i HAVE seen 100w bulbs in hella 700s, used for over an hour hunting, i was wondering if the same is true for the hella 500s?? do they use the same wiring harness? or will the smaller housing be not up to the task??

you'll need at least 14g wiring (power/ground) for 100s and 12g is better. the 500s should handle them fine. upgrade you fuse/breaker to 20a from the original 15.

if you're wanting to go with 100w bulbs, why not just do a HID conversion?
