Well here's an update after a long, long time. Gabbar has till now covered about 36k+ kms and has seen a not so stressed life like Dhanno did before it primarily due to my much reduced running in the past couple of years.

Anyway, along the way, she's picked up a couple of mods. I'll let the pics explain better:

Fitment of Ultra Light Weight Konig Britelite alloy wheels. 15"x6.5J - 5.4kgs a piece
Shod with Advan Neova AD07 tyres in 195/55 R15.

And then, owing to the very poor headlights of the Getz, I decided to go in for a full-blown Projector+Xenon upgrade on the car. But, being a more usability rather than looks guy, I decided to go in with a relatively unknown or unpopular setup for the car.

Final configuration was as follows:

Infiniti FX-R Projectors (Modded for RHD)
Paired with Philips D2S 4300k bulbs & Philips ballast

My friend Pranav did the build process of the light for me and he did a fantastic job with them.

Now I don't have to worry about the pesky Santro's/Wagon R's etc with their high beams on. The low-beam is more than sufficient for everyday usage and when needed the ultra-quick D2S high-beam flashes have enough of an effect even on seasoned truckers to get them to dip down to low-beam

I'll let the pics talk for themselves:

Amazing the upgrade is. How much did it cost you.

The throw is awesome and so is the setup.

Congratulations on this super upgrade.

Excellent lighting set-up. Do you mind telling us what it cost you?

You are still running this pocket rocket with a 1.1L sticker from the Santro? LOL!!

Sirji - for a moment i thought that the Headlights were stock. It definitely looks much better than stock in terms of lumen. Please share the cost if possible.

Congrats Sirji.

raghava you have transformed your Hot Hatch into a Fireball buddy. AWESOME !!

Now like many here, I have few questions and you know what they are..LOL

1. Please share the cost for the entire setup and time taken for an installation.
2. Probably more important, how can I source this onto my Getz in Bangalore?

Thanks BR. The upgrade if one chooses the exact same setup as mine is in the region of about 20-25k. Almost everything has to be imported though, not much of what has been put in is available here.

Yes, running it with the same old badge Awesome fun! With the new wheels & tyres it has lost some of its 'Q' car appeal though.

Thanks Vik!

1. Cost I've mentioned above & time taken is 2 days because the headlights & the wiring require a fair amount of work.

2. I don't think anyone makes these in Bangalore. I'll check & get back to you on that.

Appreciate your response on that raghava. Yes, if you could provide me any information on someone who can do this job just as well as yours, I would owe you one big time.

The reason I am so keen on this kind of setup was its almost as close as it Gets to making Getz headlight resemble a BMW or Skoda. I just Love the Throw on these German Cars bro. Now, we have one Korean to look out for!!

thats an awesome power for light, I would agree when you said that it forces truckers to also low their beams.

Very powerful it looks from these pictures. Can I set up similar one on my Santro ?
