So the Osram ones would fit, something I was willing to try after a quick inspection last evening.

I am not sure if the Osram kit has the rubber beading, just check before you buy and you can go ahead without any issues. But I hope you are planning for a projector setup, else I would not recommend HID on normal reflector setup which would be glaring for oncoming vehicles

I am using Mini Super V2 projector setup in Baleno from Xenon Planet. I was running with regular 55W ballast. These are not true 55W ballast and start up time is more than 10 seconds. I upgraded to new XP 55W quick start ballast and there is significant difference in brightness and start up time is less than 5 seconds.

I had installed Osram Xenarc HID kit on my Ecosport which had aftermarket projectors. I had to drill the dust cover and install the HIDs. It had the rubber beading which sealed the hole and also I stuck some electrical tape just to be sure. AFAIK, all HID kits will have this rubber beading.

Are you guys sure these Osram conversion kits are genuine? All the information that I have gathered says otherwise.

Something about it here too: https://www.hidplanet.com/forums/for...ion-kit-anyone

It was good. I paid around 10.5k for the kit last year.

@Dr.Naren; Any idea who are they sourcing their ballasts from. I am almost 100% sure that these are being bought, rebadged, and sold. So this bit of Information can be very useful.

Yes, you are right. Xenon Planet doesn't manufacture projector componets. They import good quality products. I do not know the source. It's same with TRS/Morimoto too . They too don't manufacture any products.

Got the OSRAM LED FOG bulb and got it fitted yesterday. Had to put the car on a ramp. Pull out the plastic covering under the front bumper. Access was easy. The bulbs did not work on the first attempt. After a little pondering did a 180 degree of the socket and vola it started working. The osram led had white light on top and blue light at the bottom. It looks good. The throw is focused well on the road and no scatter. No glare at all.
Would have liked it to be more brighter for the money spent. It is just 10w 12v.
Next would be HID for the low beam projector, cause LED does not do the job well.

After a long 10 years, my Honda Unicorn's low beam went kaput. Bought the Philips HS1, fitted it. Next day upon usage, the low beam again went kaput.

What could be the issue? Bulb not fitted properly? Wiring?

check the alternator output and RR (regulator/rectfier) unit. Anything above 14.5 volts or so is unusual and can lead to burnout of filaments.

Could you please share the bulb model and price. Is the power rating same as the stock fog light bulb.

How can this happen all of a sudden? That too after 10 long years?
