thanks in advance!
Not sure about Bangalore costs, but it definitely ain't cheaper in Chennai when compared to places like Mumbai and Delhi.

I enquired a couple of places in Chennai, I got rates as steep as 22k just for the headlights. HIDs - not sure of the quality available here. Frankly speaking, Chennai is not a place for modifications. 99.95% of the cars run here as stock.

Send a PM to blueraven316. He should get you a good deal.

I bought the HIDs over eBay. Cost me 11500 for 4 bulbs/ballasts which included 5k customs.

blueraven aka Satya is from Bangalore. I bought the HIDs from eBay US. Got it delivered at a friend's place and he brought it to India. Though he had to pay 5k customs in Cochin airport.

I am not sure of the eBay UAE prices. Please share the link if you have.

Guess the lights are not getting sufficient power supply. Did you talk to the installer regarding the same ?

The High beam will be brighter,the low beam just spreads more.Try pulling the dipper level halfway there is a point where both the lights get activated.High and low.They both switched on together (civic style) will give you an idea how it helps in visibility.Look for a good electrician and who can play around a little and make both of lights work simultaneously at high beam like this.

Check this for some idea.

And I guess it takes some time to get used to the HIDs. Atleast I had some problems in the 1st couple of days. But now its absolute bliss

Just waiting to install the 4300K Fog lamps. But no time nowadays :(

Actually, I dont want to do that. Reason being, the High Beam will just kill the HIDs with all their yellow light. BTW I've installed the 4300k Autogauge HIDs in the Low, 100w Phillips in the Highbeam, Relay and Hooked up the 3 Leds on the Angel Eyes. Total cost : 19000

HIDs - 7500
3 LED Angel Eyes - 9500
Phillips H1 100w - 500
Relay wiring blah blah blah - 1500

Good deal IMO, just need to some how get the level better... also, I hate the __/ __/ cut offs...

The Fog lamps are not DIY. It has 4300K bulbs and a 10000K parking LED light. So some complex wiring is involved, since there is a toggle switch too. Guess it will take another 2 weeks for the install.

Here is the pic of the Fog lamp.
