the car looks hot, how much did you pay for the xenons , but how is it in driving .. cause there is huge difference when there are cars coming your way and the light from their cars will diffuse the white beam.. atleast that's what i heard..

The kit was put up for sale by a fellow TBhpian. I got it for 7K.

During driving, it is almost the same as normal halogen lamps, if not better. If another jerk comes at u at high-beam, u'll face the same issues as with the normal halogen lamps (not able see clearly, etc, etc, etc). But if the opposing traffic has low-beam or if there is no opposing traffic, I feel that the Xenons do a better job than the halogens.

No sir.. I dont face any issues with the vision from the inside (please refer to my previous post). For good vision, choose a Xenon bulb within the 4000K-6000K color range. The higher you go, the brighter it would look from the outside, but the worse the vision will be from the inside. I believe this is what even Rahul (mclaren) was saying. If your buddy want better vision, ask him to get 6000K bulbs.

About the fogs, even I have "narva white" H3 bulbs that I picked up from JC Road. It used to look white when compared to the halogen bulbs. But when compared to the Xenons, it looks yellow (as seen from the pic).

Default Some minor upgrades...

Finally, some decent upgrades on the Baleno that I can actually post over here. I got my brother to upgrade the alloys and change the tyres from the stock ones.
Stock - 165/80 R13
New - 195/60 R14

Alloys - HRS
Tyres - Continental Premium Contact2

Special thanks to Nikhilb2008 for some tyre 'consulting'!
