So do you still recommend Micro Fogs? I'm inclined to do it but waiting for 3inch fogs that they said would be available soon. Can you please share the wiring diagram as to how the lights were controlled?

XP Micro has huge improvement and night driving is effortless. I have checked output shots of other owners with XP Micro and most of them do not have any streaks like my setup. My advice is to check the XP Micro properly before installation. Look for streaks, cut off and hot spot.

I am not very sure about it. It was almost 1 AM when my installation was done.

Update : XP Micro Streaks

Rajat from Xenon Planet checked my projectors thoroughly. According to him, the bulb was not seating properly and also it required some fine tuning. He has assured me that the output has no streaks and little more brighter now. Due to lack of time, I would be getting it installed next month.

Corrected output shot of my Micro, as sent by Xenon Planet :

This looks promising. Great improvement with a well centered hot spot. If the throw is also good enough, then this is perhaps all that you will need.

I couldn't get the XP Micro re installed at Bangalore. I was busy with another modification ( Wolf Remap). I will get it installed during next Bangalore visit.

Also, Xenon Planet is getting another version of XP Micro fog projector. It has 3 inch lens and would be perfect fit in place of S-Cross fog lamps ( no gap around like 2.5 inch XP Micro)

I have my appointment fixed for this Friday, 28/04 to get the 3 inch XP Micro installed in my EcoSport. Will share an update here since I think creating a new thread won't add any value. Though I was already sold on this product for the ease of installation, thanks to Dr. Naren for coming up with this review which helped me nail it down.

Happy to hear that my review was helpful

I hope you would be satisfied with new 3 inch XP Micro. According to Xenon Planet, it's slightly better in output than my 2.5 inch XP Micro. Do post output shots post installation.

Cheers!!

Hey, that's nice as you're getting the 3 inch one over the 2.5 inch unit that was being sold.

If you don't mind, can you share the price of the 3 inch projector unit and details of the bulb used - wattage, Kelvin temperature?!

I bought them a few days back when they were running a 15% discount. Projector costed 13600 and another 2000 will be charged for installation. I find the installation charges a little high but will see what effort goes into installing these. I currently see the Micros listed for 15000 which is 1000 cheaper than before. Specifications are, 4300k H8/H11 HID bulb and 35W XP Premium ballast with CANbus. I am unaware of the bulb make and would check it out on Friday or Dr. Naren can advise.

I would get a good idea on how they perform while traveling back to Jaipur from Delhi during late evening. Will surely post some shots by Monday since I would be busy attending my cousin's marriage over the weekend.

Was it the pay now and late delivery offer (15 percent discount)from Xenon Planet?

I just checked their website. Both 2.5 and 3.0 inch are listed at 15K.

My Bulbs are CN light H11, 4300k. You can choose 3000k / 4300k / 5000k / 6000k. 4300k is the most practical.

Yes, precisely the time when they were running a discount on delayed delivery. I have chosen 4300k too since visibility wont be problem during the winters.

Can you please share the actual snaps of the product here? And also of the wiring provided. Have they sent any relay with it?
