    I use Philips extreme power. I wouldn't say they are very good but "slightly better" than the stock bulbs.
    I dint see much improvement from stock as read in forums.

    Reviews suggest Philips extreme power is better than Osram Night breakers.

    I got replaced my Palio 1.2 High-Beam bulbs.

    Stock Model --- HALONIX H1 12 V 55 W

    New Model --- HENKEL H1 12 V 100 W (Made In Germany), have not used any wiring or relay, will this have any side-effects ?

    In city driving I could not find much difference, i feel there is a need to change the throw. Any idea how to achieve this ?

    Thanks

    You may have electrical overload, and if the service center guys notice this, they may record this as evidence for denying warranty to electrical components.

    Thanks guys

    Mechanic told me there is no need to add relay and he had installed these bulbs on many cars that had stock ratings below 60W.

    However, instead of taking chances, i will have the relay installed.

    Can we adjust the throw of the light ? I somehow get a feeling that high beam is showing me the sky :lol:

    I understand you are using a Roots relay, could you please provide some feedback on this relay.

    I think stock should have come with relay as well ? My car does not have a fog lamps, due to this mechanic told i can run the H1 without relay :confused

    I'm planning to buy the relay via net and DIY

    Thanks

    Have been using the roots relay with 100/90 bulbs for more than an year now. No problems so far. higher wattage bulbs==more current. So you will need a relay to be on the safer side+ceramic holders for the bulb to withstand the extra heat generated by these bulbs.

    I have asked my mechanic to get me a RELAY ASAP. Sunday getting installed the relay.

    I just came back from tirupati, felt low beam is sufficient to drive, high beam is good to tell opp traffic to put off high beam ;)

    Thanks
