Check with AK traders in JC Road. They are known for genuine products at lower prices.
Rajan sir its Jk traders or Ak Traders? also whats your view on Osram or phillips? iam little confused
AK Traders, not JK. This one is on the first floor of a building on your right, in the third cross to the left from the first set of signals in JC Road.
I am a strong believer of OE lights and have never fitted brighter lights in any of the cars I have owned. I do not believe that blinding the oncoming traffic will help me see any better. So, not qualified to comment on which of the two is better. There are many in the forum who have upgraded and used these and obscenely brighter lights, who will be able to help you better.
But the specifications are same of OE lights right?

Even i feel brighter lights are not good.. is it possible that when i go on long drives i fit this & when i come back from my gujrath trip i fit the oe ? is this is just plug n use ?.. & removing & fitting bulbs often get defused?
Yes, I use Osram NB+ with OE wattage. It has a better beam throw and is a little more whitish. More white is good in dry weather, but in rain and fog it is awful. You can try Osram Silver Star if you do not want whiter light.
Philips also has similar options but am not sure of the names.
I think they are. But they claim to be brighter nevertheless. I am comfortable with the factory fitted lights, find them more than adequate and have never upgraded. So my knowledge in this area is almost next to nil. The only reason I responded to your question, is to suggest an alternate vendor, who might be able to give you better prices.
Yes i like yellow light thats the reason read few review philips extreme vision is yellow light
Osram NB has less life compared to OE. Both of my headlight bulbs blew off with in a year, i mean the high beam filaments. but the OE is still going good after 2 years. Not sure about Philips.If you travel a lot during night i would recommend to stick with OE. The low beam of both OE and Osram had almost same lighting and beam throw or that is what i felt.
OSRAM Night Braker Vs Philips x-treme vision 100%
Based on reviews I believe
- OSRAM Night Brakers --- >
Failure were seen on an average of 400 to 500 hr
- X-treme vision --> No Failures but lighting is not at par with OSRAM
Yesterday night I have replaced my fog lamps with - OSRAM Night Brakers (H1) costed 1K.. these are good. Now I'm planning to change head-lamp (H4) to my punto.
Decided to go for X-treme vision. I have checked with multiple auto garage and they charge approx - Rs: 1200 to 1300.
Major confussion is I see many varients of philips x-treme vision, I really need your help.
