    Upgraded to Philips Rally 100/90, with Philips relay. Costed Rs. 1600 with labour. Immediate impression was it's much brighter than OEM. It's worth the upgrade.

    One question. Does the Philips relay comes with a ceramic holder

    @Praveenuva thats intersting find and glitch is 6500k color temp. It will be too bright and will be useless in monsoon IMO.

    I dont think you will get a very good beam with those lights ! LEDs with projector are a better option, mainly for aux lamps.

    Please avoid blue lamps. I think the government should ban lamps >4500K or so.
    1. Blue lamps impair the vehicle driver's visibility.
    2. They also impair the visibility of oncoming vehicles and other road users because of the high scatter.
    These effects are accentuated in rainy/misty /foggy conditions.
    Please stick to yellow/ halogen lamps.
    I have got Philips X-treme Vision for the dipper lamp.

    I want to upgrade my Punto's headlamps to Philips 90/100 with Roots wiring harness and ceramic holders. Can anyone please suggest a good car shop in Bangalore to buy and get it fitted?

    Iam using 90/130 from last 2yrs and couple of days back i observed left headlamp is getting dull... So its 90/100 or 130 after couple of years your headlamp will get dull... So whenever u r in idling switch to parking lights and wherever ever u have bright Street lights switch to parking lights and switch on fog lamps so that u can postpone ur headlamps getting dull....

    @Pradeepms . Did you follow the same ? Or this happened as you didnt follow the steps of switching off the HL at stationary condition ? Have been using 90/100 for last few months, havnt observed any effect as of now, but would be helpful to know.
