Since majority of us do not know the law, specifically the traffic laws, the men in uniform take us for a ride and 99% of the time to avoid hassle we pay up and move on. Only if your friend had stood his ground and asked for a notification to that effect from the cop, h would have seen the reaction.

The fact that we don't stand up and question the cop and rather bribe or pay the fine, doesn't mean that what all the cops say is law or laid down by law.

An apt example is the amount of tint in the sunfilm. The cops have come out with various methods and even the court has chipped in, but....

Today, I consulted a lawyer friend of mine who specialises in road accident & traffic violations cases; he said that there is no specific law banning the xenons/HIDs. It is the same, like the Gujarat police penalises cars that don't have a yellow dot sticker in the middle of their right side HL. Now there is no law on this and can be actually contested in a court of law. But does somebody do this? No, and hence it is assumed as law..

Not sure an answer after 1 month will help you or not. But i got an h27 HID for my Hyundai Verna fog lamp ( Raylux brand 6500 rs. i think you should get it for cheaper) in Bangalore. It is an Indian brand so should be easily available, though in Verna the glare is more because of the stretched fog lamps, in case of accent i think it should be better. Also i think Raylux comes only in 6000k and 8000k.

What is the use of a foglamp in 6000k and 8000k? All it will do in a real fog is light up the fog and not the road.

Re: banning HIDs, pure heresay. If they have been banned, Toyota cannot sell the Altis in that state. It's just cops cooking up BS to fleece money from you.

Default Philips HID Kit.

Hi Everyone,

I've just come across the Philips HID kit available on ebay:

eBay India: Philips HID/Xenon CONVERSION KIT for INNOVA HEADLIGHTS (item 150416488226 end time 23-Mar-2010 10:48:12 IST)

Experts: Please suggest your views before I decide to make a purchase.
  • Would these lights be effective for an Innova?
  • Would these be harmful or less effective as they do not come with projectors?
  • Any idea where I may obtain the same in Bangalore, someone who specializes in installing these?
  • Would it be easy to obtain replacement lamps, if they fail easily?
Thanks in advance,
