You can use them,since they are 55/60 W.i replaced to Philips by myself.the cost was 825 bucks in chennai

I read in the auto lighting thread in t bhp that Philips have a little niche over osram in rain conditions.thats why i bought it.now need to check again as you have said its good.moreover all worldwide punto forums also suggested Philips Xtreme.thats the problem

car has gone to vst motors for a big defect..the front bumper had a small bulge which was there during delivery.then i realised that it looked a bit odd.so i wanted them to rectify.but VST people started saying that i had bumped it somewhere.then after sending the pics i had taken during delivery,they have approved it.Now they will be changing my bumper.also the roof and bonnet will get a respray.The body work done by them earlier(after a week from delivery,due to an incident that happened at a parking yard) was bad.they have promised delivery on monday eve.will keep you guys posted.

guys sorry for the delay in updating the thread.
Done with my first service on December second week.The service was done by Concorde Ambattur even though i bought the car from VST.kudos to concorde guys.everything was done really well except for the washing and polishing.BTW my car had no niggles.So no issues.But i asked them not to touch my K&N during service.Then i took it to them again last week,to get some small rattles and squeaks corrected.wow,the result amazing.all done free of cost obviously.I would give a big thumps up to concorde if you want to do a paintjob..they are really good.

Just read your thread.
Everything looks awesome on your car.
Where did you get your door handles and ORVM's painted and how much did it cost?

And the vinyls on your front grill, is it a black tape?
