Since your Verna is running projectors, I’d recommend you to take the plunge & get an HID setup.
Not only will it boost the light output by a huge margin, it will reduce the power consumption from 60W to 35W, while running significantly cooler than regular halogen bulbs & increase the life of the projectors, as well as the bulbs.

Verna runs a bi-halogen setup & not a dual barrel setup like the EcoSport does.

Thanks. Now, most HIDs run 6000K bulbs. That is a white light which will be poor in foggy and rainy conditions. Any suggestions on any specific brand of bulbs that run at 4500K or thereabouts?

Its not the HID kits that come mostly in 6000k, rather the customers who prefer 6000k bulbs. Probably because its looks the most fancy.

Also, a halogen projector might not be ready to take in an HID bulb. The optical alignment might not work out that well. Do a check at a local shop or borrow a kit from a friend for the test.

There are numerous brands that offer bulb with lower temp. Morimoto(US), powerbulbs(UK), reliable local shops, xenonplanet.in or aliexpress.com.

You can find 4200K - 4500K options in Osram and Morimoto, as they’ll be good for foggy/rainy conditions.
Also, if you really want to take it one step further & get the best possible light output from your headlamps, you can invest in a Morimoto projector retrofit.

I am currently using CNLight 4300K HID bulbs in my Ecosport. They are very good.
