Question Where to buy Osram Night Breakers ?!?

Its been like 3-4 months I have been trying to source a Osram Night Breaker 90/100 H4 for my Aveo , I have travelled the whole city , but have not found even a single shop that sells them and are Genuine .
Its become a bother now as I travel a lot on highways and the bulbs that I currently use (Osram 60/55 H4) prove very inadequate in the dark.

Please help me out guys .
I even tried eBay but in vain .
I will like if anyone here knows anybody who sells them / or anyone who sells them and can courier it to me here in my city (Amritsar)
or even better if anyone can guide me to a shop nearby where I can buy them

Thanks in Advance !
Rahul

I dont know about night breaker,but you could try the Philips xtreme vision.They are very good and at par with night breaker.But you will find them mostly in 55/60W and not 90/100W

Osran Night Breaker doesn't come in a 90/100 version, they're 55/60 only, promising 90% more light.

Why do you want to go for nightbreakers specifically? Why not Phillps rally 100/90 or Halonix 100/90?

I think 100/90 will haze the outer casing ..
as for any other bulbs you recommend please tell me where to buy/order them from , as there is no shop in amritsar where I will be able to purchase a good set of bulbs for my car !

Osram Night Breakers could be disappointing (I've seen reviews here on team-bhp where people have tried them and found marginal/no improvement in lighting).

Go for 100/90 with a relay instead.

I've recently switched to Philips Xtreme Power 80%+ 55/60W (from the OE Philips 55/60W bulbs) and find a marked improvement in visibility in comparison to the previous bulbs. Am quite satisfied with it, and would suggest you try them before switching to 90/100W bulbs - which have their own disadvantages, apart from being illegal.

I use the Osram silverstar which are pretty much bang for the buck.

Along with that, wearing night glasses (of good quality) really helps. because the road is much easier to see if oncoming vehicles' glare is cut out.

Incase you know anyone in Bangalore, there is a shop (Osram autorized dealers), which I can recommend. It is located next to Leela Palace Hotel, on the same side

Instead of Osram NB, gor for Phillips Xtreme power or Diamondvision. I am using Xtreme power and have used 100/90 halogen in past, but Xtreme power with 60/55W is a great upgrade and you don't need to change the wiring, the light through is amazing and bright. I heard Diamondvision is the best Phillips has in 60/55W H4 range with 4300 Kelvin.

I recently picked up a pair of Diamondvision H4 60/55 W for Rs 1105 from Chennai.

I would also suggest you to take a look at XtremeVision which claims 100% more light.
