Is something like that possible with Brezza?

Thanks!
Thanks.

Yes, it's very much possible. Infact, the space is much more because the seats can be folded down and seatback can be folded therefore a lot of space is liberated. It is more than a WagonR vertically.

Thanks for the quick response! Yes length / width wise there is no problem. I was wondering whether vertically it is similar to WagonR.

Edit: Thanks for the addition re vertical space!

Hi BoneCollector, I also replaced my stock low beam bulbs with Philips Xtreme Vision Plus from Maruti owned service center here in Naraina, Delhi. Its available at Rs. 640 per piece and is MGA. However after that i am facing couple of issues:

1. Both low beam lights are now projecting downwards instead of straight
2. Left side beam is going far as compared to the other side.

Can there is fitting issues like tilted / loose bulb fitted by Maruti guys ? What was your experience and any suggestions please. Thanks.

Check the alignment of bulbs. They've to fit in a slot. I had faced same issue on RHS as it was not slotted into the slot. The light was going somewhere up. It can be done by you, just check it. Or take it to service center as they're the one who fixed it for you.

A speacial thanks to Dr. Naren and Dr. Parvez (from VBOC) for helping me out.
How are the lamps working doc? I am thinking of doing the same with my Brezza too. A short review of the changes if possible would be very helpful.

Sorry for delayed response, I was quite busy. I'm very happy with the light setup. I've replaced my stock bulbs with Philips Extreme Vision Plus 130 in stock wattage of 55W at first. The output was much better than stock bulbs but still not to my liking. Then I upgraded to Micro XP Fogs. I did the installation and wiring myself with some help from MASS. The details are posted in this thread itself. I'll share some output shots for your help, but all were shot in basement. The Micro XP Fogs light up even the corners a little bit. They are at their full brightness after being on for some time. Hope it helps.

Hi BoneCollector, can you help me with the MGP part number for Phillips Xtreme Vision Plus high beam bulbs which i guess are H7 types. These are not available at any Maruti dealer workshop and they have requested me to provide the part number so that they can arrange for the same. Many Thanks.

Hi, very sorry for replying late. I had sourced the bulbs from Amazon. The ones available as MGA are mainly for Ciaz and Stingray as per the MASS but they'll fit into Brezza. You'll have to check whether they're xtreme vision or xtreme vision plus.


Just a quick update, the car was driven back from Gurgaon in 2 phases, Gurgaon to Lucknow on one day where the route taken was Yamuna Expressway and Agra Lucknow Expressway. There was some spirited driving and fuel efficiency was 17.5kmpl. From Lucknow to home, it was a drive of 547kms on NH28 with maximum speed 98kmph. The fuel efficiency on this leg was 21.1kmpl. Overall a satisfying drive.

Had gone on a 200km drive today, and the condensation issue has again cropped up, albeit much less than last time. Weather is kind of humid and dry at times so not sure what's the reason this time. Showed it to Workshop Manager while coming back just for info and he said he'll inform people higher up. My both headlamp units were changed in March I guess.

I'm not sure if they'll do anything this time. Anyway I'm happy with my light setup and will follow it up only if it starts condensing a lot. Had posted this just a few days back-

Thanks for following up on this sir! Yes, it looks like a defective design that's either letting the heat generated within the headlamp assembly stay inside without a small hole as ventilation support for the heat to go out or the humid weather is the culprit for all this condensation issue within the assembly - not sure if i'm sound technical when I'm mentioning this, but this is what I think .

This will have to be escalated to the higher ups in MASS or MS rather, because of the fact, the least MASS can do is to switch another assembly as replacement but they won't consult with MUL for sure. This will not go anywhere and is bound to sit with us for a long time to come

This is one reason why I didn't bother going to my service station.

Have you noticed any drop in lighting performance on the other hand when you find this condensation happening? I haven't noticed any drop as such. Cross verifying with you.

Sorry for a delayed response. The first time it started happening was during last year monsoons. The condensation was so much that it would scatter the light thereby reducing it's intensity in an already pathetic illumination of the headlights. It took a few months for them to change it. This time, with the new headlamps,the condensation is less but it's there. I've not noticed any drop in performance, maybe because I'm using Micro Fogs which in themselves are too good and mask the poor performance of headlights.
