Yes it was worth the upgrade.

Iíll tilt it more and see. But for now Iím getting a decent spot on a wall.

Thanks for the observation

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

I am looking to upgrade the low beam LEDs for 2018 Innova Crysta. I find it is throw and power quite less. Please suggest options.

The low beam LEDs cant be changed unfortunately. They are sealed LED projectors and only possibility is to open up the headlight assembly and replace the projector itself, which is not an easy job considering the tools and expertise required for the same.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

In Crysta, can we wet clean the AC filter material by splashing water? When rubbing the fingers, i could see black carbon deposits. Hence the question.

No please replace the AC filter if its so dirty. Since its a paper based filter, washing by water isnt going to work and it will either ruin the filter or reduce its performance.

Can’t replace the low beam projector as already mentioned by BHPian audioholic.

But what you can do to increase the throw is increase the height of the beam with the help of the screws provided for doing the same.

Although please ensure you do this with another Crysta beside yours with the same low beam setup because if the height of the beam is increased by a big margin, it will start hitting the on-coming traffic.

Hello sir,
I donít think the height of the beam can be adjusted manually, at least on the Crysta which are having the projector setup.
They come with auto levelling headlights which adjust the beam automatically according to the speed of the vehicle.
This is as per my understanding of the same. Please correct me if this is wrong.

Thank you.

You are right about the automatic levelling. The headlights are levelled automatically based on the dip in the rear suspension so that weight at the rear of the vehicle wont cause the headlight to tilt upward and cause glare. However, there is manual adjustment possible at each headlight to sort of calibrate the position and it can be adjusted like any other headlight. I have done that and raised the low beam by a bit so that the beam cutoff line isnt too close to the car which happens in the OE configuration. I prefer the beam cutoff to fall a the edge of the horizon of the road which makes it almost flat but with a slight dip. Without this I felt the Low beam is too low which makes high beam mandatory as speeds increase.

Some latest pics of my car lights as requested by a member earlier. All pictures taken with exposure lock so there are no adjustments between pictures and you can see the interior clock brightness for reference:

Thank you for the information.
If possible, would you be able to post on how to adjust the headlights manually. It would be of great help. I actually did once ask the person in the service centre to adjust the height of the beam and he was like it comes with auto levelling headlights and also did search on YouTube about the adjustment, but was unable to find any.
So, it would be of great help if you could post about how to do it.

Thank you in advance.

Is it difficult complex to upgrade fog light?

Pls. suggest a good workshop In Chennai or Bangalore, if you know.

Thanks!
Its the Standard 3" that Toyota uses globally. I have a 21 Model and got 4Runner fogs fitted that i got from the US

I called the accessory guy at Toyota who did the work initially to come home and do it. Paid him 500 bucks for that.

Sorry, this is neither the right thread nor the same car. But I can barely find anything online regarding Vredestein.

I'm planning to replace my Apollo alnacs 4G on my Hyundai i20 active to Vredestein Ultrac, same as stock size. Can you throw some light on their performance, grip, any issues you might have faced, highway noise?

Anything else which you think is worth mentioning regarding Vredesteins.

I'm confused between this, Continental UC6 and Yoko bluEarth.

Thanks -NA
