You do get H27 bulbs, since you've never heard of them, so you've never inquired!

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 don't think H3 and H27 bulbs can have jugaad done on them since the housing and bulb space is extremely limited. Not a very helpful suggestion Anant.

H27 bulbs are available in plenty in Kashmere Gate. Bought a pair recently for my girlfriend's accent fogs. You just need to know the right sources.

Guess all Hyundai cars have H27 bulbs in their fogs lamps!

Yes they do, but Accent OEM and the OE type has H27 bulbs mostly.

All Hyundai OE fogs are either Lumax or Neolite make with H27 fitment rated at 35 Watts. Aftermarket ones are H3 (55 watts) as I have seen.

Aftermarket seem to be a better option

but is the OEM switch for foglamps available separately?


@Ankit are H27 bulbs available in 55W rating?

Havent really specified which bulbs I was talking about, so H3 doesnt really come into the picture. As I said, I dont know much about H27s.

The Philips Rallyeye 130/100w. The throw, spread and luminosity is outrageous. They're essentially yellow in color, and DON'T sport the 'cool' look, but if he's really into 'bright' lights, this is what he needs!

@9thsphinx : Thanks for the info dude, but what my friend is more concerned is about the blackening of the reflector. He does not want it to be affected / damaged. I mean.. are you sure that your suggested bulbs will work well and serve the purpose.

I'm sure Hyundai A.S.S. will be able to provide that.

Will find out and post tomorrow.

To be on the safe side, stick to 100/90 bulbs. They are the advisable upgrade from stock 60/55 bulbs and generally do not cause problems.

yes, @akshay H27 bulbs are available in 55W rating but its very difficult to source even 35W kits for H27/880 bulbs in india.

Check out the below linky, they ship to india also but have to check out thier shipping rates. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to confiure yoru purchase.

Infinite-LEDs & HIDs

But do note that these bulbs and reflectors are not designed to be fog lamps they are day running lamps which are a safety feature in the european cars. So they may not essentially give the throw or spread thats is expected from a dedicated fog lamp.

Default Headlight wiring. Need help.

Hello! I need some help with wiring my headlights. Im no electrical expert so will appreciate if someone could explain in a simple manner how I will be able to achieve my objective like...e.g. Blue wire goes to 87, black wire goes to 86 etc. Please see the image below, it pretty much explain what I want to achieve.

The left-side diagram is my current setup. The right-side diagram is what I want to achieve. I heard people has done this using relay (4 or 5 pin relay). I bought two 5 pin relay for this purpose. One for each side. The problem is, I have no idea which wire goes where.

Default Foglamps for Getz

Hi everyone.

This is my first post to the Team BHP site. I have been a regular visitor for the last 2 years but registered just today and I'm happy about that. I have observed postings from prolific travellers and wise men who have supported their views/solutions with scientific and technical details and I am sure one of you will be able to help me with my queries.
--------------------------------------------------------

I have planned to visit Ooty during christmas holiday next month. I have driven to the hills, driven to Ooty in summer but I am a bit concerned about the winter and about the foggy condition and not sure if regular lights of my Getz will be enough for driving.

I have two questions:

1. Can I upgrade head lamps alone of my car and take a chance?
2. My car does not have a foglight slot in the bumper, what is the other neat option to fit fog lamp (without making much modification to the bumper/body/lines)

Many thanks.

Default Headlight for GETZ

You could probably upgrade to a 100/90 Philips or Narva bulbs in the GETZ which is the same that I have in my GETZ GLS 1.3. But I would advise you to better go for the yellow bulbs than the White or Blue bulbs as these bulbs seem to loose their power in the highway or when driving in foggy conditions....Talking out of personal experience
