Default Dyna Headlight Swap

Wanting to replace the stock headlight on my 2012 Wide Glide. Looking for a recommendation on the Moco 5 3/4" vs the 4 1/2" Bullet shell. I ordered the 5 3/4" as that was the diameter of the stock fixture, but after looking at it when it arrived it looks huge, probably because the shell is deeper. Anyone have an opinion on which unit looks better installed. Any difference in illumination between the two.

I had the 5 3/4 bullet, I put the stock back on. It just looked to modern for My bike. Now
I'm swapping it out for a 7" stock bucket.

I got a 5 3/4, just so I could use the factory bulb with the bar and sheild logo. It is 9" deep. I thought it was huge till I got it mounted. I think it's pretty cool. I bought it from Demon Cycles on E-bay. I think I paid around $80 for it.

Thanks for the input and links to the previous threads. I think I'll keep the 5.75" it does look better on the forks of the Wide Glide.
