Default Upgrading from Stock Bulbs - Swift

I want to upgrade the visibilty procurred from Stock Bulbs for Swift.

Am confused as to which should be a better setup.

Osram Night Breakers
Philips Vision Plus
100/90 Rally Eye setup.

Reliability is the biggest factor for choosing the variants.

What can be added for better lighting of the Fog Lamps.

For headlamps, I can recommend Philips Xtreme Power. These are 60/55 and do not require any relay or wiring change. They are definitely much brighter than any stocks. Also, they are yellow light and hence do not cause a problem in rains. I have them on my car since the last 7 months now with no problems at all.

I bought them for 900 bucks per pair at that time. Do not know the current price. However, I have the contact person's email in Philips India from whom I got the distributor's details for my purchase. Let me hunt for it and I will PM it to you in a while.

I have been using the xtreme power from philips for a few months now. I dont find them as good as they were proclaimed to be. The high beams are decent, but the low beams are just as dissappointing as the stock lights I had on my verna. Somehow looks like going for the 100/90 is the only option left.

I am attaching a picture from the 3003 box which clearly shows all the actual dimensions. The dimensions for the 3000 are very similar (give or take the odd mm).

One big difference between the two is that the 3000's use clip/push fit bezels. These take a few seconds to remove so they are not very secure. The 3003's use hex nuts and the unit looks a lot more secure.

its the bulb size or shape if you might call it. each bulb holder will house a different bulb size.

just for your reference, look at the different types of bulbs

OSRAM|Consumer|Automotive Lighting|Products|Headlights|NIGHT BREAKER|NIGHT BREAKER family|index

Thanks buddy.
