    @Amit Rox Pl proceed with the purchase of philips xtremevision plus 60/55w H4.

    So I'm back from 3000+ kms drive. Two full nights driven in highways two, single lane roads. Take my words. These bulbs have vastly improved visibility. I'm a happy man after this change. The linea has two separate bulbs for low high whereas punto evo has a single bulb having both in it. Learnt from service persons how to change as I may need them during long hauls in cases of emergencies.

    @Amit Rox If i'm not wrong H7 will not fit Punto evo headlight assembly. Only H4 60/55W will be straight plug and play without any issue with warranty.
    I find them yellow only although specification says shade of of white upto 20%.

    have you gone for wheel alignment?
    have done WA on 5000kms but from outside shop. I will be doing WA after every 5000kms and WB whenever there is need.

    Hi @Amit Rox I bought it from philips wholesale dealer at Rs.600/ piece against online price of Rs.800/piece Saved Rs.400 in total. I got contact number of the dealer from philips website. Better to do it that way. I found this dealer at Jammu in Philips website on Retailers all over India VS Traders F-96, Lower Shiv Nagar,(Near AG's Office)180004Jammu, Jammu And Kashmir Mobile No. 9419180666.Else check in snapdeal, amazon where it is available. remember to buy xtremevision plus not just xtremevision.
    So far I have not done any WB or WA. ODO reads 9800 kms. I know I have to do it. Last month was hectic. Went for a 2300+ kms to Vizag and then 2800+ kms to Mumbai. Will be trying to do it this week.

    I didn't do it myself. Actually I learnt how to do when FASC did it in my car from service center. You have to open bonnet. First use a good torch to see the assembly from inside of bonnet. Remove round black rubber like cap provided for the light assembly. This round cap is for protection from dust, water entering HL assembly. Then find Three clips in 60 Deg angles to each other present which are to be unclipped. Then remove stock osram bilux and place your philips EV+. Press it to get it locked. Place your stock bulbs in the philips cover well protected.

    Regarding light colour quality, High beam is Yellow. Low beam contains bit of white in it.

    P.S: Suggestion is go to service center. Service persons did it for free. Tell them I need to learn this basic requirement as a need for long drives.

    Yesterday I did my WA and WB at an outside shop. Nothing alarming. Did tyre rotation of FL to RL and FR to RR.
    So everything is normal. Am I right in this rotation?

    @KPR in my opinion yellow headlights and white fog lamps look awkward .
    yes u did it right, the tyre rotation.
    I will be doing tyre rotation on 10k kms.
    --- Double Post Merged, Feb 3, 2016 ---
    @KPR do u feel any need to upgrade your tyre. Except for road noise everything seems good.
    I think puting 205 tyre will only enhance the beauty of this beast.
    what you say ?

    @Amit Rox Indeed these tyres create a lot of noice. Bear with it until 30k kms. Then change them to Michelin for smooth rides. In fact Alnac tyres are good for Leh Ladakh drives. Being in Jammu you can do it with your beast.
    Regarding tyre size, I haven't tried anything new even in my previous cars. I'm not an expert in such things. You can anyway check other forums as well.

    I don't worry about mix of colour in lights. I need better view while driving.
