Hella 450 Driving lights

Post#1 » Mon Dec 02, 2019 12:19 pm

Does anyone know if the Hella 450 driving lights will fit on the front bumper under the brush guard? The distance I am measuring for the opening is about 4" ~102mm and the size of the 450 light is 115mm. However the light is tapered in the back so it may fit. Also, I have seen these lights (or something similar) mounted in this same spot. I know the brush guard is mounted correctly since it is was factory installed on the G. Any experience with this would be helpful. Thanks

2005 G500 \ w463

Thats helpful. It looks like yours are moved a little bit towards the front of the bumper. I may consider doing that if they are tight.

Odly enough, the dam bumper had those holes from the factory all ready there! Like it was made for them!

Ha - Yeah I have seen a lot of 460's with them attached. It probably was a factory option. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case with the 463. No problem though. Drilling a couple holes is not a big deal. Just want to make sure I can make them fit. Are yours fog or driving?

Ghia, what happened to the Lang Offroad bull bar?

Just placed an order for them. Will see if they fit. If not I can use them on another vehicle. Thanks

Ghia - cool website. I just finished building out a 4x4 Sprinter about a year ago.
