K; this light will be very white as opposed to the blueish-white of 6000K bulbs.

For pics, do a search under FF1000.

Sorry for hijacking, but is that a Hella bi-xenon? Looks a bit large for the 90mm module.

Yep, Hella bi-xenon's retrofitted into the stock MY03 headlights....


Let's just say I have probably one of the best lit roads in front of me...

Here is a pic of just the low's in action...http://www.pbase.com/image/25069160

Thanks. I saw that picture from the link you provided on a previous post.

It still seems larger than a 90mm unit (which the bi-xenon should be afaik).

Do those FF1000's work with the Kartboy lamp brackets? Or do you need to use the Hella brackets?

They look a little bigger because they have a shroud from a Mercedes around the projector unit...to give a finished look.

I believe they would. Have you purchased the lights an/or bracket yet?

If not, just buy this kit from rallylights.com: HL74539W ($152 for the lights and brackets for our WRX's)

I haven't bought anything yet, still doing my research, and still trying to convince myself to buy them (need to wait a little bit too, just bought a rear anti-sway bar)

This is a bit of thread digup, but are you guys who are running the 100W bulbs in your Hella 500s running them with the stock wiring harnesses? Got any melts yet?

Don't run anything over 55w with the stock wiring... Guaranteed you'll melt something. Maybe not right away, but something will go kaput sooner or later.

[casual observation: my previous posts in this thread were made before my current lighting addiction...]

Better yet, save 20 bucks and buy the two parts separate (at least while they have the lights on sale). I just installed Tuesday night. Even in the dark it only took a bit over an hour. Lighting is awesome.

wich 100 watt bulb would be used in the ff1000s. I would like to order both at the same time. I see that they sell hallogen H1's and Xenon H1's. Would either work?

Thanks !

Oh, unless you have the HID specific FF1000 lamps, get the Halogen bulbs.

I have two questions, the first one is about the ground wire supplied with the lights. It doesnt look long enough to go from one light to the other. So was woundering if any one just used a seperate ground for both lights? Or did you make the supplied one work.

Sec question is about the bracket supplied. It doesnt look like it alows for much adjustment down. When its as far down as it will go, the globe is still posistioned a degree up or two. Has anyone else had problems with the lights aimed too high? I guess i could shim the braket against the bumper to point it down some more.

Well, i have a custom wiring harness so everything's grounded back to the battery. If you're putting the lamps in the OEM foglamp wells, and you're not using bulbs higher than 55w, then you can just plug them into the OEM wiring.

As for the bracket, i have no idea...

Nope, 100watters. Ill just have to make my own ground harness. Still in question about the brakets though. The workmanship is beautiful, but they dont give any room for adjustment other then up.

I'm not sure what you mean. My Prodrive lamps (rebranded FF1000s) had all the adjustment I needed. You could just bend the bracket down if there isn't enough high adjustment though.
