The dealer is right, the Roots wiring kit includes new relays & new holders rated upto 130/110. Me & TSK are running the same on our cars with 100/90 bulbs & have not come across any problems. Plus, the kit is pure plug-and-play so not cutting, splicing of any kind is involved.

As for the reflector issue there are loads of people running 100/90's on their Baleno like Kpzen you can ask them if they have a problem.

I couldn't find any aftermarket fogs for my baleno so I bought some cheap (~600) DSAA ? brand lights - they aren't an exact fit but I just left part of the plastic retainer lamp space in place - if you don't look up from too close, you can't tell that they're jury rigged like that.

I also found OE fit aftermarkets for the baleno at Car Raunaq in Sec-16 in Noida for 1000 but the owner advised me to keep my existing ones as they would provide better light. If you want I can check up the prices here and the brand name...

The clock cost me 400.

MGA accessories just don't make sense. Too bloody expensive.

cheers,

zaphod

P.S - thanks to aZa for recommending Car Raunaq - they do good work.

Are there any foglamps which goes perfectly with the bumpers, I mean the lamps like in VERNA, ACCENT etc, they r just perfecttly blended with the bumper shapes..

PM hellcat, he has a nice set of foglamps that he purchased from JC road for the baleno. Guess it was 3k or something on the same lines.

I think even designation has the same set with him.

I doubt if something of the types you mentioned would be an exact fit on the baleno's bumper.

Spidy to use any other other kind of Fog lamps on the Baleno other than the MGA, you'll have to build a new front bumper or lets say modify the existing bumper with the help of a body fabricator.
And this is going to be expensive. Let me know if you want to get it done.

You can try something like this.

you can find replica's of MGA in market (they are available in delhi and cost something like 1500-2000)....yesterday only I saw a baleno white colour with xenons in headlamps as well as xenons in for lamps too...I was looking too god but one thing again made me laugh. A HMS sticker on rear windshield, which means our loving modifier...Nivit bhasin..The car was having a huge exhaust which means it is pimped by him

Sanjay dont even expect that bumper to last for a week in bangy. Am sure this kind of bumper will never survive our roads and killer speed breakers.

Question Fog Lamps for Baleno

Hi Friends,

I need some suggestions/pointers to purchase a set of fog lamps for my Baleno. According to the mechanic at a Maruti Service Centre, the stock set (hard to find) will set me back by Rs.5000/- or even more.

Please suggest me some grey market brands that are reliable and suits Baleno. I just want to give my partner a face lift!!

Thanks in advance!!

Cheers,
Dev

Thank you so much Samurai!! I didn't know that there was a thread already on this topic.

I will dig deep into these posts and try to get what I was looking for.

Cheers,
Dev

hi all, if you could get your hands on a pair of Hella FF50 or FF75, just do it. run it on H7 HID and you may do away with your OEM lo-beams all together

i cant comment about losing warranty though.

even with packaging and shipping via ebay to india it will not go above Rs. 5000 with the dollar rate falling.

in mumbai i tried my best to get the FF75, due to the big shipping cost on ebay. but i did find the ff50 in a shop in opera house, but not the ff75.

all the best.


EDIt:
the ones on desigNation's baleno, the hella micro, are a good option too.
