i have modified my crystal visions. when i need extra lights i put on both the filaments.50+60. so 110watts. i do intend to use it occasionally when i need more light since dont know how long the bulb can take both its filament running. there was no problem in carrying out the mod as a had cutout kit already installed and a spare one which i have modified for this particular requirement. next will be to have a set of headlights in place of fog lights since reliability of this projest is unknown....

Default The ground lead is gong to blow.

Dear GIGY neither the filaments nor the glass is going to crack but you will end up with a bulb with the ground lead gone bust resulting in wasted effort. I tried this when I was much younger but came out much wiser. In the Junkindica you can still do this by pulling the headlight flasher lever towards you but the ground lead(-ve) inside the bulb will last a very short duration. By the way I have 130/100 philips rallye bulbs in the Junkindica with cut-outs and the 130 high beam is more than enough to light up the road. Bye and wear your seatbelts.

I have philips blue vision 90/100 on my swif and am very much satisfied with the lighting in city traffic though I have not tried it on the highways during night time. Though called blue vision, I don't see it as blueish as in some of the other cars(don't know if they are using bluevision or something else). Or... probably, mine is not original bluevision.

I never knew about upgrading the wires etc. I put Sylvania White 100/90W headlights and changed them myself. They are ok...but i dont know if putting them on would burn the wires or somethibng. I have used them for 2 months. Please sonmeone let me know if putting wires/relay is absolutely if i continue to use the 100/90W ones. Till then i would drive w/o the headlamps :-)

Hi All,
I own an Accent CRDi car. I am looking for replacing my HeadLights.
I also drive at nights (highways), but not very frequent (say once in a month)... so looking for better visibility + l'll bit of style...
read thru the posts and narrowed down my options to
a) Philips Vision Plus
b) Philips Blue Vision 100 / 90

So here are my questions?
1. How much does each option cost? (In Bangalore)
2. Does it null the warrenty if I go for option (b) ==> Philips Blue Vision?
3. Philips Blue Vision, is it blue or white ? And how is its visibility when compared to Philips Vision Plus?
4. Philips Blue Vision ==> is it legal? ( I read somewhere saying that its not legal!!)
5. There is a pair of lights down to headlights (I am not sure what its called). Is there an option to replace that too?

regards,
ant.

Regarding the Phillips Blue Vision 100/90
1. HOw much? Around Rs.750-800 without the parking bulbs (inc.parking -Rs.950-1000)
2. No it will not null the warranty.
3. ITs not Blue, its not White, its between the standard Yellow lights we get oem and the white lights ppl use giving a mix of good visibility + good looks.
4. Yea, its legal, its just a tone whiter than the yellow standard bulbs.
5. U talking of the parking bulbs is it? if yes, that can also be changed with philips blue vision parking bulbs.

Blue only looks good. It does absolutely nothing for better visibility and in fact gives lesser visibility than yellow or white bulbs of the same wattage.

Boomshiva, like many many others here, u are also mislead to think that the bluevision bulbs are actually blue. They are NOT!

again i repeat, they are just between the Yellow stock light and WHITE light. its neither totally white, nor totally yellow. and it has great visibility, no problems in the night wether in rain or whatever...

People I am in for an install of the Philips Head Lights over the weekend. Have a couple of queries,any help is really appreciated.

Have read this thread over and over and still in a dilemma if I should install a Philips Blue Vision 100/90 or Philips Crystal Vision Halogen 60/55W.

I kinda do quite a few long drives and prefer having real powerful headlights while driving in the night . Suggestions please.

hey Vikram thanks for the reply. I want bright lights and hence will stick to what you say. I will get the regular Philips 100/90 or even higher with a ceramic holder and relay. I dont see any kind of funda if the Crystal vision doesnt help much on the highways.

BTW did u get your FFE done from Psycho??? I did PM you on that.
Cheers mate
