I couldn't find a website or directory listing for them. Do you mind sharing the Mumbai contact details?

Does this brand have h7 55w? Wondering if it makes sense to go for this over a philips or osram.

Would suggest importing an Osram Nightbreaker Unlimited from powerbulbs.co.uk . They usually have a 20% off offer running and they are 100% original. You will find a lot of fakes in India.

I personally am using them on my Duster and I can see a significant improvement in visibility compared to stock lights. Just ensure they are focused properly.

I second this. It's worth getting stuff from powerbulbs. Just ensure you manage to get hold of someone who can safely replace the bulbs for you incase you are not confident in swapping the bulbs.

Lightbulb Re: Auto Lighting thread : Post all queries about automobile lighting here

Replaced incandescent W5W stock bulbs in high mount stop light of our Wagon R Vxi to Philips T10 LED. I tried Osram T10 LEDs first, but the reflector is designed in such a way that light from bulbs must have a good spread in order to light up the entire reflector cavity and not a strong forward focus as is with Osram LEDs; thus I switched to Philips T10 LEDs with 360 degree coverage. Earlier consumption was 20 watts, which has got down to mere 4 watts for this stop light.

Question Re: 75W/75W H4 for Alto?

This 75W/75W H4 would have been a worthy upgrade for alto, what with it's battery. I would NOT know where can I source the same in B'lore.

Are there any other headlight upgrades possible for our humble alto?

I had 100/90 bulb in my Alto for couple of years with no noticeable damage to the headlight case.

As for higher watt H4 bulb, just got myself one from Ali Express.

Will be able to test it only once I am back in India next month.

We had 2 altos earlier and the one I was driving had 130/100 Philips rally bulbs. Other one has Bosch 100/90. No problems.

Please stop using such rubbish products. They're more expensive than the Philips rally 130/100 plus they will give less light on the road because the glass is tinted yellow. Any tint on the glass always results in less lumens on the road.

Have you used this or is it just your assumption?

Yes, I've use something similar and it was bad. Its the basics of lighting when the glass is tinted with any colour it restricts the actual lumens produced. Always go with clear glass. In the case of HID's its the gas and the temperature that results in the colour and not the colour of the glass on the bulb.

I guess if you have to go with something like this it definitely has to be 130/100 to make up for the loss of lumens.

Already have 130/100.

This was just a spur of the moment purchase. Looks like that is money gone.

Had done something similar a long time back - bought a xenon gas filled bulb which was all good during normal times, but come fog or rain - just a white wall in front; absolutely no visibility and absolute mess!!!

That's exactly what I was saying. Xenon is only filled in hid bulbs and not filament ones. Those always have halogen gas.

Ideally fog lights should always be yellow for best vision in those conditions as the whiter the light the more its absorbed and negated by fog and rain. So the yellow bulbs need to be 130/100 I say.

In fact I've used the Hella 130/90 and found those to be inferior to the Philips Rally 130/100 because their light was whiter even though the glass was clear.

Looking to upgrade my Ciaz Headlamps. Procured H7 100W Osram Bulbs and went to a local electrician. The relay kit he was trying to put was not compatible with the socket available in the car. He said he will have to make cuts, and use the relay he has.

Pls advise, are there any tailormade relay kits available for Ciaz headlamps, so that i can carry out a upgrade without cutting the existing wires?
