Has anyone got the projector bulbs changed? I am planning to swap the manufacturer fitted bulbs as night drives are usually on unlit highways. Which one should I opt for?

You can opt for the XtremeVision bulbs which they sell as MGA. The part number is 990J0M67L11-050. It is compatible(H7 type) for projector equipped Marutis-Ciaz, Stingray and Vitara Brezza and costs Rs. 700 per bulb.

I have used Xtremevision in H4 configuration and can vouch for its excellence. While keeping the stock rating, its the best upgrade you can possibly get. Hence I guess it should perform better in the H7 rating too.

Shashi

@Bigwheels,

Two points which i missed out, The vehicle must be in the ON mode. Will not work in the ACC mode.

Secondly, you need not press both stalks simultaneously, the one on the right side will do. Just keep it pressed till you see the "door" displayed. From here onwards, you can push to select and navigate through the various options.

Do let me know when you get the bulbs upgraded. I'll change mine too - just note that warranty is not affected !

Go for Osram Nightbreaker. They are the best, certainly better than NightVision. Buy at Amazon:
Osram H7 P64210 Night Breaker Unlimited NBU Duo Box (12V, 55W) https://www.amazon.in/dp/B00EPLCPRG/..._OWZGxb5DN20WD
And fit yourself in 2 minutes. Its just a holder, remove the older bulb and put the new one. It's just ₹1975 whereas local shops charge about ₹2400.
If still uncertain about installation, just go to any nearby service station and ask them to install the bulbs.

Hey ! H7 is for low beam or high beam in Ciaz ?
What about fog lights ? Do we need to replace them for something better ?

Fog Light is H5 ?
High beam is H7 ?
Normal light is !?!

I am all confused

Installation is not an issue, but will it fit as i read on the verna review in this forum, a member had ordered a particular bulb and it was not fitting in his 2015 verna due to some pin issue. Though those were compatible with the previous version verna's. My only doubt is because of the projector thing.

Car make and model doesn't matter. Bulbs are not compatible with a particular car model. If you know which bulb it is that came with your car, then no reason to think twice. If it's h7, you get h7. If it's h4, you get h4. It will fit.
Zest's projectors for low beam come with h7 bulb, I don't know what's there in Ciaz's projectors. Any car electrician will tell you the bulb model in one look. Just drive to your local service centre.

To know for sure which bulbs are there in which light type, please take your car to nearest service centre and ask an electrician to check for the same for the low beam lights.
Trust me, low beam Nighbreaker are sufficient. As it's a 5 minutes exercise, if you like the performance and if you travel on highways, you can go for a high beam upgrade too.
Fog lights are quite OK generally. So, only lowbeam will suffice. Still, if your usage is where its foggy for long, you can go for a fog lamp upgrade.

Eyes closed, go for Osram Nightbreakers. I have shared Amazon product page URL above. Just order it mate, no two ways about it.
In my new car, I got 3 upgrades done.
1. Tyres - Yoko Earth 1, best for the buck.
2. Low beam: Nightbreakers
3. A proper ECU remap from Tune o tronics.

This is what caught my attention.

What has been the difference after the remap? I know the warranty is no longer valid (not a point of concern) but how did you measure the effect of the remap?

Did you try/think of other options like a tuning box before the remap? What did it cost you?

Finally, which variant of the Ciaz do you own?

There it is. ASEAN NCAP crash test of Ciaz. 4 stars is not bad at all, but child occupant safety is a miss. To rest the argument that ciaz is the lightest of the segment and hence it is not safe, this crash test comes as a relief to worried owners like me.

This is actuaaly a relief. I had argued for a Vento only because of the safety gear. But the family decision voted for Ciaz. 7 months & 10000 kms after buying Ciaz the video brings immense relief to me.

Thanks a lot for sharing

After the remap, the car has been transformed into a "beast", a name given by a dear friend.
Of course losing warranty in a new car is a matter of concern. But as it is not traceable by the A.S.S. guys and hence warranty would keep intact, I went ahead.
I measure the effect the old fashion way, drive it. When I say the car is transformed into a beast, that is enough.
I went through all those such threads on our forum and then there was no point of trying a tuning box.
It cost me 30k.
It's a Ford Fiesta, not a Ciaz.
