I went for a long drive last weekend and the high beam rocks on the highway. Even some trucks with high beam agreed and dimmed. It is indeed 50% more light.

I ordered one vision plus from ebay today for my Santro. Its should be a straight replacement as watts are same as stock ones.

well i have a few queries here, i am currently running on the 130/100 philips rallye bulbs, the bright ness is awesome! i just love it, i have a eletronic relay/cutout fixed for it.

i want to know will these bulbs damage the reflectors in any way in the long run? for there was a complaint from a scorpio the reflectors turned black and had to be replaced, and this was the only complaint i have come across so far!

and can some one put in some light on the tech specs of these bulbs in detail, i can only understand that my stock were philips were 60/55W bulbs and these are more than double wattage thats all.

the car decors guy charged me like 600bucks a pair for the bulbs and the electronic cutout/relay was around 1100bucks! did i end up paying a lot for these?

are the prices mentioned above the same for the original/authentic stuff?
if not where do i get the authentic relay/cutout and bulbs here in hyderabad? please HELP!

i have a accent viva CDRi
will soon post the pics of the relay/cutout and the bulbs!

I want to change the stock bulbs in my Aveo without adding a relay. Which of the two below would be the best ? Philips X-treme 80% or Vision Plus H4. Where can I buy these bulbs in Bangalore?

1100 for a relay is exhorbitant, no way. i got 100/90 philips bluevision bulbs, couple of days back. i paid 1100 in all.. 650rs. for the bulbs 450rs. for the relay(the best one) cheap ones start off @ 250 bux.

Had it been the other way round then probably I wouldn't have reacted. 1100 for a relay? Man, that seems to be a rip-off. At its worst, the best of the relays don't exceed 500 bucks, unless the guy sold you OEM Benz of Beemer's relays sourced all the way from Stuttgart or Regensberg in Germany.

Hope you get the drift..

That would be quite nice. If you can tell the brand of relay then I can check here with the spare parts guy..

gd sir, where do you source your relay from? I have been looking for bosch or roots wiring harness with ceramic holders in gurgaon and seems as if they have never heard about it.

I got them from eBay. I did not try local shops as I was scared of fake ones.
