Xenons are only low-beam, and the high-beam is usually normal halogen.

If u want both as xenons, i think u should be looking at Bi-Xenons which will cost a bit as well.

An alternative is to get Philips Crystal Vision bulbs, say 100/90. They will be bright enough and are xenon lookalikes as well

xenon are avliable in delhi for nearly 15-20k depending on the make. and these crystal vision and etc stand no chance in front of good set of xenon. If u have a good budget u should go for xenon.
