IIRC vision plus are no longer produced by philips, now you have the x-treme power +80%s They cost about 900 per pair, worth every paisa .

Thanks for the education, Champ.

You may want to change the Night breakers with diamond vision. They are pretty much near by to HIDs.

Hi,
I have been able to find pair of Vision Plus for my Car. Just awaiting to get them fixed and will update you on the performance.
As far as I know Philips were not able to market it properly and people also tend to fall for the Bling Blue lights.

Can you please share, how you are able to get 17+ kpl from your Turbo DLX. I have never been able to draw more than 14-15. One reason could be my driving style

Hi All,

I have put Philips Essential Vision 90/100w with Bosch relay to my Getz. I want to replace the existing fog lamp bulbs.
Do I have to fit another relay to accommodate the new ones or the one for headlights can be used for the same?
Another point is that in the Owner's Manual the wattage for the fog-lamp bulbs is 27. Is it so low? What is the wattage advisable with and without relay for the new bulbs
Kindly recommend new ones.
Thank You.

Default HID - H7s and H1s

I am thinking to but a set of HIDs for my Palio (H1 and H7). Which brand I should consider ? What is the best one, is it 6000K ? What is the price of a pair of good HIDs ?

Please guide me if there are old posts on same topic.

Thank You,

Raneesh

Dude I totally agree with you on this. I've got the exact same setup and the highbeams actually fall shorter. High beams are a joke in my car...

Whats the wattage on the diamond vision? will it melt the angel eyes?

I'm basically looking for an option that will make the high beams comparable to the HIDs without causing any damage to the setup. I'm currently on osram nightbreakers. I think they are 55w

Let me put it this way, its pointless using my high beams because the low beam throw is just so much more. I want something comparable in terms of throw. Again, without damaging the setup

Hi everyone!
I finally got Vision Plus for my ride. After using Crystal Vision for almost an year plus I find them quite yellowish but I find the light to be far better than Crystal Vision. I got them for Rs. 600/- a pair from a shop in Sec 16 Noida. He is left with another pair if anybody wants one. You can contact me for the details.

regards

Have a LS Magnum Diesel and want to upgrade the headlight bulbs. But without changing the wiring or installing any relays. Need it for a City + Highway combination. Can you suggest and if possible a place to buy in Gurgaon or South Delhi.

Try sourcing Philips Xtreme Power. They are 55/60 with 80% more lighting i.e. you'll need not to change any wiring or relay. New Optra Headlights are H4 i think.

Diamond vision are 55/60 and will not melt angel eyes anyways. Diamond vision is the only effective option to give HID like effect, but beware light throw of diamond vision ain't that good. It is more or less same as regular 55/60 wattage bulbs.
