@Sanjay:
01. Can you mention the detailed (component/model/brand/spec/prices) of individual components?
02. Why are you shifting from 80W H7 to 85W H7?
03. Any effects of heat on the surrounding components?
04. Do the H1s that you are using also give out yellowish light?
05. "...yes INTERFACE is a brand name & much better than roots..." - Why?

Thanks a lot mate.

100/90 Hellas seemed to work fine on an Ikon (H4 series). Not sure if the Fiesta uses the same one though. But if they do then it should be plug and play. You shouldnt have to make any changes to the wiring even. A relay would be nice to have but not necessary. I am using Narva 90/100W (White) on my 2002 Zen without a relay/kit and they work fine.

I Saw The Light Force Lights today Man, it's so unbelievable , you have to see it to believe it.

Cost is from 14,000 to 1,20,000(for HID)

Saw The Awesome Light Force Blitz 240 it costs around 22,300 bucks i say it's worth it. Just for the sheer build quality

It's Here

yes they are infact yellow, but not so yellow as RALLY gold, visibility with these is much better any of 55W + rating bulbs

yes the quality of component used inside is much better & reliable, one of my friend i using it & i take his word...

just went out on NICE road while coming back from office, light is very good, the throw of light on high beam is simply too good, lengthy as well,its worth every penny, i somehow feel these new Red & white packing bulbs from philips is much better that NARVA's , my personal opinion..

I think the setup for Fiesta is same as the Palio that's the reason the installation guy said a 100/90 bulb can't be installed will have to go for 80W bulb.My query though is the H1 bulb 100W or the H7

gopinathann - These look very nice. How much did you pay for them? I had paid INR 800 about a year back.

did you wipe the bulbs properly before fitting. Even if there is little bit of smudge, the high beam can go "pop".
Also I would recommend carrying a couple of spare bulbs with you as these high power bulbs do not have as good a life as normal ones.

Yes, I know that white bulb life time is less and also heard that it blow off when high&low beam is used often. When installing the bulb care was taken not to touch the bulb glass area.

Previously had Crystal vision for 10 months, didn't have any problem except less light, so switched to this one. I have backup bulbs in the car, however the left side bulb replacement is a problem, because the guy had fixed the relay in that place. To replace it first I have to remove the relay and then replace. I insisted him to move the relay to some other place, but he could not fix it elsewhere, have to go with it.

This one is really good and the high beam is more powerful.

According to murphy's law, and what I have seen in the indica and M800, for some strange reason the LHS high beam conks out first.

I could see better improvement in rain compared to the previous ones. Always yellows are better than white, however I also wanted some looks so went for this one.

I beg to contradict.I am using Philips Rally 130/100W for more than 2+ years.The high beams are absolutely white and even low beams arent yellow.
They are more than good enough for rains too.
