Did you also add wiring and relay?
how is the light output?
Any problem with reflector blacking out due to the upgrade?

It was direct bulb replacement. Have not added any relays or wiring etc.
Light output is much better than the stock bulbs. Long beam has improved a lot (55 to 100W).

Have upgraded it last weekend so will comment on the blackening etc after some running at nights.

Also the availability for H1/H7 with accessories shops is pretty bleak and I almost got no options (everybody talks about H4s).

Dear friends,

I own an i20 Asta. Its a year old now. I'm not quiet happy with the throw of the headlight and hence I was planning to go for better ones.
I'm also sitting on a 3 year warranty which I Dont want to tamper with and hence I'm planning to get bulbs which are plug and play and Dont require any relays or wire cutting or any socket replacements.

Could you please recommend me some good models/brands and the approximate price?

Also would they be street legal in Pune?

I have read somewhere on another thread about Osram Nightbreaker Plus 60/55w 12v H4. Are they any good?

I Dont want any disco lights. What i meant is with blue/purple effects, wannabe imitation types etc. Just simple good lights with increased power for better visibility.

Also, my car has fog lamps. Could someone please recommend me the plug and play bulbs for fog lamps as well?

Dear BHP-ians,

I was checking out this brand P8 and discovered that they have tabulated headlight and fog lamp details for all Indian cars - yes, ALL INDIAN CARS

I cannot comment on the correctness but it is accurate for the few cars I know

P.S. do not forget to thank this post if you find useful

For the headlamps you can look at Philips xtream vision or osram nb+. Haven't used them, but was planning to upgrade on my swift too and had done a lot of asking around. These were the recommended option if you didn't want to go for 100/90 setup. Philips had better reviews.

Any ideas why the previous owner went for this setup(instead of a single relay)?

My another query is that, the electrician said that Bosch 100/90W bulbs are not efficient as they generate more heat than Philips rally. But the beam is more yellowish from Bosch when compared to Philips.

So will the Bosch be better while driving through fog/rain?
Philips rally is the best 100 W bulb available in the market. Two relays and fuse are for more safety. If you have installed only one relay and if it fails, then suddenly you become blind, which can be very dangerous at very high speeds. If you have two relays, one bulb will be working in case of failure with any of the relays.

I am upgrading to Philips xtreme vision. Anyone who's bought the bulbs recently can tell me the best price? I have read around the forum I can get it for 1200 a pair for h4 (swift)

Are there fakes floating around or can I get it done at the nearest automotive spare shop?

I used Osram Nightbreaker Plus 60/55w for some time in my Dzire, it was much better than the stock bulb but when it rains the visibility was very poor. Hence moved to 100/90 Philips Rally with relay.

I recently upgraded to Philips Extreme vision(55/60) on my truck, it is better then the normal once, also otherday drove in heavy rains while with the normal bulbs it used to be very diffuclt to drive in rains during the night, but was pleasantly surprised to see Extreme vision worked magnificently!

Need to thank Tbhpian KishoreB for suggesting me the same

I went hunting for xtreme vision today on Milan subway. Of the couple of shops I asked at, no one seemed to have a clue as to what it was! They kept talking about 100/90 with relay!!

Any idea where in Mumbai I can procure xtreme vision

Any of our fellow bhpians have carried out such mods or do you guys know anybody who can source this.His only requirement is that the lights shouldnt look way out from OEM lights.Pls throw some light.
