thanks mate.will do a search @ manveets posts to get to know more about his HID installation and related issues.
and so you wouldn't recommend 55W HIDs ? cause i have installed a 55W HID H4 on my Karizma, and it working and illuminating great, guess 35W wont provide that much illumination, but what the heck , there still will be 2 of them ..
hmm , thanks again ..

Hi All,

i would like to add fog lamp to my 98 Zen. AFAIK there is no factory provision for fitting the front fog on Zen MH410 model. Any idea how can this can be achieved? Should I be fitting the fog lams like one present in rally cars which gives racy look? I would love to retain the current look of the car. Any idea how to fit a not so big fog lamp in Zen.?

Thank you

35w will be fine too.. as per my experience i didnt see a major difference my friend is using 55w! I have 35w hids in my car and bike, The bike has a bigger and better focus hence you feel its brighter.Anyways its your personal decision upon the wattage.

cheers

Default HELP! reg hid for fabia.

Hi friends trying to get the HID kit for my fabia with projector headlamp. Went and enquired in the market and got to know that the philips would cost me for about 18000/- and there is another make that dealer suggested its called P4 HID XENON. Now it is not the bulb type am talking about but its the name of the company. It cost for around 15000/-.
I am told by the dealer that the philips kit has slightly more bluish tinge even in 6000k compared to P4 HID Xenon which more on the white side and was told that its better then philips. Which of these will be better one.

Anyone here using them or any has tried both of them for demo, would be really helpful to get the info on this.

Which one of these will be the best which helps more in visibility in the night?

Is it advisiable to fix it on the fog lamps?

Any suggestion would be really thankful.

Thankyou.

100/90 is okay for the Swift. But Would it burn out the head light Assembly if i were to put a 100/130 Halogen in a Swift or An Innova ?

I enquired about lamp upgrade for my Swift on JC road.
they quoted 1200 for Phillips rally with ceramic holders etc, and relays.
Is that correct? When I saw the wiring and relays, it gave me an impression that it is fake.

Any pointers on how to identify fakes, where to get genuine stuff and approximate price?

thanks.

IMHO stay away from JC road. Get it done at MASS. They will do a better and clean job. There is a bosch wiring kit available which comes with holders.The total cost should come around 900-1000 rs including labour.

Default More powerful headlamps for my swift

Hi All,
I have always felt that my Swift's head lamps are not powerful enough. Can i modify the light with a more powerful bulb? Which one be the appropriate one? What would be the price?

In Santro you cant close the cover of the headlamp assembly unit unless you cut the wiring kit and reroute it.

Whats your current light setup?

Sold it. Had 90/100's. So no pix

The holders are a bit bulky and hence wont go through OE plumbing area and hence you need to take it in via the cover opening.
