Case in point, I have Philips Xtreme Power (+80) on my Lancer and OE bulbs on my Santro. The Santro's clear lens headlights are brilliant, while even with brighter bulbs the non-clear lens Lancer headlamps struggle.
So please keep in mind that the reflectors play a vital role in the light spread and quality.

Oh agree with you completely Razor just came back tonight from a long drive in my mother's Santro with stock headlight setup & the throw & spread of these lights is simply unbelievable compared to even the clear lens headlights & 100/90 bulb setup in Dhanno!

It lights up the road fantastically & makes fast driving a doodle since you can literally see more than you need to! Must say, very impressive piece of design from Hyundai.

iraghava,i completely support this and i believe even my verna lights are not as good as the santros.and its even better than most of the cars ,sub 10 lakh bracket.the best part is that we can easily identify a santro during night drives comming in the opposite direction just by the illumination its creating,other cars having the same quality would be skoda laura,or say a double ligt merc and elantra to mention common cars.

Are Philips Xterme Vision available in Pune City? I am not sure whether they are compatible with the Palio Stile SLX Light Assembly.
Please friends help me in this matter.

It would be compatible depending on whether the Palio uses H4 or H7. I assume it's H4 in which case it would work just fine. I've no idea about availability in Pune but I haven't even seen it around Bangalore. You can order it online from AutoLamps.

Hey,your Palio Stile should be having the same bulb layout as the previous Palio,H1 for high beam and H7 for low beam. Sorry,I don't have any idea about the availability in Pune. But if its available in Pune,they should be offering it in a H7/H1 option.

No,the Palio Stile has two separate beams for low and high. So definitely NOT H4.

Thanks for that information. Well, in that case Philips X-treme Vision bulbs won't be an option since they only come in H4 & H7.

While doing some googling came across this Halonix site...are these bulbs any good. I was interested in upgrading for my Swift LDi.

No worries about this issue! Why not he do a combination of Philips X-treme Vision bulbs H7 for the low beam and GE H1 140w for high beam! That should give a scare and a burst of brightness

I guess they are H1s and H7(May be I am wrong) The presnt light is fine but not good enough on Highways.
I enquired about Philips Vision Plus in Pune and a dealer quoted me around 1250/- for a pair.
I think these bulbs are not that costly.
Any inputs on these guys?
Thanks.

I think they are way overpriced. I remember seeing them on ebay (around 6 months back) for approx 550 bucks (for a pair). Are you trying to stick to the 55/60W? In that case check out other options like Narva, Osram & Halonix. If it's 90/100W that you want to upgrade to, then my choice would anyday be the Philips Rally bulbs. In my opinion, the best halogen bulb in that category.
