Buddy the dealership does not install headlamps of rating greater then 65w, neither do they undertake installation of headlamps bought from an external source.

Pras, congratulations. The finish and color combo look really great! I like the PVC flooring as well.

Thank you! Yeah the flooring was meant to save me the trouble of cleaning the car floor. THe original finish was so irritating and was attracting dust like crazy and would have to be brushed or vacuumed.

I also recommend the same. If you approach it right, dealers will do it.

BTW, your Verna is now more than 2 weeks old

Dealer has refused. Outright refusal. Ive bugged the chap already quite a bit. I went to a highly recommended accessories shop today. He guarantees that theyve done this million times and there will be no tinkering with anything but the headlamp and I need not worry.
Can you enlighten me on this - Would a philips extreme vision 65w bulb give better lighting then the same wattage stock bulb in the hyundai? Or only a higher wattage provides better lighting?
Yeah i know its older then 2 weeks. But how do i change the thread name??? I've looked around everywhere. Is it possible to change it?

Thanks man! Yeah I guess going outside the dealership is the only go as of now. But dont think i'll go in for 130/100. 100/90 probably is more then enough for me.

i will get suren181 to answer this as he has the same bulbs on his verna. there aren't many extreme vision users here. i use extreme vision. and i had high wattage bulbs on my santro. but exteme vision was way better than those high wattage bulbs. extreme vision is really good. and as a comparison better than high wattage bulbs. but the car, brand of the bulbs are different. so can't really compare. so to your specific question, suren can answer.

There must be more than one dealers? “maskao” as ripper says – can’t explain more.
The reputed accessories shop is right in a way. Many people use their services for such things and do not really bother too much about warranty at that time. It there is some warranty to be claimed later, then fight it out when faced with an issue – that’s the attitude but there is an element of risk here.
If you do not want to take any risk the Philips Xtreme Power is a good option. It gives lot more light than stock bulbs, but may not match up to higher wattage bulbs. But the good thing is that it requires no modifications to wiring and is street legal too unlike higher wattage bulbs.

Changing thread name – you will have to request mods thru contact support.

Ok so basically for philips the 2 types that come are extreme vision bulbs and the other is blue vision or something along those lines right? Any idea what the difference is?

maskao indeed! The risk is that if those guys decide to play by the rules then I might lose out later. Ok when you say extreme power is a good option you mean the same 65w bulb right? Thats the one that wont be needing any wiring modification? Any higher wattage one wil need mods. Am i right?

Philips Xtreme Power comes in 60/55W (same as stock bulbs) and is available in H4 & H7. Confirm the bulb type for your Verna. It does not require any wiring modifications. Costs around Rs 800(+/- 100) a pair.
