Did you upgrade the wiring and add a relay? Which 100/90 bulbs did you install before?

100/90s run extremely hot and it is best you carry 2 spares with you. They can also mess up your reflectors due to the heat.

I think the Swift uses H4s? Brands I prefer are Philips and Osram. Try the new "overdrive" Philips or Osram bulbs that are generally give +50% or +80% more light for the same wattage (60/55). They are more expensive than straight 100/90s but worth the money. Once again, always carry spare headlamp bulbs.

Hey guys,
I have installed a Philips Rally 130/100 W, with relay. It also has ceramic holders. I m planning for a long tour. But Im worried, now, if the lights will blow off, due to excessive heat.

Can somebody please give me advice on this.

I had told you to go for HID's
Neways with the relay in place, you need not worry.
And as always i have said carry a set of spare bulbs in your car.
Even after having HID's i carry a set oh bulbs with me and enough tools to easy the changing job.

Bulbs will not blow however reflector may get damaged. You should install fog lamps which you can switch to in certain intervals letting main headlamps cool down. Also there must be a main fuse (30 Amp) attached with your headlight relay / wiring. Carry one or two as spare of these.

I paid Rs.754/- here in Bangalore, purchased with bill from AK Traders [famous for lighting products in B'lore].

I am planning to try getting it changed with any H7 bulbs, provided I manage to find one. If not, I am planning to sell them off. The box is still unopened.

If you are interested, let me know. I will be coming to Chennai on the 31st, and you can pick it up from me, on the same day, if you wish to. [a bit of note though: i will unfortunately not be in a position to drive to a location for handing over].

Thanks... aK
Ajay,
Nice to hear that we also getting Philips Xtreme Power [80% more light] light pack in Bangalore at AK Traders. Even I am looking for H4 Philips Xtreme Power for my Verna. I will be very thanks full if you share the address and phone numbers of AK Traders.

Noticed a 'Gold ion Lamp' on the rack with 100/90 rating (H4). So brought it.

No idea how much different it is from the Philips 100/90 that I have now in my Alto now. Will have to wait to try it on next week when I plan to get back to India for few days.

Also noticed a xeon bulb rated 100/90, but with my previous experience with those, did not get them, even though I was tempted.

Here is a photo of the box (best shot I got!):

Default hi

i had installed a HID kit in the fog lamp setup of my NHC
but the thing is it was attached to the parking lights wires. So on and off the fuse got blown as it was only 10amp. now my question is to replace it with a heavier fuse or get a seprate wiring done for the fog lamp HID.

any help would be appreciated

thank you,
JAXY

Jaxy - Get a separate wiring and switch for the HID fogs AND replace the blown fuse with the original recommended wattage (10 amp).

Default HID replacements for H4 lamps in Bangalore

Hello,

Does anyone know vendors in Bangalore to pick Philips HID H4 replacement bulbs / kits ?

I prefer to deal with reliable folks as most of the "Philips HID" in the market are fake and the dealers when confronted say this is what they get and they don't if they are genuine

Thanks

Sateesh
