Default Auxiliary lamps in Safari

Dear Experts,

What are the ways to fit Auxiliary lamps in Safari without going for bull guard? Can we make some custom fitments just for fitting auxiliary lamps?

I want to fit 4 lamps in my Safari

1. A pair of Hello 700FF probably for spot long distance highway usage
2. A pair of Neolites flood beam pattern.

I can see there are a pair of tight bolts which holds inter-cooler guard. Any suggestion for custom light holding fabrication in Bangalore?

Probabaly the vibrations of the short drive induced the relay to cut off the bulbs.

Anyone else faced siilar issues???
I have also faced this same issue. The problem with my setup was the relay used. After changing of the relay to PMP, this issue have disappeared.

Changed from Bosch 90/100 to Philips Rally 90/100. Rally is better for sure but costs double the price! ( 80-85 for Bosch and Rally costs 165rs)

IMO, which bulb suits a car better would depend on the reflector shape. You would have to put in each and check which one works better for your car.

I have upgraded to Philips Rally series bulbs with Hella wiring harness. These bulbs are very, very bright. But, I'm told that they have a short lifespan.

Did you get them in Blister pack or in the small box packing (red & white color)?

There is also a Symbol on the packaging suggesting not to use dipper frequently, I am not sure why

Got a pair of Philips xtreme power for my 5-year old Honda City today. I wanted to improve lighting without the hassle of wiring etc. For that limited purpose, my initial impression is that they are definitely brighter than the stock H4s with longer throw. I can see better with these at night for sure.

You can stick with stock wattage or go in for 90/100w. For this you need to install relays. ceramic holders and proper wiring. I would recommend Philips brand. You have many bulbs from Philips that offers white light. But kindly note that these bulb wont produce pure white light as bright as HID's (like you see in BMW, Audi, Merc etc). There will only be a slight difference in the output. These will have a tinge of white color.
For that pure, bright white light output you will need to install HID's.

Cheers.!

Cityvic, like I said in my earlier post, get Philips Xtreme Power. They are awesome. No change will be required to the car, the old bulbs will just be swapped with the new ones as the voltage and wattage is the same. The light is brighter and whiter with longer throw. After my last post, I was so impressed with these bulbs that I went and got the bulbs changed in my other car as well.
Philips also makes a range of regular, halogen bulbs that produce white light called Crystal Vision, I think. But they will be no brighter than your regular bulbs - just white light. Again no change is needed to the car.
Disclaimer - I am not associated with Philips in any way.

Hi guys,
Recently I got sun film on my alto's(800) windshield. Though the film is not dark, I am facing problems driving in night. My alto is running on the stock headlight, and I use only Low Beam. I am able to see only the road as far as the light throw, not able to see pedestrians or other obstacles.

Please suggest an upgrade for better visiblity.

You can check out higher rated bulbs (90/100w) from Philips. There are many cheaper brands but I recommend these. Make sure you have the complete kit which includes ceramic holders, relays, wiring kit and bulbs.
