The Optra has light similar to the GTX i think. So for dim only one light comes up and for bright two bulbs burn. The bulbs are already 55W i think. So you'll be getting 110W output in bright which should very much be ok i think.

The free air subs as far as i know are available only in sony and pioneer. Not sure about polk audio but think they too have a free air. The sony and pioneer free airs are around 3.5k and are rated at 150w RMS approx.

Monty..congrats on the car and yeah black looks amazing !
But whats all this with the light upgrade...is that thn all tbhp cars that blind me with lights too bright/hi-beams ?..hehe not really sure if you plan to take her rallying at night but city lights are enough I think....on empty/twisty highways its understandable though.

take care dude. a very high power bulb can cause serious damage to your headlamp assembly. Maybe go for the Philips bulbs speed satya told. Dont go overboard anf fit two 110W in it!

You could go for the 80W ones for bulbs instead of the 50W stock. They wont need a relay I guess, but 100W will need relay and may void your warranty

100W would require relay and would void warranty. 80W should be good enough. Try getting phillips Rally/ or other reputed brand

Its not bright beams that blind, its the high beams. If you drive on dipper with properly aimed headlights, even very bright bulbs(130W) will not blind anybody. However on full beam even 60W can be blinding.

Because it is only marginally more than the 55/60W. Only if you go to 90W+ you need a relay. Most of the circuitry and fuses have that much tolerance built in. Headlights have 15A*2 fuse which translates to 180W*2 power at 12V. With 80W you will have 160*2W. So the stock circuitry is designed to take upto 90W bulbs.

Thanx guys i have decided to upgrade to 130/110 for headlights and 100 for Fogs with cutout and relay.. I wanted the number of Lumar anyone has it?? How much heat does Lumar cut out since V kool cuts out 94% and Ray barrier cuts out 95%.. getting Ray barrier at Rs.14000 incl of Sun/Moon Roof and incl of everything Labour etc. Vkool was 23000 but since i already had it on my NHC i am getting it at Rs.20000 and i found Ray barrier not so dark and i want dark tints so should i put normal dark tint over Ray barrier??

dude,
u seem to have got it all wrong.uyou cannot put the reagular 100/90 or 130/110w 2 filament bulb in your optra as its got separate headlights for high and low beams.
so u need to get separate bulbs for the high and low beam respectively.
the palio has similar headlights.
so try and talk to any palio owner who has upgraded his headlamps adn let us know.


BTW what di dthephilips guy say.???????
