Hey guys,

Just got my headlamp bulbs changed.

Put in Philips Rally 100/90 normal yellow lamp bulbs with roots relay and ceramic holder kit.

Total cost - 1000/- incl. labour.

Place done- "Choksi Motors" at Milan Subway, Mumbai

Pic of the headlight bulb packet. (Could not get the pic of the roots packets as they had thrown it already.

Attachment 23477

Review - Light throw is excellent, its got much better brightness and spread than the stock headlamps and is very very effective for night driving. Gives me more confidence now. .

Would definitly recommend it to others.

Hey Funky, in which did you do that? I have recently put in those H4 90/100 (white types) in my old esteem but light quality is even less than the original yellow bulbs. They are not Philips but some Japanese brand. What should i do to fix the issue? Do i need to put a relay?

Auto Lighting thread : Post all queries about automobile lighting here-230620081851.jpg

Hey guys,

Srry for the mistake about the pic earlier.

Hey udit,

Buddy the white halogen bulbs actually are not that good at illumination against the usual yellow bulbs. If you want good lightining around you with white light, then you should go in for xenons.

and yes putting in relay's is a must. Your cars wiring has the capacity to handle only up to 50/60w power consumption by the headlight, beyond that the electrical wiring will get fried due to the xtra load of power.

Default New headlight bulbs in Corsa

Hi Friends,

Got new headlight bulbs in my Corsa.
Got all the things from Kashmere gate market.

Here's the setup:-

1. Bulbs :- GE 140/100. I doubt about the authenticity of these bulbs.
The shopkeep said they are GE , but the packing is damaged. Got them for Rs 150 for a pair.

2. Relay:- Dont exactly remember the name of the make. Its made in mumbai and costed me Rs 330. The relay has all the wirings etc already done up.

There is a huge difference in the lights. Would soon replicate the setup in my brother's OHC and friend's Wagon R .

Total cost = Bulbs + Relay + Labour
= 150 + 330 + 100
= Rs .580

I've been using this setup for almost a month now.

Had been to Sion Koliwada was quoted a price of Rs1900/-(including labour) for the following- 2 H7 bulbs(90/100 philips),2 H1 bulbs,2 Bosch relays and the wiring kit.As funkydevil has got it done for Rs1000/-,was wondering are the prices different for H4 bulbs

your wiring harness will be more complex since you will require 4 holders. Maybe 2 relays. also factor in cost of 4 BULBS.
AFAIK H7s come in single filament not double.

I wanted 8000k hid kit for my OHC.So,went to Suri motors (Vashi) yesterday.But he didn't have 8000k kits instead he urged me to buy Siemens 25000K hid kit.He quoted rs.10,200 including warranty for the same.

I said to him that 25000k is too much for my car.He replied "Jyaada hai to accha hai".

I want to know whether ohc's headlamps could take so much heat or not?

Dude firstly, stick to 6000k. They produce more white light and are brighter than others.

25000k will be super purple in colour with lesser intensity and there is no heat factor related to whether the HID is 4000k, 6000k or 25000k. 'K' stands for kelvin, which is used to measure the colour of the light, not power/heat.

Anyone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Edit: As NOIDABOY stated, OHC can take the HID heat, which is lesser compared to your halogen bulbs.

yogi,like i mentioned earlier fiesta has "hi-low" operation on TWO DIFFERENT bulbs. hence for you to do a conversion to brighter lighting you will have to buy 4 100W bulbs (2H1s and 2H7s) then you can either
1) Use TWO wiring harness.
2) build a harness to accomodate these 4 bulbs, 2 relays etc.
any reasonably competent electrician should be able to do this for you.

Help me understand a few technical issues.
My apologies if it has been answered already.

I remember reading that if I "flash" by pulling the light control, both high beam and low beam are activated.
If I upgrade bulbs to 90/100 will this cause frequent bulb fuse out?

I am very much used to this practice. I use lights more than horn.

thanks.
