Amazing pictures there. They capture the stillness of the night yet the cheerfulness of the cars (and the people).
Take ten kudos.

Sirjee, you're never late for party rather you're the party-starter
My pics also went blurry too. These were some best shots.

Lets have another meet and we'll have another load of pictures.

Hey, what all was added to the wiring besides the bulbs? Cutouts, Relays, ballasts? these are H4 HID bulbs right? what's the wattage 90/100?

And lastly the cost of the entire setup and how much additional will the projector lenses cost.

BTW you have the hottest vento on TBHP and the most driven one too I guess

Thank you sir.
The HID Kit comes with bulbs, wiring and ballasts.
Yes these are H4 HID bulbs - 35 W. It was around 8000 INR.
I would suggest you to go directly for projector setup. If you are going only for HIDs, please buy the 55w - H4 bulbs.
Both the projector setup and 55w were not available when I upgraded the bulbs.
(I could not upgrade to projectors as my HID bulbs are H4 and projectors implement H1 bulbs)

What brand are the bulbs, wiring and the ballasts? and since you have gone for service did they notice it (read warranty issues)?

Besides that any yellowing on the reflectors or any fried wires?

Thanks!

The brand is from P8.
There are no issues in service (already did two services).
There is no yellowing or fried wires.

Thanks! So the total costs for wiring, bulbs and ballasts and install was 8,000? Not bad!

Also, any idea what will be the cost for the 55W ones! Will that too need ballasts since it is same rating? You think this installation can be a DIY?

I guess its most the same rate. I guess it will come within 10000 INR. Yes, it would also need the ballasts.
Yes, installation is a DIY. But, i would suggest expert's help.
