No manufacturer can deny you a warranty claim in case of an electrical bustup if you got it fixed from your dealer.
Last week only, I upgraded my stock with Philips Crystal Vision. I will change to Philips x-treme once this bulbs goes out. How much did you pay for the pair ?

Couple of days back updated from 55/60 to 90/100. got the PMP relay unit and Philips rally bulbs. am yet to test the performance.

Wanted to know if i can use 100/130 instead of 90/100?

I saw phillips rally 100/90 today with a dealer. He quoted me 400 for a pair. I thought rally series was only available in 130/100.

Are they fake or is it that rally is also available in 100/90?

I bought them online at Autolamps for $40 (pair), roughly Rs. 1,650.

If Philips is going to release this in India through distributor, will it be less ?

Hi, I have fitted the X-treme 80% 60/55s to my Aveo and the effect is remarkable! The sheer quantity of light is much higher now and also the beam is still quite tight and well focused.

As they are rated same as the stock bulbs, there was no need for any modifications/accessories and it cannot violate my warranty either.

I have some grainy pre and post pictures taken with my camera-phone and I will post them ASAP.

To answer Gopinathan's question, I seriously doubt they will be significantly cheaper when launch in India. These hi tech bulbs are masde by Philips Germany so there will have to be an element of customs duties etc even if the import price is artificially set low by Philips India.

Like some others, I bought mine from Autolamps Online (UK) and paid INR 1,689 for them with a 2 week wait for them to arrive.

Hope the above comments help!

Waiting for your pics.

Since I have already upgraded my headlamp, I would like to upgrade my fog lamps with white light.
Any suggestions.

ofcourse, I am not using it because it doesn't match headlight. Looks odd.
