Got it fitted through a local accessory shop ,this requires a drill towards the bottom of the door for the lights to be placed there.the moment you open the door it will flash on the floor.

You can always have an on/off switch option incase you dont want it to beam everytime

Where is the power tapped from? Did it involve cutting wires?

I am facing an unusual issue with my RHS car bulb, It switches on and off on its own

It started happening since yesterday, While coming back home, I switched on the lights and after a while, RHS switched off on its own. Then, after a second or 2, I passed through a rough patch of road and Voila, It came back to life.

And, then again, if went off, I then moved the lever to high beam, Then it again came on, then it worked fine on low beam too.

But again same happened today and switching to highbeam and then to low, It started working

Earlier, i though, it would be the bulb, but then it should not work at all on Low beam, No ?

BTW i have halnoex 90/100 bulbs and relay ( i don't remember the name ).

Any one faced this issue ? or i am the first one ? lol

The relay must have got some deposits on the connectors. See if cleaning helps, otherwise its time change the relay.

The deposit can be on the contact points on the holder also or the holder maybe slightly loose.

A slightly different mount option which doesnt need drilling is available for close to half of this site's price on ebay. Can you tell how different these are from the one you have?

Guys,Im contemplating on changing the Low beam for my Civic 2007 and i got a Quote of 8.5k for Philips 4200k and 6000 k (price is same for both) .can anyone here tell me which is good 4200k or 6000k (Better visibility) and also the price i got is reasonable, if not how much and where i can get it in Bangalore..

I heard Philips is the best we get here so haven't checked any other brands .But if anyone knows any other brand which is better than Philips please advise me.Have to decide by tomorrow.

The price looks reasonable. Most likely it will be Chinese made since it's hard to find german make nowadays (heard from my friends who recently bought Philips HIDs). As for better visibility, go for 4300k HIDs.

It will be hard to find 4300k Philips since they stopped it's production (as per the experts). There will be a marginal difference in both where 4300k will be the best. What's the price difference? If it's huge, go for Osram. Pretty good brand.

You got one thing wrong. 6000k is pure white, something similar to household tubes. 4300k is white with a tinge of yellow. Startup of 4300k is pure white and turns yellow after warmup.

Here's a video of my car

MY Bad.Is that 4300 or 6000 on ur Car?

Osram is some 300rs more. Im thinking of going for the 6000k Philips as i smhw like the pure white better than the yellowish white (If its not compromising visibilty much,small diff i can live with).

That's 4300k Auto Gauge HIDs. Been using them for more than 3 years now. If you can compromise on that small difference, go for 6000k. I too like it's pure light output, but visibility was my main priority.
Keep us posted on the updates.

HiI would recommend Philips over Osram. The wait is worth the while. Suggest you use Philips relay as well. I have used both and twice in life Osram have gone kaput

You will have problem with the 6000K only during the rains.
Now you won't feel any problem with visibility, rather you would like the pure white light.
If it can be arranged soon better to wait for the 4300K phillips, or check with other vendors.
