    Hi all,
    I want to know from guys who had fit new bulbs for headlights(100/90 or above - basically which needs a wirring kit and relay). When I enquired about how the the wiring will be done, the mechanics they told as part of the process they need to cut the dust pads (not sure of the exact name though - a rubber cups which cover the rear of the headlights) for inserting the bulb holders of the wiring kit. I asked whether it can't be routed the way the OEM wires path. They said it is not possible and this is the way they do it for Verna & punto/linea it seems. Need your comments on this.

    If that is the only way then, wont dust/water particles enter the headlights? Will it not be problem for mist/fog getting created in inside the headlights?

    A little bit of dust pad (a rubber cap that covers the back side part which cap we remove to change bulbs) was cut to allow the wires to pass when I upgraded the bulbs of my punto and it was already a year passed after installing the new bulbs I don't see any signs of dust particles entering into the h/l assembly.

    Didn't want to start a new thread, so posting my query here -

    Been running the below configuration for 3 years now :-

    Lo Beam - Narva - 80W H7 - White Light
    Hi Beam - Narva - 100W H1 - Yellow Light

    My high beam is absolutely fine, I want to change the low beams H7's as I don't think they are effective any more.

    Suggestions open for what's "hot" in the market now. Would prefer to avoid 'white' light this time. This is also why I am not too keen on going the HID way.

    I'm actually planning on one as well. Actually im looking to downgrade from 110/130 to 90/100 or 90/110.
    The current bulbs are just too powerful and generate too much of heat i'm worried about the lens blackening (Although i've not seen anything like that yet)

    Praful best option you can go for with the stock bulb rating is either Osram Night Breaker plus or Philips Extreme Vision. They should be available for H7. Osram is having slightly more whitish tint than Philips. The price would be on the higher side though. Else a cheaper option would be to fix a relay & upgrade the bulb rating. Hope you reflectors are in good condition.
