Why not try to source one from the zen/santro or the sort.I think the zen one is more robust.
The brackets/adaptors can be fabricated by a welder.
just a thought.
One of the BHP ians resolved this issue in his M800 by replacing the support with a different cars'. Unfortunately, he does not remember the make.

I'm going to try this with an Omni's support.

Fabricating the bracket/adapters will be the last option as no one is willing to do it.

Thanks,
Jose.

You can check eBay for suitable tachos. Remember to check that the tacho is suitable for 3 cylinder cars.

I'd consider my self lucky to get this tacho as I did not find any suitable to my liking or some were really expensive. The ones that were affordable had smaller dials or of unheard brand.

Thanks,
Jose.

Hi Alok,

I have installed a heater unit in my car about 2 years back,
If you want a very good setup, be prepared to take the engine out, so that you get optimum results.

Hi Everyone,

yesterday one of my friend was suggesting me X-treme power from philips for my M800 as visibility during night and rainy days is too adequate.

I currently have 90/100 H4 Halogens, when i checked their site X-treme power is only 60/55, does it still provide more light than mine ?

philips website:
X-treme Power: Maximum performance

If any one has installed, please provide your feedback, thanks.

^^ john, I have these on my car (alto). These are whiter compared to stock bulbs & hence appear brighter. Also their throw is more, but the one sore point is that they are not good enough in rains.
In fact, my experience was much better with the stock bulbs in rains.

hi john,
the only difference is that of color and hence wavelength,whiter lights feel brighter and more powerful because they spread more than stock ones,BUT they only spread more not PENETRATE MORE!! they are bad in fog and rain and especially when you have some other car with stock yellow lights coming from front you'll have your white lights crushed!!i have got philips crystal vision in mine,they definitely make the car look hotter,but u got to strain your eyes..best solution for looks with performance is HIDs.

There is a place called Retro rides in Gurgaon (so called HID specialists)who quoted 12K for Philips HID set with projectors.They make a big hole in the reflector and bolt the projector assembly to the back of the headlight unit.

HID lamps w/o projector in a normal reflector headlamp assembly scatter the light even more, so much so, that while going through a street, you can make out the face of someone standing on the second floor, and at the same time have difficulty in seeing an object more than 20 metres away.

The cost of projectors, coupled with the drilling process, and non availability of Gyro has effectively stagnated the thought process.

@drjumbo, @blackfire_9, @JustCause thanks for your reply.

I was about to purchase Philips Xtreme power, now that i know how it works in rainy nights, i better avoid it. Regarding HIDs, i dont want to spend so much for my M800.

I was wondering, how about upgrading to 100/130 Halogens itself ?
how much do they cost and are they available in H4 size for M800 ?
Will they be sufficient during Rainy Nights?
Also what will be the impact on battery?

its the projectors that are so expensive.moreover drilling holes and stuff would not be acceptable for all,JUST a HID kit is not that expensive,furthermore there are various power ranges in hid also like 8000k 10000k etc and there is certain permitted range by law,dont exactly know but i guess its 7000k or max 8000k,and xenos 10000k were for around 5000 bucks,that means the permitted range would be cheaper,,

Thanks for the response justcause, & it seems like a decent price for the HID kit + projector. One can try to reduce the price a bit though. Anyways, do you have any first hand experience or know of anybody who has gotten this job done from them? Do you have any plans of getting this done in your car?

Drive safe.
