Ok, totally OT here, but would like to know if it is allowed to carry car headlight bulbs in cabin luggage? Don't want the security to tell me about pressurized cabins and pressurized gas in bulb story and make me thrown he bulbs during boarding.

Any thoughts on this will be appreciate!

No issues bro i had carried a set of Bosch HID kit in Hand Carry from saudi to mumbai.
If you still feel uncomfortable, wrap it in cloth and place it in center of the cargo bag.

Default Swift Lighting

Before I begin, I would like to apologize to the mods for starting a new thread even though there is a thread for auto lighting. I do this simply because the existing thread is so vast with so many different types of vehicles and so much cross talk that it is highly confusing. I start reading about a swift and i am reading about 20 different cars in between only to like lights which i find out 2 pages later that are incompattible with the swift. So my sincere apologies, I start this thread only because I really value the info you guys have to share.

Now to my problem
I just got a call from my dealer saying that I'm getting the car coming friday so I'm just rounding up upgrade. ICE, Tyres etc all sorted. My problem is the rights. The stock lights are terrible and my office roads are very poorly lit. Half of the times I'm driving and I need to screach and brake simply because theres something in the road that the lights didn't see(I currently have a Palio 1.2 and a Logan Diesel)So I wanted to know, what are the best light upgrades on a Swift Diesel

Options
1.Philips Vision Plus/Xtreme - 65/50 Blubs - No relay
2. Other Bulbs which might fit in, change of reflector is acceptable to me as long as the light is substantially better than Vision Plus

I was very keen on HIDs but the fact is that yellow light cuts white light and all indian streets have yellow lighting, dont want to be driving blind if there is the slightest street lighting.

Thanks guys...

I dint understand this point. Could you please explain better. Also nowadays most street lights have tube lights/white lights na ?

You could try and source 3000K HIDs. They are yellow.

4800k HIDs would do the job very well.

Well basically my biggest problem is my office area, Sewri/Wadala... all lights are yellow. Hence I'm skeptical about hids because they're ineffective in yellow lighting.

I'm sorry, I meant 4300K HIDs. I have no clue if Philips makes them but I'm sure someone will comment on it.

Yeah. Even I've checked with the area dealer regarding Philips. But currently they have only 6000K. He says junta doesn't like 4300K, hence they stock only 6000K.

Haha, let the janta gain a little more knowledge.

I have a query regarding my OHC's front indicator lights. They are 2 point, off-set bulbs (run parking and indicators - Type 1). Recently I bought this cool pair of LED bulbs for the same location.
Problem is, that the indicators start blinking very fast if I install them (like a fused bulb situation) and ofcourse, it looks bad. Is it related to the wattage of these LED bulbs and can something be done about it, like adding a resistor or something?

Default Philips Rallye 130/100

Today, I got Philips rallye bulbs 130/100 along with Roots wiring harness and relay fitted in my Swift Ldi. No wires were cut and it took only 10 minutes for the complete installation. I am thankful to ankitahuja for sourcing the stuff for me, I owe it to you Brother.

Horsepower - Good to see the upgrade and the pics. I am also planning for the same upgrade here in Bangalore for my Innova

Checked with my Toyota Dealer and they say, they will do the upgrade. Price quoted is Rs 1400.

Some questions-
1) I hope the light is still yellow, right?
2) I hope the throw is at least as long as on the stock bulbs. Having perused this thread, looks like with many bulbs, the spread improves but the throw actually reduces!

Your comments?

BTW => Also checked with them on Sun films and 3M RE-70 film for Windows and rear windshield was quoted at Rs 5800, which looks reasonable to me
