I'm really dissatisfied with my Osram Night breakers. I understand they're H1s. Are there any better bulbs without a relay in the market?

Tell me about it! by the way, heres some advice for people going in for HIDs. Don't be too excited about visibility in the rains, it's going to suck! It rained today and for once I was glad I had underpowered high beams, the yellow light was the perfect hero in the situation, white light was a joke...

This is the only reason I imported 3000k HID bulbs for my car. 3000k is as yellow as it can get.

Nice! Where did you source them from? Also, I'm running 35w hids. Though the spread is good, the intensity at times is weak. I have seen some hids with awesome intensity. I can only assume they're using the 55w hids in their car. Know where I can get these bulbs? how well do they work in the angel eyes setup?

Jag, are the headlights on in the picture? If yes, then the left side headlight does not seem to be on. Or is it the reflection of the flash in the RH side headlight?

Looks good by the way.

No Vikram Sir I forgot to put it on while clicking the picture.. You are correct its the reflection of the flash on the right side headlight. I really thank you for the help and support you gave.

Thanks a lot once again.
