Re: Hella 500's

<< I have a problem with my Hella 500's (round clear lens driving 
 light).  I only used the lights a few times and already both are 
 cracked all over the place.
 I would dismiss it as rock damadge but my friend had the same thing 
 happen to his lights.
 We did upgrade to 100W bulbs. 
 Could the high watts have cracked the lights?!
 TIA for any input.

I doubt it, because I have Hella 550's (rectangles) with 100w lights, and
have not had a problem.  I keep them covered unless in use, but in use
includes hour long drives, and they still look like new (8 months since I
installed.)  Also, A friend has a trick GTV-6 alfa with 500 (100w) rounds,
and they are uncovered constantly, and they have no problems...
