Accent does not come with H3 fogs. IIRC the bulbs are H27.

They ship to India.
this will be one of the first goolged results , here is the low down onthe procedure...

1 . get in touch with the retrofitter
2. send him snaps of your current headlamp setup inclusive of teh harnesses
3. he will give you a quote for the job depending on you requiremenst of of having 55w kits or 35 w HIDs on dual projectors or on bixenon projectors and angel eys , light temp etc
4. Estimate for my verna was around 900 $ including shipping.
5. Half of the amount is to be paid in advance and the entire headlamp assembly inclusive of the wriing is to be couriered to the retrofitter.
6. On reciept the retrofitter will start work and will take anywhere between 2 to 6 weeks for completing this work.
7. On intimation of work completion the rest of the amount to be paid .
8. Add another week for courier back to india.....

I dropped the idea , i decided that running 140W/110W headlamp with proper wiring is good for me and in two years i have almost blackened out one headlamp, i would not flick an eyelid for replacing that with a new verna headlamp assembly for Rs 3700/- approx 79 USD.

I was comparing the throw and the spread of my 140W/110W headlights with the 35 W 5000K HID setup that run on on of brrraj's friends elantra and they seemed similar in normal weather during one of our night drives to maddur. And i bet that my halogens will have an edge over the HIDs on rainy weather. The only disadvantage being the increased load on the alternator and if you are running a high end audio system the drain on you battery .... I am also sure that the tables will be truned if the elantra decides to run a 55W 4300K or lower temperature HID kit. That would be next to insane !

But till date i havent seen or heard about any HID kit projector lamp setup for Verna Available in india.

The lighting quality is bad especially with oncomming traffic you see nothing ahead. I had considered 100 watts bulbs but am worried about the burning up of the front shield . I looked at HID kit philips costing about 9000. Dont know how it will be. Now thinking of projector head lamps . will let you know as soon as I have some info. meanwhile pl keep me posted if you are able to find something good.

Don't know about hid, experts will help you with that. 55/60 is a waste. Go in for 100/90 philips rallye bulbs. (300 bucks total), & a set of wires, relay will set you back by 600. c if that works for you. About the front shiled, u'll have to ask a pajero owner, or consult mitsubishi.

I asked mitshubishi and this is what they have to say,

We, at Customer Support Services, a customer relationship wing of HM-CCP, interact with customers, receive their feedbacks and respond to their queries & other related issues.
Regarding your query related to Pajero, kindly note that as per our specification, we can not recommend for higher wattage bulbs. Further, for connecting of remote to indicator lamps you need to fit the Security Alarm System in your vehicle through any of our dealerships which is an extra fitment.
Assuring you our best service at all times.
Our e-Mail ID is customersupport@hindustan-motors.com"

However the dealer says he has seen vehicles fitted with 90/100 bulbs without any problems. I am yet to talk to a Pajero owner for a feedback.

Unfortunately don't know anyone with a pajero, 100/90 shouldn't cause any problem, & they're good enough as well. Just ensure you get Philips rallye 100/90 & a good set of relays & wiring. Don't avoid this, may your dealer etc say anything.
Which city are you located in ?
ps- ask any owner of pajero on the forum, I'm sure they'll know more. cheers

If you ask the manufacturer in writing this is what you get – no surprises here.
You can probably get the dealer to get the job done for you. And it works

Same here. Actually which is why when I saw your earlier post, I was a bit confused. I had read earlier it was H27, and my reaction was the same as yours.
But I'm pretty sure there's someone somewhere who can figure out a way around it; I mean, after all, Jugaad IS an Indian word.

I just read that you were planning to put fog lamps in your Accent, so I'm guessing that you dont have fog lamps already. Why dont you scout around for an aftermarket pair? True, wont fit the housing; but its easier than looking around for H27 bulbs!!
