Pradip.
I would always align the headlight at professional alignement facility. They will have those equipements with lense etc (do not know what they call it as) and align the beams correctly. Most of those wheel alignment centres also have that normally.

Incorrectly aligned headlights are not good for driver and also oncoming vehicles (as most of us in this thread have upgraded lights). It looks easy as a DIY but a perfect alignment is only a chance. A small error/tolerance becomes amplified on highbeam.

Besides this I would also like to put extra lights for added clear vision. Maybe Hella's. Am attaching a photograph to show where I would like to install them on my Bolero.
Would appreciate some feedback from the gurus and if possible, what specific lights I should be looking at.
Thanks in advance.

Guys I need advice regarding the above asap. Have seen the Hella 700FF and the Hella Comet. what are your views?

First go with Philips 130/100 W for your Headlight with Relay and Cut-out (Wiring) Kit as your bolero have Glass Headlight Assembly.

That's what i can tell you now.

The HID HI high beam bulb woun't go inside the housing because the hole is only small enougf for the halogen bulb, but there is option you can fix it which needs making the hole big enougf for HID if you are intrested in it, i will tell you how to fix it.

Has anyone has installed HID Projectors for the modded stock HL unit. I have heard that it can be done. I want to upgrade my 97 zen to the projectors. Any help?

If I get the HID projectors kit for a cheaper price, thinking of a DIY project!

Default Philips Rallye vs Osram and others

I run Philips rallye 130/100W through relay and ceramic holders on my Bolero. I am happy with its performance, but the heat from the bulbs sort of makes the reflectors go shoddy (I can live with it though). The light is a tad yellowish too.

Osram Silverstar is good, but do they come in 130/100W ratings or the lower rated ones would be good enough? I am also concerned about driving in the rain (White/bluish lights..how effective are they during rains?).
I do my bit of highway driving and especially on the notorious (read speed breakers) Mysore-Bangalore stretch to Kerala and back. I also have 3M windshield sunfilms (SPF 50), so I really need real powerful headlights. More the light, the more merrier I am

So people, please suggest me a good upgrade other than HIDs.

Hey mate,

Where in Bangalore do you get this done. Please provide details.

I was running on "Philips H4 Whitelight Essential Vision 100/90w". Philips Lighting Hong Kong - EssentialVison

Offlate, I felt the power of these bulbs were diminished. I had put them about 8 months back. Last evening, I observed the light to be fading when put on High beam. Checked the lights, High beam was not glowing on Right Side.

I did check the low beam and is working perfect. Removed the bulb and figured out the high beam filament is gone.

I have the Roots wiring kit. Now my query to guru's out here is do I just replace one single bulb or replace both with something better in 100/90W.

Reading through this thread, figured out that Xtreme Power is quite in demand.

My requirements are,

1. Need clear vision during Rains - Its a must, will not compromise on this.
2. I felt the bulbs I was using were not that effective when the sodium street lights were on. Is it the case with all, or just this.

Please direct me to shop where I can get the original bulbs. I have heard there have many duplicates in market specially the Philips.

Since you have mentioned that you need good visibility in rain change the white bulbs since white dont give much visibility during rains. You can replace them with philips rally 100/90w bulbs . Yellow light and bulbs costs around 150 each

Hi Folks,

I want to install fog lights in my alto. IMO the OEM fogs are no good hence I was wondering can the fog lights of any other car (swift) be fitted into the Alto bumper. What would be the pros and cons..
Cheers

As far as I know, there are no OEM fog lamps for the alto. You get the aftermarket local ones. Maybe you can buy any local one and then change the bulb to a higher wattage one along with appropriate wiring for better performance..

And yes, do share your experience. Even i am looking forward to do this since long..!

hi fellow members,
i had a query in my mind regarding the installation of Philips extreme power in my alto. i wanted to clarify that would the installation of extreme power damage the reflector or the plastics in the headlight cluster due to heat?

thanks

Default Auxillary driving lamps for i10.

I do a lot of night highway driving in my 2008 i10. I have been using Philips Xtreme powers for the last year and half and have also added OEM fog lamps.

Still, these are no match for the aux lamps most of the commercial vehicles use at night. Given the condition of our highways where you can never take anything for granted, the few moments of blindness really scares me. Recently, in a similar situation, a friend of mine ran into a pile of stones left by the side of the road, busting the radiator and the oil sump in the dead of night.

So I was thinking if I can't beat them why not join them and fix aux lamps myself. These would be ONLY for highway driving and will only be used in dire need. The intention is not to dazzle and blind oncoming traffic.

Has anyone of you successfully installed aux lamps in a hatchabck? I don't want to fiddle too much and keep cutting and welding to the minimum possible. Please let your thoughts flow.
