a set of xenon lamps shud cost u around 20-25 k excluding duties.ot requires very high voltage ,so u need to get the entire kit.
hella also has micro DE xenon fog lamps,which are similar to the projector fog lamps on the lancer

Hi Revtech,

I wouldnt suggest you put real xenons in your lancer because they just cost way to must and are not really worth it IMO.

Check out the link Aalaap has provided, there is a lot of useful info and debating in there.

cheers

ya pal u get these fake HID kits nd it has am additional blue glass cover on the bulb my dealer is giving me the glasses 4 abt 800rs do let me know if ue intrested.
Wat u have to do is add them onto your original yellow bulb for a whiteish light nd onto ur white bulbs(the bulbs tat come with the blue glasses instead of clear glasses) for a blueish tinge.

Hey Revvtech,

You are asking for EXACTLY the same thing as Aalaap wanted,
did you check out the TBHP Bright White Headlight (with a hint of blue) Thread or not?

cheers

ps - simply put, you just want to install a headlamp relay, and some new "white" H4 bulbs.. preferably 100/90watts. Choosing good bulbs is important. Read the link i have provided.

Hey,
Well Xenons are not bad for the car at all.All u have to be sure bout is fittings and fakes.Infact they aint expensive either.I have a few on my friends Lancers.Original HID kits.It costs around 16K.If u even want the BMW ones,u can get that for the same price.Blue,black,white bangled lights.

The Mondeo has Xenons.

If you notice carefully, the white light (fake ones) hurt the eye when u look at them. Whereas Xenons dont hit the eye. Have looked directly into the eye of a Mondeo and a 360 and didnt have to blink even once.
