Hi,

Could someone provide the address for Authorized Halonix dealers in Bangalore. I tried calling up their number given on the their website, but, looks like its an invalid one.

Also, how much does the H4 100/90 +60 cost?

yes. For vista, it's H1/H7 for high/low beams. You can upgrade to philips 100 H1/80 H7 but don't forget to use ceramic holders. You will get the full hella kit for this.

Hi,

I am planing to upgrade OEM headlight bulb of 2007 make Wagon r Lxi. After reading several posts I have been able to gather following information
1. Increase in wattage means more light
2. Relay is required to support additional load
3. Ceramic holders are required to ensure holder does not melt.

I have also gathered pricing information (approx) posted by other users

User 1
--------

Roots wiring kit and relay - Price 650-700rs
Philips Rally H4 100/90 - Price 400 for 2 bulbs
Ceramic Holder - Any brand - 75 to 80 for one holder.


User 2
--------

Two 90/100 Philips rally - 241.00 (120/piece)
Roots wiring harness - 475.00
Roots dual headlamp relay - 170.00

Could you please help me with the following questions

1. Would it be possible to install these components on our own
2. Which brand would be best (Roots/Philips/Hella/Bosch) for wiring kit and relay.
3. Would wiring kit include relay or these are available as separate components.
4. I believe wattage of relay should be more than the bulb, would the wiring kit include relay of appropriate wattage.
5. I am residing near Indiranagar (Bangalore) and looking for a shop which would sell genuine product at reasonable price. Most of the shops have quoted higher price than mentioned by some of the users who have bought these components from JC road.
6. Would it be best to procure these components from JC road. If so could you please help me with the authorized dealer if you have purchased this recently.

Thanks

I'm currently using 100/90 Philips bulbs with a relay. I'd like to go back to using OE bulbs. Can I just replace the bulbs or will I have to take out the relay as well? What is the impact of using the OE bulbs with the relay?

I'm also looking at adding additional lights, preferably HID. I'm looking at lighting up the area between the low beam and the high beam. At high speeds, the low beam doesn't throw enough light to see what lies ahead. The high beam is good but it affects oncoming traffic. I like the Lightforce lights but their HIDs are very prohibitively expensive. I don't mind spending up to 20k. Does Hella have HIDs?

I've seen a lot of mods where the OE headlights of various cars have been fitted with projectors. Has anyone tried this with additional lights? E.g. Source a Lightforce 170 or 240 and then add projectors and HIDs?

Vista (as mentioned before) has an H1 (high) H7 (low) and H3 (fog) setup. All bulbs are 55W.

100/80 refers to H4 type bulbs which have both the filaments in the same bulb with a metal internal splitter. H1, H7, H3 etc are single filament bulbs which have a single rating (55W, 80 W, 100W, etc).

Preferably stick to 80W for both High and Low, but remember to use a relay loom with ceramic holders. I have seen 100W bulbs affect the plastic by making it prematurely yellow.

I have made a few posts for the Vista on this thread which has most answers. Use the search thread option to find them. Keywords - Vista, torquecurve etc.

Hi Guys! I am getting projectors fitted soon. The projectors come with halogen bulbs. I want to replace these halogen bulbs with HIDs. I am thinking of using the philips HID conversion kit.
Here's my question to anyone who has fitted projectors/HIDs (or anyone who knows for that matter): Will fitting the projectors along with HIDs void the car's warranty?
Thanks in advance.

It's safe. But if you cut the existing wiring assembly, it will be a problem. Nowadays all kits are just plug n play devices so no cutting is required. You will just have to fix the ballast and connect the HID's to the ballast and battery. Am using projectors with HID's and car's warranty is still safe.

Default Linea headlight upgrade

Guys,

Linea comes with H7/H1 combination in a double barrel setup. Bulbs are measly 55/60w. What is the best way to upgrade the setup to 90/100w? Is the usual relay+ceramic holder+wiring combination of H4 possible here?

Please do not suggest Nightbreakers/Crystal vision bulb upgrade as quite frankly, I have never found them effective enough.

Going for a higher wattage bulb and ceramic holders + relay would definitely void the warranty on a two year old Punto [with extended warranty] right ?

Contemplating putting just the 90/100 bulbs on the Punto!

i bought projectors for my linea. but the main issue is the headlight glass of linea is sealed with permaglue type sealant which does not melt upon heating. the headlight experts tried it hard but in vain.

does anyone know how to open these kind of headlight glasses apart? i guess chevy cruze too has this kind of sealant used.

honda city, civic etc are matter of 10 min to open.

If the glue is of permanent type there not much you can do here i suppose.
The only way possible was to melt and pry open the headlamps but in your case since its a permaglue, you could end up with a broken headlamp.

I think then the only option left would be to buy a replacement set with built in projector setup.

Oops..I missed this thread before upgrading my head lamp.
Guys, I have upgraded my head lamp to Hella Rally 100/90 using realy kit. The relay kit used is "Super Relay Kit" and I am not sure how good this relay kit. Any one using this relay kit, if so I would like to get some feedback on this.

Also, if this is not a branded one then what kind of issues can i expect and let me know about its life time.
