No I don't know if it was the 80w that blew the wire as I had blown a bulb earlier with the old wiring. Which one are you thinking of using? The Osram guys in Bangalore said that Nightbreaker is not available in H11 in India yet. Have you heard anything different?

Definitely they are, if only your requirement is to increase the throw of light and better visibility.

I think lack of relay led to the wire melting. I am thinking of Osram Nightbreaker, no relay required, will talk to Osram and let you know.

Installing the Phillips will definitely give you a distinct and authentic look to your car in the dark, however, for reference i would recommend you to check out team-bhp's great buddy's review.

And for the fogs, you"ll be needing the right size.. yes you can get them in Phillips and osram. However, you need to confirm the fog tube"s size availability with your local vendor.

Cheers

Cool

Hi, I went through the entire discussion thread and have only one question....I just want to know whether Xenon lights invite trouble from the cops. I have a Santro GLS and I am planning to upgrade the headlights to a better one from the existing company fitted ones.

A nut here on team-bhp just got these:



They are racetech bixenon HID's i.e. both high and low beam 6000K on the swift.

Since he had nothing better to do on Valentines day other than take his better half for a walk, he got his car these HID lamps.

After seeing this post you can rest assured he will come around to answer any questions since he is no longer on the dark side.

Let there be light.

Hi guys,

Can anyone tell me which is the best brand (other than Philips) of HIDs for Swift fog lamps? Are H8 HIDs available? If not, which size will fit?
