1. Yes for 130/110 it is a must. The normal holder will melt after a long drive. Good chance
2. Yes, since there is no "plug and play" interface for fog lamps, a separate wiring harness is needed with a separate switch.
3. Go for standard lights without any coating(yellow or blue).

Question

Thanks a lot TSK1979 for the reply.

Two more questions.

Is the price quoted for the lamp OK? Rs. 2.5K is inclusive of everything.
How much will ceramic holders cost? The accessories guy was quoting Rs. 150 per piece.

My previous set of fog lamps had water entering the casing all the time. I had two sets completley spolied during the rains.

Will HELLA fare better? Is it well sealed and water proof??

Thanks!

No idea about the fog lamps.
As for ceramic holders, get the complete Roots kit with Holders/Wiring/Relay for around 700rs

Not a mod, but I would advise posting it with breaks so that the SpamBots dont pick it up.

Say the ID is : turbolover@tbhp.com

Post it as turbolover(at)tbhp(dot)com

Default Need information on improving headlight vision

Hey guyz

I have a 2004 Baleno VXI.

I need to improve the headlights vision and also need a white beam instead of the standard yellow.

After going through various threads i narrowed down to this

Change the bulb to 100/90 and also fit it with relay and good holder

Now can anybody suggest the best brand or range for 100/90 bulb that gives out a white beam and has good life.
Also need suggestion on good brand of relay and holder.

Also if anybody could give the prices for the same then it would be of great help in bargaining.

I hope this is the best way out or if there is any other then please suggest except for HID Kit as it is too expensive.


Thanking You
Rohan

Hi guys. I know this is not a major thing to discuss about but can someone please explain as to what smoked head or tail lamps mean?? And i was cheking out a site wherein i saw blue optical film for head lamps and fogs. Is this only for the external look or is there any kind of improvement in the lighting by using the films?
