Not sure why the Hellas didn't play nice with your mounting hardware. I do my best to steer people toward Cibies, but nobody is willing to spend the money, and Hella has far stronger market presence in the US.


Looking up the Cibies they are only like $10 more then the Hella, I just didn't know about them. Are they a more true diameter?

I don't know about diameter (that may be an issue with the retaining rings), but they're a whole lot better light. Distribution is better on low beam, with a wider and more even spread of light, and there's less vertical separation between low and high beam.

High quality junk here: intro thread and slow build thread

Did you know? Willys is just Willis spelled differently, but pronounced the same. Neither Willy nor his apostrophe are involved.

I may give them a try in the future then!

Well....
Currently none of our cars are in a garage, living that apartment life.
And I don't have the SRT4 anymore, I sold it and bought a 2001 Mercedes CL600, yes my friends that is the model with the 5.8 Liter V12. For some reason I feel like I have to defend myself a little bit every time I mention it, I am not a Mercedes guy, but I am a CAR GUY, I like all cars and I really like cars that go fast
That being said they only reason I bought this car was it had insanely low miles and was insanely cheap because the dealer that had it didn't want to fix a check engine light for misfires. (If my wife asks though, it was because the SRT4 had aftermarket coil-over suspension that was destroying my back and the Merc is way more comfortable )

All that to say that yes, I think the WW will always have a place in the garage, and I will probably make room for my wifes Jeep if the weather is bad enough.
