Question Hellas or PIAA's

I am looking for some wide angle type fog lamps or wide angle driving lights. I need 35 watt due to my 650 output. Any suggestions on which ones? I have looked at the PIAA 510's, but not the Hellas.
Also any ideas for mounting? I have the motech crash bars and would like to use them somehow, I have also looked at the GS light bars which may be a good option. Wish they made more for the Stroms without the GS price. Seems as if there would be a viable US market.
Thanks ya'll

I just bought a set of the 510's from:

http:// www.amotostuff.com

It's a complete kit, including mounting bar, relay, and switch. Maybe I'll get them wired this weekend.

I've got the ADVmoto Piaas, the mount and everything is great, easy to install. The only problem is the V-Strom has such good lights the Piaa's hardly show any differance. They do look cool though. I use them when lane splitting, and the traffic seems to notice me comming.

Put a pair of Optilux (Hella's low end brand BUT VERY HIGH QUALITY) on an AdventureMotoStuff light bar and am very pleased. All that for less than $80.

Bought the lights from http://www.rallylights.com/
