I can vouch for that!!

I've spent close to 50 grand till now, in less than a month. Considering that I've not even thought about ICE till now. What else can I say ?

Sanyam in your HL pics you have put xenon in the high beam also. I would suggest to put a yellow color bulb (or simply halogens) as it will help in improving visibility.

I guess when you are on Low Beam HIDs, there aint much need for the HIDs on Fogs. In fact vikram_d told me I might as well switch off the fogs.

The CFL projector setup is more towards bling rides. Lets see how the Fog setup I've ordered fares

Yup, they are around the 4kg mark, I think he got confused with the weight of the 16" wheel, that weighs around 7 kgs a piece IIRC.

The 16" rim weighs somewhere around 4.8-5kgs ,the 5 spoke design.
The 8 and 10 spoke designs are heavier.

Can anyone share for how much does the Carbon Fibre GT Wing cost for Swift.

And what is the cost of the normal ones.

I agree it is bling but that bling is not worth since you have to wait for the High beam to switch on as xenon takes time to lit in the first place. And when compared with Halogens in terms of visibility it is considered a day or night. And our streets of india are very poorly lit...

Actually these are very valid points LBM.

Also I am not sure of the feasibility of using the "pass" function with Xenons. 3000K wont solve the purpose if it takes time to light up. Hence even I am planning to stick with Osram Night Breakers for the High-beams. Though I did order 4 bulbs/ballasts from the US.
