I am looking for auxiliary lights for my XUV as well. While these lights can be operated via a remote, you would still have to connect them to the battery? If so, have to do it via dealer only, to protect the warranty?

Yes Ajay, it has to be connected to the battery and the switch will be always on near the battery. The control switch linked to the actual switch and the remote will take of this.

And it is not really required to do it via a dealer, and since you are not splicing any wires warranty should not be an issue. You can check with Avinash once he does it. Even I might go for that.

I am definitely leaning towards more powerful lights- auxiliary or other wise. Basis previous experience that you guys had with shadows and stuff, aux seems to be the way forward. On my recent roadtrip to Rajasthan, narrowly avoided kissing a few cows that were treating the NH as their personal jogger's park Will check with Avinash on this.

Ajay, see this - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...ml#post3947299

You can also see this thread for more details - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...-no-holes.html (Remote controlled Auxiliary Lights: No splices, no wires, no holes)

I am likely to add those Hella FF lights this weekend. As soon as done, I will update my ownership thread. You can check the details there hopefully by Monday or so!

Looking forward to it. As there is no splicing involved, should not impact warranty, though one can never be sure, if A.S.S or manufacturer are looking for excuses to deny an expensive warranty claim.
