Sure?

Man! does that mean all the hundreds of bulbs stocked in all the showrooms i checked recently were fakes?
Dude if this is true, source one for me please. My gut feeling is that most of them are fake atleast here in bangy.

I just got an email from them stating they have run out of stock but expect a factory delivery in a week or so. Only then can I expect a pair in another 15-20 days or thereabouts. Means, I have to wait for a month or so for them.

I suggest you stay away from 130/110W and put in either Hella gold(Yellow light), Philips rallye(if you get originals, almost impossible) or Halonix.
3. Best option seems to be Osram, if you can get 100/90 Osram then nothing like it.
We put 60/55W Osram in a safari and light is same as the 100/90 bulbs
Well i am white light crazy but after seeing the pics in the earlier posts i think its better to stick to Osram / Halonix. Is Osram easily available ? And whats the cost of Hella ?

Also Bhpians i think we have successfully found our own BULBS dealer after our famous Tyre dealer. Just kidding lol !!!

Hmm... but I was recently contacted by Philips, and they actually suggested I go for the Rallyeye bulbs. So, not sure about your info...

Jaggu, actually its an h7 HID kit, not just a regular bulb.

If what akshay says is true then it wont be difficult or expensive to make the change. Can it be done without causing any problems?

So they're available in India now! Any idea how much they cost?
Also, are you sure of the name? I think it's X-treme Power (no Plus).

hi

The use of High Watt Halogens will fade the colour of Glass of the Head Lamps, cause high watt bulbs produce more heat than normal stock bulbs, the manufacturer of the vehicle has fixed stock bulbs after many tests, So i prefer you to fix extra Headlights or Fog Lights for More Illumination

You will have to experiment and see how the HID will fit and work, best is to go to local gujili and get a set of old ones to play around and bench test before taking off your OE ones, will avoid a lot of hard work and time

All HID are kits, with Ballast. You don't have a "Bulb".
The fitting is not simple as "bulb replacement" and involves as much complexity as fitting a relay. Not a big deal, but make sure you go to a guy who knows how to wire headlights and relays.

I have ordered mine from Autolamps website. Fellow member razor4077 recently had a pair delivered but hasn't tried them as yet. See link below:

Philips HID,Philips Visionplus,Philips BlueVision,Philips DiamondVision, Philips Power2night and GE HID,GE Megalightplus, GE Euroblue sold by the industry experts

X-treme Power costs $40 a pair at Autolamps.

Tsk mentioned that these are available at the authorized dealer in Delhi, but I can't confirm. As per last info received, these are still not available in India officially.
