A pair of hella 700ff (spot beam) is around 5500/-.

A pair of neo 1010 (driving beam) is around 850~900/-.

But at above price the Neo 1010 are VFM product.

No worries if you break them or if they get stolen.

Just get a Pair of Phillips 100W H3 bulbs.

I have just installed them on my Xenon XT.

cost
  • 1 pair Neo 1010 850/-
  • 1 Minda Headlight relay 200/-
  • 5mm wire 90/-
  • switch 25/-
  • clips 15/-
  • labor 150/-
some pics.

Amazing throw if you use the right king of wiring harness with proper cut-outs.
You can check it out here.
A fresh question to a quiet old post - How does a wiring harness or cutout improve the throw of light?

Thanks

I read somewhere that the aux lights should be placed at par with the headlights or below it. Other wise it's considered as illaegal. In this case, Rayzer is clearly illegal right? Is it wise to spend a 25K on such a thing?

Also doesn't the beam hurt other vehicles drivers, with the same seating position?

Cut out / relay is NOT to improve lighting. It is rather used as a safety measure to prevent the wires / switches burning out due to the extra power withdrawal! You can think of this as a "fuse" which prevents short circuits etc!

Hey guys, I got a pair of Neolite 1010 lights installed on my Waggie.

The installation was a bit of a pain, as the Waggie doesn't come with a metal bar behind the front bumper.

Had to resort to some old school welding and tinkering to create a custom bracket, welded to the chassis.

Here are some install pics, sorry for the poor quality, they were clicked in my non - autofocus phone camera:

As you can see there is no metal bar behind the bumper to fix a bracket to in the Waggie.

So this is what I came up with.

Auxiliary Lamps-imag0085.jpg

Yep, even I think its very crude!


The end result

And once the installation is complete.

Hi All
I had fitted a pair of Lightforce lights on my unc's scorpio. Specifically
Pros
  1. Straight forward install on the nudge bar
  2. Great throw of light

Cons
  1. You need to adjust it a couple of times to get the right angle
  2. Its prone to theft, though if you weld it, it makes it difficult
  3. Lightforce doesnt come with any covers

Hope this helps.

Hi Speed.Demon,

I have also installed Hella 700FF using a L shaped clamp. Could you please let us know if the light installed in your car vibrated during rough patch of road.

Thanks.

Fixed the Comet 500's set on my Figo 1.2. Out come was satisfactory regarding brightness as well as looks.

The clamp was the problem as I had no clue where to fix them. The bumper was removed and the front beam already had few holes out of which two were made big to fix the clamp. When looked from the front, the clamps come out of the slat just above the number plate.
Wiring and relay fixed with a switch right behind the steering wheel.

Changed the bulbs to 100w as well which made a huge difference since otherwise the difference between the aux and the main headlamps was hardly any.

Overall good work from Autoshop, Koramangla except the clamp work took ages.

Attaching pics of the front beam and the lights .

Sorry for the ridiculously long delay in seeing your post.

No vibrations noticed yet while driving. Perhaps because I slow down like hell whenever I spot a big pothole.

My car also joined the Neolite bandwagon recently:

I was evaluating different options and decided on neolite because it was true VFM. I spent almost 2 weeks trying to find a good place to get them fixed (). I did bug Condor a lot too, thank you for your patience), but could not find any place at Bangalore - the only place I was comfortable with quoted INR 1500 for the installation (Relay, switches etc at actuals.
A trip to Kerala was on the cards, so I decided to get the lights fixed from my home town.
After reaching home, I took the car to my trusted mechs place to get his opinion about fixing the driving lights - he guided me to the correct people and we fixed the driving lights. I took the car to a lathe shop and got the bumper removed there. The guys at lathe shop took the measurements for making the L clamps and spot welded the clamps on the metal beam behind the front bumper.

The electrical guy then came and did the initial part of wiring and we fixed the bumper back. After that, I took the car to the electrical shop (a stone’s throw away from the lathe shop) and there we worked on the wiring. The guy was a real pro, and did a very good and neat job - it took him almost 3 hours to complete the job. The switch was placed neatly inside the cubby hole on the left side near the steering (Just below the left side AC vent, where the higher models have switches for headlight beam adjustment etc).

The materials used:

Finolex 5mm automotive grade wire - 7 mtrs
Sleeve for covering the wire - 7 mtrs
Relay (PNP make) - 1
Blade type fuse holder with 30A fuse (Roots make) - 1
Piano switch (heavy duty) - 1
Spade connectors
Insulation tape

Total labor cost - 200 for removing and remounting the bumper, 150 for lathe work, 200 for electrical work.

Unfortunately, I could not take any wip pictures other than just the pics after removing the bumper.

Verdict: The light throw is good. Now I can see road even if the oncoming traffic do not dim their headlights. I used the light while driving back from Kerala and the early morning drive (started at 4 am) was much easier.

The Final Look:

I fitted aux lamps on my Figo couple of months back, just got around to writing about it

Please see this thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...e-my-figo.html (May the force be with Chameli - Lightforce on my Figo) for more details.

Rallye 3003 compacts on my Swift. Rallye 3003 Compact shares the same optics as that of the Rallye 4000 Compact, and it packs a nice punch eventhough its small. If you're looking for one of these and don't want metal build quality of 4000 compacts choose these instead.

Clamps with gusset welding to cut down the vibes. The yellow primer has been painted over with matt black spray paint. Anyway its hidden.

From the front. The 3003 Compact imho is appropriate for this car. The larger 3003 will look good on an SUV.

Close up of the lamp and clear lens optics. Bulb is H1 55W Osram Nightbreaker Plus.

Low beam

High beam + Rallye 30003 compacts

I don't feel the need to upgrade the headlamp or Hellas to 90/100W and 100W respectively. With Osram Nightbreakers in all the lamps i find the illumination enough.

Swift and my Ritz's especially, it looks like they are made to damage the radiator on the first instance of impact. i did a detail inspection when i was fitting the light myself. The cross member is hardly 250 grams worth or crap metal.
