I have lightforce installed on my Endy. I totally agree with Khan bhai on the rabbit story, and also if the lightforce are in action the vehicle in front of you can't stand them and they will try to get rid of you, either by giving way or making there vehicle fast.

Hi,

Best to take a look at the Hella India site itself and call up a dealer there to check.

Issue is that these are imports and thus staggeringly expensive with bill and warranty. As far as I am aware, Hella India makes only the basic sets (FF/Rallye/Comet) ranges and thus they are relatively affordable.

Call up a dealer and post his response! I am also interested but have been put off by the prices.

Default 100/90 phillips essential power

got these phillips, made in germany, bulbs fitted in my Dzire alongwith hella relay, harness, holders etc. total cost about 1200/-. I have shot (exposure time and apurture constant) pictures of before and after the upgrade http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ml#post1535032
Now one can easily see the difference.
BTW any one heard of these bulbs "essential power"?

Hi Amrit, The cheapest alternative is to go for Philips Rally 100/90W bulbs. You will need to install relay and extra wiring for the relay. Go for Roots relay and Finolex wires.

You can also install Hella clear lamps, if necessary.

I have installed Philips 130/100W Rally halogens. Some Bhpians had problems of reflectors darkening when they used this bulb. So it is your choice. I have been using these bulbs for the past one and a half years now. I just returned after a 4000 km trip. I did a lot of night driving. No problems what so ever.

Recently faced a problem after installing 100/90 with relay from a MASS. There were some god knows something issue, and the lights got on even if the stalk was off. It remained on through out the night without my knowledge, and the following morning, obviously the battery drained out. Today after I got the battery fixed, again it automatically lightened up. So while driving down found a road side mechanic and he did some tampering and it is apparently OK now. Today most of the MASS in the area are closed and will take there tomorrow. But before that, any idea what could have gone wrong? The road side guy was not able to put any specific input what could have gone wrong.

Update - For my case the relay is the culprit.

Awaiting Suggestions from the Masters !
Sorry no suggestions on Flosser but I recently did an upgrade for my Esteem with Roots relay and Philips Rally 90/100. I travel about 80 kms every day on the highway and was pretty pleased with the results.

I recently got a Roots relay with 90/10 Philips fitted for my Esteem. The garage guys have left the relay box unfixed - as of now it is lying under the coolant reservoir. I did ask them if this would be a problem if water/ coolant overflows and reaches the relay box - but they said that its not possible. Is there a way to fix the relay box in some safe are in the Esteem's bonnet?

Default Osram NightBreaker H3 / 55W /12V for my CEDIA fog lamp

I bought a pair of Osram NightBreaker H3 / 55W /12V for my CEDIA fog lamp. I bought it from ebay UK.
The pack says it is TYPE 4G. Can anyone clarify what it means.
CEDIA's stock is H3 / 55W /12V. Nothing mentioned about TYPE in the owner's manual.
I am yet to take the car to service center to get this changed. Wanted to make sure it is suitable before I go all the way.
