@Vikram please do not use 100W h1 in the projector it might burn the assembly as the heat emission is more than 55w which comes default....

According to me the LBM setup is the best.....looks cool as well as the vision is good as well....but i will be upgrading High beam with HID (4300K) soon so will be having 3 set of HID ... what i am planning is to change the bulbs of the other 2 HID to 4300K as now it is 6000K.

4300K is not white light its kind of yelloooo... so the vision would be more, clear and bright.

The only issue i m getting is that i have to source it as 4300K is not available in India.

After that no body cannot stand in front of his car. Three xenons that to 4300k. Will give ultimate visibility for any conditions.

4300k is direct OEM specification which Philips/Hella etc directly supply to manufacturers. There's a better chance of finding it in Europe/Singapore than in the East.

Will work on any currently installed HID system. Just plug & play! The bulbs use universal AMP connector, please see pictures below.
Does that mean it wont come with the kit?

For me two pairs will be sufficient. One pair for each of the beams.

thanks for discussing all the issue here guys, this thread has given me a proper insight into what actually hids are what xenon bulbs are and proper knowledge of having a kit, KUDOS to TeamBhp for the same! and helped me understand the following:

the HIDs the 4000K to 10,000k funda i mean the way its measured and the color emitted,

the sizes of bulbs H1 being the smallest and like wise the H8 highest if i have understood correctly,

the fact that the xenons have poor visibility during the rainy season and halogen being replaced in LBmji's car for the highbeams.

and one thing for sure one need a proper person to set the lighting right and need a good amount of knowledge for the HID setups.

these HID reflectors cost a lot and needs the vitamin M to be set aside for a little tweaking if required.

and finally the 4100K-4300K illumination light is the best of the lot!

now i am going to get a set of hellas round ones and put them in the place of the fog lamps and be happy with the stock reflectors with 130/100W lighting i have! this has changed my decision and thoughts and has indeed saved a lot of vitamins for me thanks once again for all the contributions made by all the people involved. my vote is out of the options and i say i am happy with what i already have!

disclaimer:no offenses meant, and please correct me if i am wrong and there are pure personal thoughts and opinions others interested are most welcome to try this!

The best of the lot is 3000k bulbs but very rare to come by. 4300k is next best.
