I got it from Autoshop ( Koramangala). Not sure about the exact price though, as I bought bulbs too same day. It should not be more than 100RS for a pair. In case you need the shops no please PM me

Sure just give me a day or two. I only used them on the highway when I drove to Gwalior recently, not that I needed them; but just to see what they were like.(They're yellow - thought just incase Delhi gets another round of fog this year)
I havent changed the bulb so I'm guessing they are 55w.

Thanks Shyam. I will call him up and ask.

Edit: Confirmed he has got it stock. Will be visiting Evo in the evening.

You can retrofit 100W bulbs in quite a few Hellas (usually the bigger ones).Don't know whether the same can be done in 450s.

The wiring was normal wiring. Relay my mechanic did use. Dont think it had a brand.

Hi! I need some advice on the lighting, as in headlights, fog lamps etc. for a Skoda Octavia Rider Classic. The current set up, that i have is as follows:
- Rider Classic stock headlamp assembly (single headlight H4 for low/hi beam and a projector foglamp)
- Philips HID for headlamps (4500k, not too sure) and the stock bulbs for the foglamps

Initially I fell for the HIDs due to explanations such as lower heat (else there was a complaint of the lenses getting duller) and looks of the HID.

I have to admit that it is quite difficult to drive at nights. Since the HIDs are not projected, I believe they must be causing inconvenience to the other road users too. Hence have the beams adjusted a little down. Still, I have difficulty for my road view too. Roads without markings are not visible, especially during rain.

I was thinking on adding two hella foglamps fitted at bumper level in front of the bumper or something like that. Would they affect the aerodynamics of the car? condensor cooling capabilities? looks of the car?

Can you please advice me on any other solutions too? Last option could be to remove the HIDs but I would want atleast 130watts thrown on the road and no harm to my headlamp lenses. Approx driving speeds would be 120kmph(avg), 190kmph(max)

I actually have seen a few Octy's, very few at that, with fog lamps in the location you are talking about. It was a very neat fit. But in the other thread, Autopsyche has said something about how it does infact affect the cooling capabilities. You will have to find out about that.

At the speed you mentioned, I do not think the additional lights in front would disturb the cooling capacities . But might be a concern if you do in crawling city traffic.

Please compare the HIDs with another 4500K one, just to confirm that you have the true one.

Is the stock foglight a HID? 3000K HID in those projector fogs might be of some help in rains. Just a thought.

I have 4300k. Pics on page 148. Check it out there.
3000k would definitely help in bad weather. And if you're running OE bulbs with HIDs in the normal beams, the OE bulbs will hardly have an effect at all. I have HIDs with OE fogs - and dont use the fogs at all.
