Rs. 1400 with Wiring Harness, Relay, bulbs and Installation is a fair price with Bill.

I hope the light is still yellow, right?
Yes, It is yellow only.

I hope the throw is at least as long as on the stock bulbs.
I don't see any difference in the throw except increase in the brightness, which in turn lights up the road surface brilliantly.

Thanks horsepower for all the clarifications!

I sure do hope it does not blind the oncoming traffic in low beam, though. Otherwise it may make sense to go for Philips 100/90 bulbs

Guys, I have fixed Philips rally 130/100 to my santro with relay.. On highway while driving i realised that one bulb is emitting more light, while the one, in front of me (drivers seat) is emitting less.. I dont know whatz wrong. Check the reflectors, check the bulb holders.. Still m not able to figure out. Can anybody share anything on this??

Did not know that Santro's head unit can take this amount of heat without damage.

Yatin, did you change the bulbs across and check?

I have cermaic holders for the bulbs, so i guess they can manage the heat part. ALso most of the time, i drive on low beam, as the rally bulbs instruction shows, driving on high beam, for more than 5mins, heats a lot.

But I just heard, that its always, that the bulb at the driver side emits less light than the one on the other end. Is it true?

I have not heard this before; but I do know that most cars have the right side light focused a level lower than the left side, so that it does not affect the opposite traffic.

I have observed that there is indeed a difference in the throw, it is actually shorter than the stock. What can be the reason for this? I think time to look for more options.

it's because the automotive law of india
it states that any rhd car should have the right side light focused a little lower than the left one

like the left hand drive in uk

Oh, no wonder, I was guessing, why do I find my right bulb focussing a bit lower than the left bulb.

Guys, just had been on Pune - Aurangabad trip, and trust me Phillips Rally have done their job excellent. With straight High beam lights come right across your face, from these trucks, tempos, and buses, I was easily able to glide with high beam at around 100 Km/hr.. Worth spending the money..
I was amazed as, I had been on the same roads, some months back, on stock bulbs. with Philips rally, they difference was quite noticeable.

The law, as far as I know, is universal. The driving side headlamp has a wider throw whilst the other headlamp has longish throw. By the way, UK is also right hand driving. So are most of the nations which were ruled by the British

Default How much for philips HID in bombay

Hi Guys,
Where to get "GENUINE" philips HID H4 from bombay, Closer to VIRAR. Here in Ludhiana it cost about INR 7800 for 6000k including installation but the dealer doesn't have MAAL at present, and I am leaving for bombay on 5th. Other thing ludhiana guy told me was philips has stopped the production of 4300 k because of less demand (being bit yellowish) , 6000K has replaced it and it is selling like hot cakes + the kit comes directly from GERMANY. Is it true ?

Any help on the above from the technical guys?
