I believe you are referring to the low beam of Scorpio. I'm going through the same situation with my Scorpio and I believe for some reason, M&M have not focused both low beam as well as the fog lamps correctly. Even while the beam adjuster is at zero, the beams are set t ~45 degree and the visibility is only a few meters at night. Iím planning to get a headlight leveling/focusing from the service centre, first. Will let you know if it works.

I also heard that the new scoprio has better headlights, may be worth checking.

searched everywhere in chennai for phillips xtreme power bulbs

There are no H1 type of philips xtreme power bulb available in chennai including GP road. H4, H7 are readily available

Bnz Jon has enquired in Reliance automart in bombay and seems thay have H1 type in philips xtreme power though their website says there are no make of H1 in xtreme power bulbs. So i have asked him to enquire more

Osram night breaker and philips crystal vision are available readily

Osram nightbreaker a pair of H1 and H7 bulbs costs 2.6k which is bargainable.

If H1 in philips is not available i am thinking of mix and match . Think will go for philips xtreme power H7 and osram nightbreaker H1.

BNZ update me !!

Default Headlight Upgrade & White LED EyeLids

Hi Guys,

I upgraded my Alto Headlights from 60/55 W to 100/90 W Setup.
Also, got the White LED Strips done between the Headlight and Bonnet.
Gives it a very Cool Look. Here are some Pics taken from my Cell Phone.

I have 90/100 running on a stock OEM lancer set up, for the intial few weeks it was bright but then the illumanation kept dipping and now its as normal as 60/55 stock.

I do not have any ceramic holder or relay installed, Relay i presume are already installed in the Lancer OEM setup.

By referring to the thread, Please advise, Why would I need an additional relay installed, Will their be 2 relays for each head lamp( LH-RH).

What Relay should I Pick up, specific wattage or control.

Has any one tried Flosser [90/100] bulbs? How are they compared to philips rally 90/100?. I think Flossers are made in Germany.

You must upgrade to a good relay plus wiring kit since OE wiring supports OE specifications only i.e. 55/60W bulbs.

A relay will supply the additional power that the higher wattage bulbs require and make them work at their full potential.

Headlight relay is generally a one piece dual relay. ROOTS and Hella are two good brands. I prefer the former.

thanks ankit, but like I mentioned I am running the 90/100 on the stock setup only. So I will need to upgrade this.

Any idea on the cost for Roots Relay and I would need ceramic holders correct.

I have upgraded to Philips 110/100 H4. Total cost : 1200 (700+350+150). Visibility is good now during night hours. I am happy that other drivers started dipping lights to avoid high beam

Nope, a 12v relay cannot effectively handle any electricity from the battery.
12v is only the operating voltage for the relay to get acticvated. The contacts current rating is what will determine how much current it can handle. Even if one uses heavy duty wires externally for the wiring, if the relay current rating is less than the required value, the relay is definitely going to burn out.

A friend has the same 18 LED block in his Accent and it lights up pretty well. Short LED life is a concern, since 3-4 have now conked off!
Hey buddy how much for this?

Yes, you need to upgrade your wiring and add a relay so that the bulbs don't dim and can work to the full potential; thereby offering you better lighting. Ceramic holders are recommended so that they can withstand the heat.

Roots wiring kit (ceramic holder included) + relay will cost you about Rs 650.

Picked up the same for Rs. 300 from Expert in Karol Bagh (I feel I was charged higher). Its good but 3 / 6 LEDs keep getting on / off. Seems some internal soldering is loose but cant help it.

do get the loose LED's soldered. fluctuating leds affect the whole circuit leading to damaging of some leds which are in series.
