Question Xenon's...for NHC best and cheapest qualities?

I dont have much knowledge on xenon's..so wanted to know..what kinds of xenon's are available at the market and at what price.
Also was wondering if my pocket permits to get xenon's on my nhc..but the prices i've heard dont seem to go below 30k..
any suggestions?
what would be the costing for only low beam..and for both high beam and low beam both?

You can get a good one for around 20k..Prices also depend on the intensity like 6000k, 8000k etc.

Since ur in Delhi, ask Autopsyhe and u'll get the best stuff available

I dont think they have much experience in HIDS. POINT 1 : Xenons should be bought from company which atleast has 5 years of expertise. Well every one gives 1 yr warranty , but practially they should last for the life time of the car.

HID bulbs normally have a life of about 2500 operating hours as claimed by the manufacturers. Just the bulbs cost about Rs.3000-5000 for replacement later on. All companies offer one year warranty only. I use Benz, P4 or Philips ranging from 6000k to 12500k intensities and depending upon the budget which normally starts from Rs.20,000 onwards.

@Vtec : I think those are just over priced white/blue halogens.
