I tried them on my Alto, but found the 100/90 more effective. But yes, this is the way to go if the A.S.S jumps about for the warranty issue with regard to the wiring.

4) How much do fog lamp upgrades cost? Can someone suggest an upgrade for the stock verna fogs?
Answers to your queries:

2) No, not possible in the stock headlamps.

3) The 100/90W bulbs do not last long compared to their 60/55W counterparts.

4) The stock bulbs in the fog lamps are H27. It would be difficult to source these bulbs. You can try out HID's.

ShyamSCRDI told me that his getz headlamps were getting fogged up after installing his 100/90s. I think his headlamp casing is plastic. Is this the same case with the verna? Does this fogging issue persist for all brands of light? I think his is hella.

That's a problem with all Hyundai cars across the range, I think. Seen it in multiple cars, and even HMP asks not to change over to 100/90W lamps because of high chances of reflector damage due to the extra heat.

My Alto has plastic head lamps and I have been using 100/90w since the 3rd month (or so) of purchase. It's been 4 years now and the 3rd (or 4th???) of bulb set.

So, the Getz definitely has some other issue if fogging is there.

EDIT: Infact, because it was plastic I was limited to using 100/90; wanted to use 130/110, but that would have been disastrous.

Coming to your question, the black matt finish one is definitely the best looking one.
Yes. It is indeed the entire Projector setup that I am referring to. Not just the Halo rings from which it derived the name 'Angel Eyes'. Thank you for selecting the colour for the Projector setup.But the remaining questions remain unanswered.I cannot afford a HID at this moment. So wanted to know if I would be able to use a normal H4 Halogen in the Projector setup

Is there anyone from Trivandrum , who has installed Angel Eyes in Swift? If so can you please suggest the shop, price as well as the picture of the installation.

Now I have few queries, which might have been answered before. But the search option in this big thread did not help.

1. Where is the Indicator located in the Angel Eyes setup
2. I have a Diamond Vision headlamp. I plan to buy Philips Xtreme Power as well.Both are H4. Will these two pairs of Halogens be enough to be be fitted on Angel Eyes?
3. How will I control the different lights in Angel Eyes. Will any switch be placed which would be controlled from the Driver's Seat.
3. Which type of Angel Eyes suit a Bright Red Swift. A Chrome one or a Black one. I am attaching a picture of the two taken from EBay.
to answer your queries.
1. it is the little thing above the main projector unit. next to the leds.
2. h4 will not fit in high or low beam since i think the bulb sizes will be h1 or h7. (not quite sure of the sizes but h4 wont fit)
3. from your normal headlamp stalk. when you turn on the parking lights the leds and the halo rings will come on. and for low beam the projectors and high beam the reflectors. just the way you use your present headlamps.
4. its a matter of personal choice IMO the black ones will look much better.

my suggestion is to get 4300k or 6000k hids for the low beam. you should get a decent set for around rs 6k. use any 55/60 or 90/100w bulbs for the high beam, in white if you want them to match.

Thank you Akshay for clarifying the doubts that I had. But is it really necessary to go for a HID for the low beam. Does the Low Beam work only with HID? Since I dont have another 6K to spare at this moment, can I use some other Halogen(H1) which would cost under 1000Rs? If so which one do you suggest for the Low Beam and High Beam?

Go for Osram All Weather. Though Palio has one of the best head lamps. I would never change them but thats just me.

yup you can use normal halogens till you can get the hids. use any halogens, preferably white if you want it to match with the leds and cfl rings. use something like philips diamond vision or if you want brighter light then osram nightbreaker or something. but i think projectors work best with hids so get them fast and see how much better they are than halogens.

Thanks Akshay. Your reply has given me answer to a question for which I was searching the entire Team-BHP. But it was difficult to provide a search string that would give me the answer on using Halogen in Low Beam. So I will now put on Osram NightBreaker. I think Philips Xtreme Power does not come in H1. I will update once I finalize on the headlights

I am not going for HID as I think it costs atleast 6000Rs. The max I can afford at this moment is 2000.Will add it later

Osram Nightbreakers dont throw white light. Infact the light is very close to the Fog light color. You can try BlueVision. They are available in H1.
