Thumbs up Osram

Contact Mr. Godwin on 66662591, he is the Osram person.

Hi Team,

Iam new out here, and was going through this thread for the past 1 week and have finally my Accent to OSRAM's 100/90 with the Roots Wiring Harness and Roots Relay, the wiring harness from Roots and Relay is the best quality that you your hands on, the weird thing abt the rates of the 100/90 Osrams was that Mr Godwin quoted me 355rs a pair while I procured the same from Shetty Motors Turbhe Navi Mumbai for just 180Rs a pair. Have yet to test the effect of the lights today evening.

Cheers.

Jitendra,

I believe you had posted the same query a couple of weeks ago. You received quite a few replies, but the thread was merged with the Auto Lighting thread.

Heres the link: your query is on the 4th last page.

The only option is to upgrade to 90/100W bulbs.

Yep go for 90/100W bulbs along with the relay n proper wiring, with philips rally vision bulbs. U can have these under 1,000 Rs.
Don't go for white bulbs - My personal choice.

Else get Hella 2000 or 3000 Foglamps ... they are pretty costly

You can go for the Philips/Osram- 100/130w bulbs (i have been using these in my 1999 Zen for a couple of years now .. no problems till now) .. if possible get the imported ones .. very good performance .. you have to make use of a relay to get the desired output .. all this would come under your 1200Rupee budget ..

White color bulbs are generally nice to look at .. as in for someone outside the car.. looking at the car .. but from a driving point of view i think most white bulbs dont provide enough visibility ..

so you are better off going for the regular yellowish ones since your usage is more of purpose than looks.

Nicejits, the relay prevents your bulbs from fusing due to a short circuit or overload on the electrical system. As these bulbs require a lot of power to emit so much light, a relay is very much needed. You wouldnt want your electrical system going kaput or the bulbs itself.

Do keep in mind that high power bulbs emit lot of heat which could cause the holder and the reflective surrounding to melt. In this case get bakelite holders which can be bought from any truck spares shop. These holders are stronger than the plastic ones and can withstand higher degrees of temperature.

Default Osram 100/90

Hi Team,

I have just fitted the OSRAM 100/90 today, the high beam is extremely powerfull and is excellent on highways, the low beam is better then the stocks of 60/55 and the road is clearly visible, and the light is bright but not white light.

A definite must for highway driving.
