Don't think so. See my post above. I have been a happy user of Xtreme power for the last 18 months.

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.
Hows the performance of these white colored bulbs? Does it work well with wet roads coz white light is poor in performance when it comes to wet conditions.

I also got two different company bulbs in my car, 1 from Narva and another from Philips both 90/100, so no issues but only in your case the color might differ if you go for philips rallye.

Cyclops - I'm hoping to install the swift fogs because I've seen that the swift fogs are quite powerful and vfm..

I'm exploring the option if this is possible thru a mod/maybe a DIY..

Cheers

Hey, i would like to know the size of the HiD Bulb that would fit the alto fog light assembly.The way i had done it before was to take a zen estillo fog light assembly and retrofit it into the plastic mounting of the alto fog light and then mount them. had a fender bender recently and have lost a bulb because of it. which bulb would fit or would i have to do the same thing again as retrofitting and re sealing the fog light assembly is a real pain. i have seen other alto's with hid kits in the fogs so i'm sure someone here would be able to shed some light on this. If there is no solution will have to go the route i had taken before.

Relays are required for anything above 60/55. You shall not see immediate problems, but over time the higher ampere load takes it's toll. Plus the normal holders are plastic. A good relay would come with ceramic holders which can take the heat of high power halogen bulbs.

I have a Roots relay with ceramic holders. It should cost you around Rs. 600, it installs in a jiffy (no modifications required).

I've 100/130 on my WagonR with a relay (cut outter in slang); also additional Bosch twin horns with a relay, 3 years of smooth drives no issues till date. Its best advised to route through a relay.

I am getting this installed soon, as I've had bad contact in Head-light combination switch (its the one at steering) earlier and I am sure it was due to pro-longed usage of 90/100w bulbs.

However i've not found roots kit here on couple of shops i've asked.

Will hunt for it when i get time to visit multiple shops

Can we install it by ourselves?

If yes, would appreciate if someone shows me the way to do this. Pictures would be very helpful

Well, if I were you, I wouldn't learn this to do it by myself on the first attempt. I'm not discouraging you Ranjan, but just trying to remain cautious.

Question i10 Projector head lamps?

Hi guys,

This is just to keep me informed.I'm a noob!!
I would like to know if Hyundai i10's have projector headlamp kits? I asked so because I have seen umpteen no. of Swifts with such headlamps (like the ones in a Beamer 7 series)! Could you guys get me more info on this and this is the look I want. Got it from the BHP Garage!



Also are there any aftermarket tail lamp kits for i10 that give it the look of an Audi tail lamp, I meant the ones that have LEDs in them?

Also could anyone tell me if I'll have cop trouble if I change the stock head lamp & tail lamp assembly?

And as I said earlier I won't be upgrading the stock lamps for an year or so!! Pockets have holes in them!! This is just to satisfy my curiosity!!
