I want to convert my hella 500 driving lights to hid
they are setup to work with the high beams
The question is how well do hids handle the constant on/off
cycles?

I did the conversion as well with some hella 500s and my headlights. The hellas aren't connected to go on and off with my headlights, but the headlights are a similar situation to your 500's. Anyways I had one bulb on the headlights burn out on me after 3 years with the HIDS, and no problems with the 500s. I went with the kit from DDM tuning. It was their cheapest kit.

Make sure your ballasts are secured well if you plan on wheeling and make sure you close the new larger hole in the back of your hellas so moisture doesn't get in the lights. You will notice that it takes a few seconds for the lights to warm up and get their full brightness. Good luck with the project. Its not hard and provides much better lighting.
