The h27 is another code for the '880' bulbs. I They are low watt(27w) bulbs. Hence the name.

These will not be commonly available here in India but you can fit another spec in your fog lamp if its absolutely crucial.

The good news is if your getting an HiLo HID for your Headlamps then you dont need anything more

BiXenons have both high and low beam. And a lot of high end cars in our market use them.

They cannot "ban" high beam xenons.

But the real matter is that you should not USE high beams in the city - xenons or not.

That is civic sense which most lack. I was only commenting about the part that said "it is not allowed"..

The cars you mentioned all run on Xenons but you would have never seen the Xenons light up on high beam that is because at high beam a seperate set of Halogens Lights up, and also Corolla Altis Top Model is available with HID Headlamps without the Projector Setup.

your wrong. only some cars have a separate halogen bulb for high beam. the altis is one of them. most of them have xenons for high beam also.

Do you have any thing to support this statement or is this purely hearsay?

HID-Illegal yes,Banned-No.

Here in chandigarh every 3rd or 4th car has HID's out which 70% have them both in fogs and headlamps.
I havent seen anyone being challaned for using HID's at least in chandigarh.

I have HID in my bike,i have been stopped by cops but never in chandigarh. everytime I walked away after cooking one story or another
