Bottle, how much did you pay for the H7 Osram Nightbreakers? Since it's been a while you've been using them, how do you compare the performance?

Not worth the price I guess, the light was slightly brigher, more white and the beam more focussed but visibility was still poor on highways where there are no street light and lorry drivers and every other moving object has 100w or more bulbs

Paid about 3k for 4 bulbs after 2% for using credit card

Well, you can't get much better illumination than that for a stock 55/60 W lamp without any modifications.

The only other option is to move to 90/100 W (which I believe is illegal) with a relay and all that. Otherwise, one can customise projectors like iraghava. I asked about Nightbreakers because I am interested in a plug-and-play solution.

Default Re: Palio Stile Headlamps

Sorry to bump in. I never knew Palios head lights are this expensive. By this, I understand that we have to be very careful dealing with them. I own a Palio SDX. I felt that the light is no where close to being effective on the highways.

What are my options if I would want lighting like on my Maruti 800 where I have put a cut outer and 11/130W philips bulbs.
