Would it really be 140/180W? And what about the holders for it? Most wire/relay kit support only upto 300W max.

Default Another xenon query!

i need to improve my cedia in the lighting department. the lights dont seem to be sufficient for me at least. i have gone through some of the posts but would really appreciate responses.

initially i had thought of getting osram's/philips but the wattage being the same there wouldnt be too much of a difference (logically?).

and therefore now HID's seem to be the answer.


The car uses H4 60/55's (single lamp, unlike my dear palio's double lamp which i am so used to as far as the lights are concerned and therein it seems lies the problem).

now to the questions:

- the HID would be better for low beam...am i right?
(since i do highway, both hi/lo xenon's may not make sense). pls. correct if i am wrong.

- but would a xenon lo beam bulb also have a halogen hi beam?

- should the wattage of the xenon be 60/55 (since the current halogens have those wattage) ?
with type 6000K i suppose, since 4500K are hard to find?

- for switching to the xenon HID: should it be a projector setup or will the current reflector based setup suffice?

- the HID setup would require additional wiring bypassing the oem wiring, harness, ballast, and holders?

- finally, from where in delhi/NCR to get the Xenon's from and which brand?
(if anyone has dealer contact numbers pls. let me know, thru a PM if you please.). i only need to get the kit. the installation would get done from the dealership...to be on the safer side of warranty issues

a projector setup would be better. try and get the projector setup.

most HIDs are 35w.

in the projector setup i think there is a separate bulb for high and low and otherwise in h4 HIDs the bulbs moves to give the high beam effect.

6000k would be fine but 4500k would give better visibility.

Are you talking about these?
Then read this link here IPF light bulbs H4 Super Low Beam XX series headlight bulb upgrade
They even have a 150/190W option ,but in actuality these are 60/80W bulbs with coatings and some have 'double-tube' inside them,which allegedly gives 'extra performance' !!

Yes, I think it was these lights,do you know whether it is really good and lasts for long and is it so powerful that it can blind others because140/180w sounds like whoooo.....

If these lights can give you as much light as a 20W bulb, I would consider it as bonus
Have seen these in action. The lousiest stuff money can buy.

Absolutely! I couldn't have said it in a better way than tsk.
Team-S,if you look carefully to the left of the picture,outside the red circle,it says that it is an 60/80W bulb,which claims to give out light in the range of 4100K!

Exactly.. this is like those 200gb pendrive's that are floating around.

65/50 would be better than these unknown 140/180's

Hi,

I am using Philips Crystal Vision in my Skoda Octavia. Want to upgrade the lighing because it is very poor. Actually it is worst than the stock ones. Both high and low beam. Can you please suggest some good alternatives. I think lights dimming because of poor battery power. My battery is 3 years old. Experts advice please.

Thanks
Dibs
