You can try www.powerbulbs.com

They do free shipping to India amd usually run a 25% discount campaign.

Totally worth the money.

You can try Osram NB Laser (2nd Gen) or Philips Racing Vision (I'm using H4 version of this in my car for the past 1 year; really good performance)

Powerbulbs stopped free shipping to India sometime ago and charge close to 8 pounds for shipping.

Oh, my bad. I didn't make a purchase from there in the last 6 months; so not entirely aware of the scenario. Thanks for the update. :thumbup:

Please check if this is the 2nd Gen NB Laser. Coz the first gen NB Laser had some bulb burnout issues.

The 2nd gen NB Laser will be marked as +150% light output on the box. Thats your way of identifying against the 1st gen NB Laser.

Hey all,

I'm curious to know if it's possible to switch from HID bulbs to LED bulbs or vice versa in a retrofit projector setup (i.e. headlights modified from the OEM reflector setup to a projector setup)?

If it is possible, what additional modifications would it require?

With the various LED types/sizes/brands - any particular brand offering a minimal modification / plug-and-play solution? Especially, when switching to LEDs in an HID-projector setup?

LEDs if you have a HID projector will be a downgrade in intensity and spread. Why do you want to go for them? Also the Aftermarket HID projectors generally have a very thin opening for taking in the HID bulb which may not fit the generally larger LEDs we get. It all depends on what projector you have but yes in short LEDs will be a downgrade.

HI Guys,
I have a query,
I replaced my Rapid's fog lamp bulb (H8/11) today.

I put the Osram Night Breaker Unlimited 55 watt bulb.
The stock fog lamp bulb is 35 watt.
I know about the heating issues of higher wattage bulb, I am not much concerned about that, other then this, is there any other thing, i need to worry about? Like, Wiring, Fuse, Switches etc.
Is there any other precaution to avoid any issues later?

H8 bulbs generally do not come in 55w. Where did you buy yours from?

Osram Night breaker unlimited H11,
12 V, 55 W.
My concern is it should not create issue for Wiring, Fuse, Switch etc.
