I dont think so Aftermarket projector headlights are available for Hyundau Verna,may be you can try doing a DIY by buying some after market projectors from cars like skoda's and fix it in the verna headlamp with HIDs its worth taking the pains

i had seen a verna before but not able to recognize where?? that was the one u need for sure (projector headlight )

The problem is that verna is bein manufactured by different names in different countries !

In some place it's EXCEL, ACCENT or verna !!

for the first pic. Accent Turbo Hybrid we can't use it because of the blunt cut in the side fenders of Verna.

But 2nd n 3rd one really look good. Still they are just close pic of headlights. We need to see how it looks on Verna.

Please provide Verna pic, with such angel lights if possible.

Guys

On Hyundai Forums a guy from Mexico called Rondy has done this and posted on the DIY section. Trouble is getting the projectors etc in India.

If somebody finds a readymade option that'll be cooool

I am willing to buy one

D2S projectors are the ones which have high and low beam in one.

The one's used in the santro (the link us given above in the starting of the thread)

Does anyone have info about where to get projector headlamps for Verna? Is there any ready made one available or custom made ones available from any modifier? I have read about DIY project in Hyundai-forum and for other cars in team-bhp, but wanted to check if it is available otherwise before embarking on the same. Also let me know if someone has done a DIY for Verna as such.

No, D2S does not mean it has both high beam and low beam in one.

To quote Wikipedia,

Quote:
Current-production burner categories are D1S, D1R, D2S, D2R, D3S, D3R, D4S, and D4R. The D stands for discharge, and the number is the type designator. The final letter describes the outer shield. The arc within an HID headlamp bulb generates considerable short-wave ultraviolet (UV) light, but none of it escapes the bulb, for a UV-absorbing hard glass shield is incorporated around the bulb's arc tube. This is important to prevent degradation of UV-sensitive components and materials in headlamps, such as polycarbonate lenses and reflector hardcoats. "S" burners — D1S, D2S, D3S, and D4S — have a plain glass shield and are primarily used in projector-type optics. "R" burners — D1R, D2R, D3R, and D4R — are designed for use in reflector-type headlamp optics. They have an opaque mask covering specific portions of the shield, which facilitates the optical creation of the light/dark boundary (cutoff) near the top of a low-beam light distribution. Automotive HID burners do emit considerable near-UV light, despite the shield.
I would suggest you don't try to put HIDs into your reflector lamps, even if they are the DxR bulb - even though the bulb is designed for reflector lamps, the reflectors need to be designed for HIDs as their light pattern is entirely different compared to halogen lamps.

You are looking for what is known as a bixenon projector setup. There are two options for getting projectors on a Verna.

1) Find an aftermarket (possibly crap) replacement.
2) Retrofit projectors into your headlamp.

For the latter, high-intensity.org is a good resource.

So to say , bixenons are the choice of replacement if you headlamps are currently running H4 halogen bulbs which are two filaments , one for hih beam and one for low beam.

Retrofitters would also recommend you for a bixenon setup if your current headlamp assembly doesnt permit the installation of two seperate projectors for high and low beams ( which incidently would also increase the cost of the retrofit). Also note that projector lamp setups are available even for halogen bulbs but the projectors for HIDs are the ones we are discussing now.

Hellstar and ImmortalZ , the quoted message you guys replied to was 5 months old.

Hellstar i know that you have been looking for projector headlamps for verna, i saw your post in high-intensity.org or was that a different person ?

Between - I was searching throug ebay and came accross this
BMW Hid Bi-xenon Projector Angel Eye Light Conversion - eBay (item 140279421038 end time Nov-12-08 23:55:41 PST)
They mention that 'This will work in any Car/Bike or anything that has a reflector headlight at the moment'. Anyone tried out similar things?
