Boojh sako to jaane ! That is just the normal low beam pattern...

Focus is perfect on the road & DOES NOT blind oncoming traffic.

Ricky that is not normal pattern. The normal pattern should show something like:
http://firehawk.jonbroomfield.com/hidinfo/beam_pattern.jpg

Where both the "cuts" in the dip beam point towards one side. (The pic is from USA so for us it should be reverse) The low "cut" beam should be on the side of oncoming traffic and the uncut beam towards the other side where pedestrian or such are illuminated.

In your picture the low beam cuts are from opposing sides. I suspect you have on one RHS and one LHS drive beam fitted. I will try to capture and post pics from my own car later.

See the right hand side of wall in your pic below. That beam is what will shine in the eyes of oncoming traffic even though you are on low beam. The left side of wall is as it should be in Indian conditions.

I respect your POV, but I have actually sat in a car (Swift) & stared at the Pajero's lights on Low beam & believe you me - they did not hurt my eye.

Your POV on the RHD & LHD maybe correct, I have no way of knowing if the lights were changed. They both "look" the same age to me...

Anyway thanks for the Gyaan !! So what say +1 to the Vitara ??


cheers

The latest update. Got the A/C relay changed, as the cooling was almost dead at idle or in a traffic jam, the electric fan would not come on, hence no cooling. Problem corrected, me totally happy.

Another niggle was that the temp needle would not rise beyond "C", I was happy, BUT I knew this could lead to trouble in case there was ever a leaking hose pipe, as the temp would not show HOT. So got the sensor changed with an OE one. This has also shortened the glow plug light duration. Got it done in time else, would have had a blown glow plug as well.

All in all it is going great guns right now, hope it stays that way.

Considering a lift & Maxxis Big horns next. Let's see when & if that happens.



Cheers

Any tips from Pajero owners (or otherwise) about reducing or rather eliminating rattling in the Pajero. I am told that one has to live with the rattles if one wants a Pajero. I really do hope that is not true.

Could loose door hinges be the culprit ? I think it may be a combination of door rubber, hinges & the inside plastics. Though the rubber on the doors look & "feel" fine, but they are of 1998 vintage..

Any thoughts / suggestions ??




Cheers

Looking at replacing tyres with Yokohama Geolanders M/T's @ 9750 INR for 31/10.5/15's. The pattern is WOW, wonder if the size is right ?? Also have the option of 33/12.5/15's at 11k (approx)

From what I understand the 33" tyres will foul with the suspension & shall merit a body lift & maybe spacers. I intend using the OE rims.

Any gyaan from the fraternity would be welcome..




Cheers

Hey Ricky,
Though the Yokos are really good tyres on and off road, any particular reason you are not considering other tyres like Michelin, Continental, Bridgestone etc.

I am asking this I too am in the initial buying phase as I will be needing to change the tyres on my Cruiser in the next 10k kms or so. Therefore any insight from you would be welcome.
Cheers mate

Hi Harjeev


Oh no - no particular reason other than availability. Yokohama has a good dealer here, who is knowledgeable & a pleasure to deal with. He comes across as a guy who is helpful & would go the extra mile if one were to have warranty issues.

Where as most Karol Bagh shops have a more options, so actually you may be able to advise me as you live close to the market.

I am not closed to ideas / options. Just that I found the Yoko's dependable. I can easily deffer the purchase as my tyres can easily run 10k maybe more without any worries.


Cheers

Are you sure you want M/T's? They make sense if your off-road/on-road ratio is 9:1 at the least. If not, you would end up with lot of highway noise and of course, fast wear! I would recommend sticking to A/T's - no dirth of options here: Yoko's, Michelins, BFs.

i agree with cool.dude
MT tyres make sense when offroad is your primary use. what ive decided for my vehicle is a regular AT pattern. MT will wear out very soon on constant on-roan use. again this is just my opinion, maube the experts suggest better

Harjeev - this is for your Safari, correct? If yes, which brands are you looking at?

The popular vote seems to go for the A/T's !! Ya I understand that the M/T's would not be good for everyday use. What of BF Goodrich ?? How do they measure against the Yoko's ?? Or Continental's for that matter.

I have no experience with the BF Goodrich & Continental, but they are known to be competent.


Cheers

P.S. cool_dube, I think Harjeev is looking to replace tyres on the LC
