GREAT and simply awesome. I would like my Zeus to have atlest one projector headlamp. Its necessary for the indian roads.

@yayati:
Please give the photographs from inside the santro when dark on a long straight road, so that we can really come to know what power it packs.

I would also like to have more information on the SWIFT HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY WITH THREEE PROJECTOR LAMPS.

Here are some hi-Res pics taken today !!!!

Hope all you like them !!!


Rest of the pics all of you can get in previous post on page 3 and 4 !!!

EDIT: I had a query for the visibility in rain with the projectors !!

Well i must say something about it because i faced the situation when it rained in night and i have to reach home at the same time !!

It was almost negligible to see road with these HID's !!!
the problem with the projector is that it scatters the light and having the low light color (8000K HID )it was like i have just turned the light for show off !!

Thanks for the comment !!



Projector headlights are normal lights with one distinct difference. There is a glass or heavy duty plastic sphere right in front of the light bulb. This serves the purpose of distributing the light evenly in front of the car creating a type of light horizon. When you get the projector lights, you will notice the light covering every square inch in front of your car, they are really nice to have, When the high beams come on, the "sphere" is moved slightly making the light horizon slightly higher.

hope you got my point !!! reflectors focus on only one particular area but projectors don't!

Why we get 3 times more light in projectors than the normal reflector light when we use the same HID's or bulbs in them !

Removing the shield will help, but at the cost of the oncoming traffic going nearly blind, as everyone knows how much trouble a normal 55/60 high beam causes, multiply it by 3.

comparatively it should disturb others as the light will scatter. straight beam will hurt you more than a scattering light,and in projectors u cannot the the tube hence it should hurt less than ordinary lights.
