  1. No Idea!
  2. HID's are mostly available in 35w as well as 50w. I had 35w H4 HID's for the headlamps in my SX4 till yesterday. I now got the 50w version of HID's. Both are from the same brand P4. I noticed say 10% more light from the 50W kit over the 35W one. I did the upgrade by paying 2k (after using the 35w kit for 6 months) to my P4 distributor who more than willingly did the swap for me.
  3. Swift like the SX4 takes H8 bulbs for the fogs. I also got 35W H8 HID kit for the fog lamps of my SX4. I asked for the 50W variant but i was told that P4 makes 50W only in case of H4 kits and frankly 50w for the tiny fogs of the SX4 and the Swift is an overkill.
Cheers

Hey prince,
Thanks for the reply.

I've ordered 2 sets of HIDs from eBay. H1 4300K. The US seller dint have 3000K bulbs. And I cant wait for a Hong Kong seller for the same.

Both the ballast and the HIDs are rated 50w. So lets see how they work out.

Still looking for a perfect solution for the Fog lamps.

Once the HID's are in, you will not need to use the fog lamps at all.

Yeah but how about driving with just the CFL rings on the angel eyes and powerful Fogs ? Bling bling city drives!

Check this video. Looks very neat minus the strobes.

@Fountainheader - Are you planning to do something like this?
