Can anybody advise a solution to this peeling off of the plastic coating or blackening of the headlights?

There isnt a solution for this. If you use high rated bulbs for long term, the headlights will blacken. It also depends upon the headlight assembly. My friends Getz headlight got blackened in 10 months of regular use.

Hella fog projectors are available. You need to replace the halogen with H3 HID. Check out Tyrex for prices.

I upgraded to 100/90 many months ago. so far no change in the headlamps color. but the increased brightness is appreciable.

You only have hella DE projector fogs available in the market.. They cost you around 4-5k. Check my post in the previous pages, I posted hella projector foglamps pics which I have on my car. I got them from the USA though.

This is a myth coz I have been using higher rated bulbs first in my karizma for 1.5 yrs & now the zen for close to 1yr but nothing of that has happened. I have driven for 2 drives in the night both around avg of 400kms with the same headlight. I also use it for my regular use in the city.

There are two options:
1) Go for the readymade projector headlight assembly. You will have to replace your existing headlight with the new projector HL. This is simple.
2) If you dont get readymade projector HL for your car, you will have to modify your existing HL. You will need a very good installer for this.

What's your ride btw?

That's the first and foremost thing in choosing projectors. All projectors are not compatible, it depends on size of the HL assy, spread, height etc. But mostly people are concerned about the first parameter and compromise with the rest.

There's a very popular type of projectors are available in the market. Retrofit type. You need to pull out the glass by heating the gasket sealant, fix the projector from the front side to the reflector and tighten it with the screw to the reflector Done. Fix the glass by heating the sealant once again. Only the positioning will be remaining and that too in breeze. My projector is belong to this.

Question

Hello Everybody!
I have a Maruti Alto LXI and need fog lamps for it. I asked around (Auto stores) and found nothing .
Does anybody here knows the answer for 2 simple questions?

1) Can I install fog lamps on the Maruti Alto bumper?
2) If yes, is there a particular brand which is compatible with it?

Thank you,
-Z
