@cityvic: Did you need to do any modifications from a wiring/relay perspective?

I am planning to get my ANHC Head lights changed as on the highway the OEMS are not powerful enough

Can someone help me understand the projector head lights and the brands available with pricing and whether any modification would be required for the same. I am not too comfortable in fiddling with the wiring because of warranty issues.

Thank you.

Its just Bolt On.No need to add or change any wires.

Please Note - Cityvic used only HID's on his stock reflectors and there are no projectors here/ There wont be any modifications to the wiring. A pair of ballasts will be included. These are all plug n play kits so it can be connected directly to the existing wiring.

To install projectors you will need some modification to the reflectors and not wiring. Bolt on projectors wont need any modifications. You have to remove the OEM bulb holders and fit the bolt on projectors. But these may look out of place since it's a bolt on. For some quality finish, you will need to cut the reflectors and fit them. The finish will be excellent and the output will be better. I havent actually seen aftermarket projector kits for ANHC. The ones attached are the projectors.

Called up Mr Manjeet and he said he does not have Bosch relay. There goes another lead. I have been trying so much to find it:- in brick and mortar markets and through Bosch website and still no success. Why is it so difficult to find quality products in the market?

Thanks anyway mayankk.

Hi Folks,

I have been surfing the existing threads and finally thought it would be best to post my query over here regarding advice on "Retrofitting Projector headlamps in my 2006 Esteem".

PS: Mods please move my Post to appropriate thread if its repeat-ting.(But i didn't get the right thread for my query)

Query:
- I assume the 2006 Esteem comes with a Clear(somewhat) Headlamp unit. So can I go for Projectors in here(I mean by modifying the reflectors of course.)
- I need both Low and High beam from these projectors(have seen the effect in Audi Q7). So i believe its only possible if have Bi-Xenon projectors ? Folks , please correct me if am wrong here.
- Which brand to go for, if I need to source them from Taiwan/Singapore or from US ? Please suggest the best one as I put Quality first before Price.
- After all these queries , I know you guys may ask how are you going to do it? I am planning for DIY. So Please suggest me a link maybe in Team-Bhp or elsewhere where DIY is done for Esteem.
- Also if any one knows somebody in Bangalore who have done a good job in Projector retrofitting, appreciate if you can share their details.
- Which HID brand to go for as I need Crystal White light(5000K)?

Thanks a ton !

Cheers

No issues, not in a hurry, just curious about the H-Dio capabilities.

BTW, Get Well Soon

Default Re: Auto Lighting thread : Post all queries about automobile lighting here

I am planning for HL upgrade. My requirement is to have good all round visibility in city as well as highways.
I drive a Getz prime Crdi (June 2008) model and had installed 90/100W bulbs with relay, wiring.
Recently noticed lighting is not powerful as it was earlier and reason is reflectors have gone black because of excess heat.

Now i am planning to buy new stock HL unit + add Philips extreme vision or Osram NB bulbs or keep current setup and add aux lights like Hella Comet series.
Stock reflectors are costing around 2700 per piece here in navi mumbai.

So i enquired about Comet 700FF on shop4hella website and placed my contact info.
Next day i got a call from a dealer (opera house, mumbai) and he took my requirements and suggested Comet 450 (rectangular shape) which are driving lamps. Cost for a set is Rs 4500 and i will have to get installation done from some other shop.

Its good to have extra lights but some how i feel these rectangular shaped aux lights do not suit getz prime.
I am still confused whether to replace stock reflectors or get aux lights. Please suggest.

I have a Getz Prime too. For fear of getting the internals (electricals) messed up if done outside, I contacted a Hyundai dealer for headlight upgrade. Over the phone a service supervisor suggested something which cost Rs.4000. He couldn't tell me what type of lamp it uses or what kind of headlight it is. He just said it can be adjusted/rotated or something to that effect. It probably fits into stock headlight space. I did not pursue it further because I am not ready to spend that much. You can try finding out from your local dealer.

Installed Philips Rally 90/100 head light bulbs along with relay in my Esteem. What a difference, its daylight now. Extremely happy with the decision. Total cost Rs.900/-

Philips Rally H4 100/90w with P43t connector. The best that is out there. Cost Rs 150 per bulb.

But ensure that you have relay, heavy gauge wiring and an experienced electrician installing the things. 100/90w bulbs produce a lot of heat and draw more power from the battery. So if they arent installed properly, you may end up with a drained battery.

Attached pics of the Box and the connectors to the bulb. I had the option of either fitting Philips Rally or Hella. Chose Philips rally. Not sure of the brand of the relay, however I think its Hella.
