Default Re: LED Headlamp Bulbs are here! The end of HID?

Picked up these H4 LED lamps (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/H4-H...311.0.0.rYx9BH) from Aliexpress and installed them in my 2009 i10.

Have a Tata Hexa XTA which comes with low beam projectors and high beam halogens. I am satisfied with the halogen high beam but the low beam in city traffic is quite inadequate. Both bulbs are H7 so I need assistance for upgrading the bulbs of low beam projectors. Should I opt for leds or HID for high beam? I also observed that both high beam and low beam cut off a bit on the right side I think it is to prevent glare against oncoming traffic I wanted to know whether this can be fixed? Regards.

I guess you meant low beam. I would recommend HIDs over LEDs anyday (as of now). Since you are satisfied with the high beams, upgrade your low beams to 4300k HIDs. As for the cutoff, this is what you see in RHD cars. Wouldn't recommend altering it's alignment.

Yes sir I meant low beams it was a typographical error. Sir any leads or links as to where should I procure HIDs for the projectors. I have made some research across some forums and i have come to the conclusion that the projectors themselves are inadequate. So i am in need of some assistance to choose a HID unit. Regards.

You may check out Morimoto HIDs. They are priced similarly when compared to Philips and Osram. They have a dealer in Mumbai and Delhi. Please check their website for details.

It also depends on the quality of projectors.
