    Thanks a lot guys.

    Get it installed yesterday. Installed Roots wiring kit for 680/- (with relay) and Philips Rally 130/110w bulbs for 420/-. So all done for 1200/- with installation.

    Relay is must with 100/90 bulbs , get Relay which can withstand 130/140 watt bulbs . Moreover 100/90 will not harm reflector .
    The white 100/90 bulbs are coated with blue tint on glass , so it in turn reduces the light output . If white light is main objective than HID kit is for you .
    What about warranty ? any ideas....
    130w Bulbs will blacken the reflector in long run unlike 100/90.

    I got the relay with mentioned capability to withstand 130/110 W bulbs. I know in long run, it will blacken the reflectors but i am okay with it. I am not a big fan of white light and i also think it disturbs ongoing traffic more than yellow light. Planning to change Fog lights now and thinking of replacing it with old OSRAM night breaker. :p

    Thanks for your input though.

    I have already done night long drives many a times with 130/90W bulbs no blackening of reflectors.

    I usually dim when I see the oncoming traffic, but, when some morons don't dim their lamps then I switch over to high again.
