My 202 BHP S-Cross gets more updates: New Bi-Xenon headlamps & foglamps

It's been more than 2 months since the light upgrade. The output is great and a highly recommended upgrade for pre-facelift S-Cross Alpha.

BHPian Dr.Naren recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

I didn't update the thread for quite some time now. The reason is I was busy driving to different places. I drove to Mumbai, Aurangabad, Kochi, Munnar, and Alleppey. ODO is up by 6000 km since the last update and it is nearing 90k km now. There are a couple of updates to post, will share the light upgrade which was done in May.

Light Upgrade: IPH D2H Bi-Xenon Projector in Headlight + IPH Bi-Xenon Fog Projector!!

I was running with an XP Micro fog projector which is basically an IPH fog projector with an XP sticker. The output had diminished as the projectors were almost 5 years old. I decided to get the lights upgraded during a trip to Mumbai. Got it done at Xenon, the same place where I had got the projector setup done in Baleno.

Xenon had worked on a couple of S-Cross Alphas, the owner himself owns S-Cross. Hence I did not have any concerns about the eye operation of my S-Cross.

I got the same IPH D2H projectors which I had installed in Baleno.

I did not click many pics during the installation. Just a few WIP pics.

The new projectors were flush fit. Installation was not difficult. I got the headlights smoked too.

IPH Bi-Xenon fog projectors were also installed. We used a 65W Zimmer HID kit.

Fog projectors were also easy and clean to install. The overall installation took around 3 hours.

I was very impressed with the light output, it's massive.

Do note that these are Bi-Xenon projectors, there won't be any issue with the oncoming traffic when the projectors are in low beam, just need to get the alignment right.

I enjoyed the 1000+ km night drive to Bangalore. It was effortless. I did many night drives after this upgrade.

A few pics clicked at my farm, I find the smoked headlight looks very hot.

It's been more than 2 months since the light upgrade. The output is great and a highly recommended upgrade for pre-facelift S-Cross Alpha.
