    I'm running on phillips 90/110 inside the head lamp assy .. I feel its sufficient but i like the idea of varun.
    I'm planning on getting them installed but will use it only when i go out of station ..
    Such a low placing would not harm the oncoming traffic as well.. (But it ruin's the look of the car)

    Hi Akshay!
    I am afraid I don't have any more pictures to share because I have done the job during the night and I didn't have a good camera then.
    I haven't seen BIW bumper mounting for Linea but assuming the it would be similar to Punto, I am sharing some drawings of the brackets that I have used.

    @akshay: Awesome coverage and well lit, can you move out of car and tell us how does the on coming vistor would feel. I hope this doesnt blind oncoming traffic. I always like brighly lit road, but problem is the oncoming traffic doesnt :p

    I use to think of putting lights in the lower grill section, complete lower grill replaced by a big block of lights :)

    ^^ +100 to that. 8 lights, will of course blind the oncoming traffic. Viny, you are a nice fella, thinking of just putting a block of lights. I have always wanted to carry an air pistol with me, so I can shoot those lights out :evil:

    Couple of years back, driving back from Sabarimala, we encountered thick fog. So thick, that I could only guess where the road was. So, we pulled over and then decided on this strategy. A friend got off the car and started walking in the middle of the road with a lit torch light in his hand. I followed him at ~ 5 kmph, with just the parking lights on. Lesson learnt - given really really bad conditions, no amout of lights will help :D

    Hella's have a narrow and long beam,and i have directed them towards the road,and no they do not blind the traffic at all.
    @patchysir,Stock already has 6 so i just moved +2,and they are pointed towards the road,and they do not blind the oncoming traffic,but i also believe in the saying,when in rome,do as the romans do,so i dont mind blinding the random jerk who wont switch beams.

    @akshay: Cool :) I might try something in near future, though currently many of the car owners ask me to dip the light even when its on LOW, I even went to service station to check if the beams are directed in right way :p I guess linea lights are good by default in city, but not so great in open roads, where we need that extra coverage.

    I hope this is the right thread to post this query.
    I cannot upload images from office, so will only use words.

    I want to have a switch for my DRLs, but I hate the normal switches which are fixed to the dashboard but cutting a hole.
    I have the old Emotion variant. On the centre console of the dash, I have the rear defogger ans 5 other dummy switches.
    Can I use them as switches. If yes, how? The dealer says that the only way is to buy the Active's complete switch assy for 1500/-
    I somehow don't trust him. Isn't there any way we can use those switches?
    If I buy the complete assy, defogger switch will not be available to me since this button/switch is absent in Active?

    Mods please move this to another thread if this is irrelevant here.
