Phamily_wale_aadmi..I use Osram 80/100 they're pretty good, both for city AND the highways. You need to use an aftermarket relay, thats all. No need to worry about the reflectors unless you use 100/110 and above.

Coming back to the main topic, when are you installing ICE?

Time to get back to the conversation.

Skid plates have been pending and by the current look of things - will remain that way for some time to come - no time to drop the car for two days at Motorcraft/Raj Kapoor noida.
I'm running 130/100 phillips. no problems yet.
Skid plates for which part? The undercarriage of the swift is most vulnerable ahead of the front wheels(radiator and intercooler). Behind them, there is just the exhaust pipe that needs protection.

its the front overhang that needs to be be worried about.
I'm not sure why you think a skid plate will help. maybe pics of what you intend to protect will help us in getting an idea.

Has anyone gotten skid plates on their sedan/hatchback.
Hey fellows, I am in the same situation. Need to get skid plates installed in my Esteem ASAP. Any help/information would be highly appreciated. The quotes I've received from Performance Auto, Noida are:
1. Sump Guard - 11K (Aluminium)
2. Fuel tank guard - 3K

I too am tuned in especially for headlamps and skid plate,

First started using OEM lamps, then moved straight to 130/100, awesome performance for night driving, during its reign I did, Pune Ratnagiri, Pune Murud, Pune Hyd 4 times with amazing performance. Now after 4 years, they are buried and I am on Philips Xtremepower, main disadvantage for me is the frazzled lens (zen 2003), all o you are lucky to have clear lens.

Also smaller fogs really dont work and I have seen a skoda with HID and otherwise great looking fog lamps go bust near Tanda (enroute Nainitall), they ended up following my puny i 10, the fog was worth scampering out of the car and feeling the road by hand. I was on 130/100 Philips Rally, with a lil cautious patience it was easy.

Please help with some latest high powered bulbs that fit frazzled lens for a zen.
