Default Need Upgrade on Fogs of my Getxz 2007 model

hi everybody

have been going through this thread , but dint find any answer to my query so took the liberty of posting a new thread. Well as mentioned i have a Getz 1.3 2007 model, my headlights are 4500K HIDs, but now need an upgrade for the fogs as well . Can some one suggest where i can source the bulbs or the HID kit for the same. The bulb size is H27. I need the upgrade as the stock bulbs are just 35 w . All suggestions would be really welcome . Need this upgarde urgently as i have to do a lot of night driving.

Stock bulbs are 27W not 35W hence H27.
You can get HID's,try any local accessory shop.

By cleaning I mean every time you are about to start a night ride.

On the highway it means at every break spot.

Use a clean cloth to see the amount of dirt and insect matter that gets onto the headlight.
I personally prefer colin or brisk.

Hmm... I'v never needed to do that? Because I'v never seen much dust on the glass?! And how on earth would insect matter get onto the headlight??

And frankly, if its only slightly dirty, I wouldn't clean it when outside... as using a dry cloth may cause scratches...

Dosen't anybody know which is the best halogen bulb to buy for bikes?

How much did you buy them for ? Also the Beam Leveller can make a slight difference.

I paid 1000 bucks. I should have gone for 100/90 with relay instead.

Does anybody use Hella H4 100/90 Watt bulbs for Headlights?

Went to Hot Wheels in Bangalore which recommended the Hellas for my Innova

Any information on this or other appropriate replacements would be mighty useful!

I had asked for H27 or 880 HID for my accent fog lamps.
and the dealer had quoted around 5.5K for a pair here in chandigarh.

Nope, tried at many places, couldn't find any. Most of the electrical shops have the grey color tube without the split.
