Default Comparison of Philips Xtreme power with Philips HID 35 watt 6000 kelvin

There is far less scatter/glare in the HID system when compared to the ordinary bulb which makes me come to the conclusion that the Cruze headlight was designed for HID and not for Halogen bulbs.
Hella pencil beams in lieu of the FOGs next month is what I am planning on getting. Will have to get fog receptacles too.
Let the pictures do the talking. They are all taken in manual mode and the last two photos taken at higher speeds to get the exposure right.

While i have seen some fantastic mods from this guy autopsyche, this one looks like a desperate mod. Like someone said the colour, and the exhaust looks very sad and i would personally prefer elegant looking alloys of the Eu cars than the flashy white.
@Ricky, IMO, stripes better suits for someone who is in the college. NO ? just my take. no offence

Default Re: Chevy Cruze mods HID night photography.

The first photo is with high shutter speed and small aperture just to give you an idea of the beam spread. The second is with camera held above the head from the rear/boot of the car. The third is with me sitting on my haunches at eye level with the headlight high beams. The fourth is with me standing. Notice there is no glare when I am standing which means there is no stray beam which is what I was warned against on the net. It is a different story when the light is positioned upward. The last is a close up. To conclude all those with the Cruze get the Philips HID preferably with 4300 kelvin as its a perfect match for the Cruze headlight assembly.

Small observation after driving in the rain last night from Chalakudy to Kochi in Kerala.

First the positives.
Sight with 6000 kelvin HID in the pouring rain is similar to normal halogens. The main benefit is that the white markers on the road are far more clear and prominent.

The negatives are that the shoulders of the road are still not visible when there is oncoming traffic in the opposite lanewith high beam(I do not have fog lamps installed).

The other major let down is that when I come up behind another vehicle and the other vehicles tire makes a mist of the water on the road I cannot see anything but the warning/parking lights on the car in front which leads me to think that 6000k HID lights are an absolute no no for use in foggy and misty conditions.

Hoping to source 4100k lights from abroad in the near future.

I think more than the Cruze reflectors it is the Philips lights which cause it to be pretty focused. I have these Philips HIDs in my Innova and they have a pretty sharp cutoff too.

I hope in high beam there is no glare to oncoming traffic.
Thats great though with the sharp cut off, which means there are two vehicles with reflectors that do not cause glare to oncoming traffic. Hope there are more cars with compatible reflectors.

I completely agree. The stripes and the wheels look fantastic. But a simple dual-exhaust setup would've looked better IMO. One on either side of the bumper.

How i wish the color of the car had been dark grey
have seen this car a couple of times in chanakya puri and aaround. sounds great and also the exhausts look real nice in real life. also it has lamborghini like Y-LED tails. the finish of the exhaust tips is also nice.
i mean it does look wierd in the pics but seemed good in person.

This is modification that I am saving up for what ever be the cost. HID would seem like candle lights in front of this.

@drpullockaran: I was driving around with an identical setup. Philips Ballasts with 6000K H4 HIDS. It took a while abut I realised that putting HIDS in reflectors caused excessive glare to oncoming traffic. Despite using my low beams, I found myself facing high beams from ticked off oncoming traffic more often that I'd care to recall. I kept them because I did not have a better option.

Last month I finally managed to source all the components for a projector setup for the Cruze. Sadly I was not aware of autopsych's project blood red. As it turns out I now have identical lights to the ones in that project. Instead, I imported all the components myself albeit for a LHD vehicle, modified the projectors for RHD use and had the final install done at Carnation (thanks to Mr. Mastan).

I strongly recommend you opt for projectors as the difference in your own driving visibility is phenomenal and the glare for oncoming traffic is hugely reduced. Both these factors make for much safer driving.

Here are few pics of modified Chevy Cruze seen in the Expo held in Bangalore Palace Grounds.
The head light with DRLs(in the black Cruze) seems to be the same as the one in post#55
There were another pair of straight DRLs fixed at an angle on the bumper air scoops.
