anyone rate Maxtel lights? ive heard very little about them, but i brought myself a set and want to mount them like the rally mk1/2 escorts. quality wise, they feel pretty good, thought i would go for some lights with mounts that would be more up to the job cause i broke one of my hella 550's :lol:

http://www.cardomain...064_86_full.jpg

thats them on my cardomain, i yet to still mount them,
and yes, before you ask, they did come off ebay :grin:
thats 400W's of lighting, plus the 2 headlights (which im upgrading to xeon or similar, cant remember exactly what there called!) and my hellas (55x4)
620Watts WOOOOO! lmao

Well, I use each type for a different purpose ....I have fog/driving/flood-spot. Conditons are always changing so, it means changing lights for conditions. I think the 520 fogs are my most used favs..Great for rain, snow, deer, elk, coyotes, bear, mtn goats....boulders, blowdown!!!:eek:

I've only got 2 Hella's on the front bullbar. But I wanted to put two Hella Comet 500's and two Rallye 1000's on the rollbar/sportsbar. But I'm still spending money on the important things, like EJ22. I edited a couple of pictures of the lights on my roof, but I can't seem to find them now.

I like your lightage scoobyclimbs. :)

Finally got a chance to try out the Lightforce 240s on my F250 last night, and DAAAAAAAAMN! Those things are way better than the 170s on my legacy, which themselves are awesome. I'm definitely going to get the larger lights for my car soon.

scooby, where'd run the power for your light forces? on my impreza i ran wires down the inside trim of the windshield.. but those lights used quite a bit smaller wire...
i was thinking maybe run it back through the trunk gasket?

1.3 KW

I must bow to Matty's 1.3kW display. :eek: What are the outputs of the individual lamps?

However, I have an ace up my sleeve. ;) I'm pushing 700W of forward illumination WITHOUT adding any extra lights to my Brat.... yet. :-p
