Hey dude, yeah I'll upload some pics today. I generally check tbhp on my blackberry so will log on from a comp today & upload.

The h1 phillips extreme seem to be out of stock so just waiting for them to arrive. Initially I installed phillips crystal 100 watts but read somewhere that it burns out the projectors.

I paid 9500 for the projector setup and 7500 for the bulbs plus 1500 for the high beams. Install was 1000. I did fish around and this seemed to be the best price. It doesn't matter where you get it from, there's only one importer for angel eyes in mumbai.

Also ensure that you get the projectors with the 3 led parking lights. Much better than the single bulb parking lights

Actually dude I'm talking about the parking light. The ones that switch on when you start the console lights. I did compare them and the ones I saw with a single parking light seemed to have a bulb not leds. It seems this model used cfl for the rings while I opted for the kit that had leds because it looked more edgy. If I'm not wrong, the other kit would probable have brighter rings as they even seemed thicker to the led rings on mine.

Nitin.. I've got a H1 in my foggies, H1 in my high beam and H4 in my low beam.. the fog lamps light up the roads like no other car, but the disadvantage is that it's so bright and covers so much area that it blinds oncoming traffic to quite a substantial degree..

I don't mind it blinding other people because they do the same to me with their high beams.. that said I switch on my fogs only when I see oncoming cars with high beams inside the city limits.

I have fixed the Philips kit and trust me, nothing comes close. I paid 8500 Rs per pair including installation.

it had, got it replaced for free...

Btw, though I've got Nightbreakers, compared to the HIDs, the full beam falls really short. Any solution besides getting HIDs in full beam too?

AFAIK, Fiesta runs H1/H7 for hi/lo (not in that order, not too sure which is which)

I've been using the Angel eyes kit for close to 2 months now. Got them installed mid-Feb.

I am using H1 HIDs 4300K on Low beam and Osram Nightbreakers on the High beam. Fog lamps are still stock.

Lately I've been having some issues with the HID wiring. The light starts flickering, esp when the engine is Idle. Dont want to take any risks with the wiring. Also the low beam is always ON. So was wondering if using the dipper a lot (esp on highways) would do any damage to the HIDs.

I also have another set of HIDs. I'd bought 2 sets from the US. But dropped the idea of using HIDs on the High beam. The 3-4 secs delay in lighting up the HIDs is an issue. But now I am thinking of shifting them to the Fogs.

I had bought some totally useless 4300K white light Fog lamp assembly from eBay. But clamping it is becoming a pain. So might as well avoid it.

Are projector (non-CFL) fog lamps for the Swift available in India ? And what about H3 HIDs ?
