    That's a pleasant surprise. Much different to what i saw in the case of a certain Linea whose headlights were looking as if they were tinted, due to the heat of the 90/100.

    You need to use H1 for the fogs. NB+ is available for the H1 too. I have upgraded all the bulbs right from parking, low beam, high beam and also the fogs. I changed the parking light too, just to match the light shades.

    True. Though the lights are very powerful, 90/100 may not be good in longer term as it will generate excessive heat.

    Im doing some long drives on my Punto as well, and I really find the stock bulbs inadequate. I guess I will have to replace them soon. I see people here have been using Osram NB/NB+ and Philips Xtreme Power or Rally Power. Does any one have any idea about Philips Extreme Vision? I am not fascinated by white light (Philips Diamond Vision and the like) and would like the bulb to be purely brighter for safety and visibility purposes. Moreover I would like to remain with 55/60W specs.

    Experts please suggest.

    I have NB+ in both head lights & fog lights. I dont think they throw more light than the stock,However as they are more white you feel they are more brighter. Anytime Philips Rally 100/90 are better which I had in my previous Indica for 5yrs without any darkening of the headlamps.

  5. +1 to Kirenh, I am using Xtreme Power for almost a year now, but feel the light spread to be low. Now conteplating to either go with HID or some other Headlight upgrade.

    I felt more than the brightness the problem in punto is the shadow begins much before than expected. So forced to use high beam.

    I have changed my car bulbs to Philips 90/100... and also installed HELLA relay kit.. the light is excellent...
    only came to know how good it is.. when i changed it back to stock bulbs before servicing only bcoz my car was showing air bag failure in the display and i dint want the TASS to point the relay kit as the problem

  8. I am using NB for the high beam and to be honest, i cant see a single thing on the road, planning to change it to something more brighter.
