As i had mentioned it before on the thread that i would be doing the bulb upgrade to 100w for Hi-beam which has bulb no.9005 as no upgrade options available for 9006 no bulb except for Extreme Vision which i already have.

So finally today got the bulbs of Hi-beam upgraded to 100w 9005 HB3 costing 650 per piece along with relay and wiring the bulb is of Navara company of Germany its OEM to Bmw and Merc.

The bulbs which came out of the hi-beam position were philips extreme vision 60w with bulb no 9006 which after little bit of mods to the bulbs manage to fit them inside the low-beam and coupled with the new 100w Hi-beam the difference is SUPERB!!

Total cost to me was
650x2 for bulbs = 1300
Relay + wirring + sockets + labor =1500

Total =2800rs am not counting the cost of Extreme vision here as i already had them.
but just for record each bulb of extreme vision is 475rs.

Will let the pics do the talking, dont know how to add text before each pic so
1st pic All Lights OFF
2nd pic Low Beam having 60w Philips extreme vision
3rd pic Hi + Low + fogs
4th pic Hi + Low + fogs to give depth of view of light throw
5th pic Bulb box.


@sdking
The extreme vision were improvement over the absolute blind and rubbish stock bulbs but yet didn satisfy 100% it satisfied me only 70% but current setup am very much satisfied.
Looks better than stock in the pictures. Lets change my set up on Monday

Has anyone tried changing the interior lights with the LEDs? Can someone guide on the options available and how they rate?

Checked with Pai Auto, Santacruz. They informed that the Xtreme Visions are not available in the Philips Spec lamps i.e. 9005/9006. The person said for Civic they have only in Essential Power which is 30% more light.

hi guys,

I started my Civic today and was idling the engine for a while, i turned the steering a bit left/right and as i was doing same i observed the tacho needle rose a bit and the engine sound grew a bit louder.Is this normal ? i understand the power steering is powered by the engine but will it cause the tacho needle to rise when turned at idle.The needle did not actually rise very high or something but sort of twicthed when i turned the steering a bit.

thanks

Could it be that your fan got switched on and you saw a small increase in rpm from 800 to a 1000+ and back?

Pretty normal with Hydraulic steering. The steering pump is powered by the engine and hence the rpm will increase when you are using the steering on idle. In fact, you will hear a proper whin when you lock the steering on each end (left or right).
