    I have a question regarding the HID Projector setup on a PUNTO, can someone help answer?

    Given the Single Barrel Headlight on Punto, i understand that a Bi XEXON projector is required to switch between High and low beams. I also understand that HID's take a long time to illuminate, lets say it's atleast 10 sec.

    Now, i am a person who uses the dipper a lot. Yes, even during the day to warn pedestrians and bikers who try to jump in and cross the road from every possible break on the median.

    Now, with the HID lights taking their own time to light up, how would i be able to use the dipper during the day when the low beam is not turned ON?

    This is the main drawback when you use Projector HIDs in single barrel headlights and even I was also facing this problem.

    I would not recommend you to use flash projector HIDs in day time as it wont illuminate full, chances that HIDs will stop working due to frequent use of dipper in day time as they wont illuminated completely.

    OK, so that sounds like a major drawback and i will have to stay away from Projectors.

    Well there is something called projectors with hallogens. The same as on safari storme etc. They have normal high power halogen bulbs in them with projector lenses. They can operate the same way as we do in our cars right now, cheers :)

    How do the halogen projectors perform when compared to the hid one's? Is the lighting improvement worth the expense?

    Italia-Linea,

    I must say you've done loads of hard-work and research for this stuff. Boy, its one fine piece you are having now...

    Question: Where I can get the Projector Headlights for Linea fitting in Pune? Can you recommend anyone or any shop?

    After looking into this can't wait to get this done on my car ;);)

    Kedar, Thanks a lot for your response and info... :)

    Can you provide any additional tips before going the fitting? Any specific brand instrument, bulbs, wiring? How much it cost?

    Have you also got the projector headlights done for your car? Can you share the photos please?

    Hi kedarbendre, Hi All,

    Can you recommend Angel Eyes or is there any other alternative for Linea?
    Also, for the lights of inner and outer rings of Projector which I should go, I've Linea in Sunbeam Beige color.

    Your suggestions are much much needed :(

    Thank you,

    NK
