      Buy an RDD 90/100 kit, bang worth for money. Then plonk a 60/55 from Philips Extreme or 60/55 of Osram 4300K & you'll certainly start blinding the cars

      If you feel its expensive, then, I've got only one thing to say - Cheap & Fast is not Reliable, Cheap & Reliable is not Fast, Fast & Reliable is not Cheap.

          Revenge or not, but I'm serious, these days on a high beam, I'm able to find out the shirt pattern type of the guy who's coming on the opposite direction & mostly it with trucks!!!

            @AARGEE
            is that rd dreams kit you are taking about/i heard of this kit from shriram efunds once and i suppose he is using that in his bike.why 90/100 kit then use 55/60?why not 90/100 bulb?
            also imho as i have used all the so called premuim bulbs from phillips and osram,namely phillips extream power/bluevision or night breaker or silver star,those bulbs are good but not as good as they cost.try to get your self any oem bulb of any car like maruti or mahindra.they are 55/60 h4 type,avl in oem packaging from delar it self,costs a fraction and here comes the kicker,they match at least 90 percent of the output of those so called premium bulbs.
            the bulb will look like these ,comes in pair,in my personal opinion ,go with mahindra and tata,they offer the best quality bulbs i have seen,

              Reason is because...
              1. The regulator is capable of handling 60/55 or more, but not anything less
              2. Most importantly, when the engine idles 60/55 lights up like a battery power, means, no flickering or dimming & once the throttle opens up, there's seldom change in the output. But with 90/100, on idle, the light is dim & once the throttle opens up, the light is bright.
              3. IIRC, legally, 90/100's banned & there're quite chances that the cops might fine unnecessary for 90/100, although not sure on this front.

              Well, give me sometime to confirm. I did change from Philips 60/55 H4 to Philips 60/55 Extreme & found the output is almost unchanged, but the throw of the latter is really excellent. Gives a very long throw compared to the former.

              Most of the OE bulbs are OK; The very first bulb I experimented was from my WagonR's Philips 60/55. But the stock bulbs of any car (like Santro or Innova for that matter) are real crap, they aren't as good as after market bulbs. The Philips Xtreme that I bought now, is almost good as my current WagonR's 100/130 head lamps in terms of throw.

              I heard a good review on Osram 4300K that it throws white light. I'm yet to test that.

                thanks argee for your prompt ans.

                yes i agree that these premium bulbs are having better throw then other regular bulbs.
                these bulbs heat up less.
                phillips ones are bit more robust as compared osram.

                white or whiter light is actually no good compared to regular color.they seems bighter but in reality they are not.it may sound funny but you have to try them over to realize .
                also if possible read this...drvmtm: All about Halogen bulbs

                as per 90/100 yes those are not legal in strict terms but its not legal to even change anyother part from manufacture specified.

                ps. check ur inbox.

                  Well, from what I've heard from people who use it (but on cars) is that, white is good when the atmosphere/environment is clear, means, no smoke, fog or even rains. During rains, the white light gets scattered while the colored ones do not. Its actually wierd & I (still) cannot believe this!!!

                      You cannot have the cake & eat it, you've to choose what you need & prioritize things. Like I bought a RDD CDI 2009 Sep & got the dyno in May 2010, but was able to get everything working only by Aug 2010. Things takes its own sweet time unless you have a lots of moolah!!!

                        White light has poor penetration in rain and fog condition,and when i used it in city(in a Lancer) a policeman told me it is not allowed,and asked me to remove it....Vitamin "M"....don't we all need it .

                          So what I've been told is right, white light is not permitted, however, its equivalent of Bi-Xenon or HID's are well permitted, provided they're under 4300K (not sure) or so. Otherwise, it has to be a factory fitted one.

                            4300K doesnot qualify as a white light it is more on the light yellow side....
                            and most of the HIDs or bixenons which we use are 4300k that is why the
                            cops dont have a problem with it.... i have been using one from the past one
                            month...

                            the crystal white light goes when you go above 5000k of color temperature.
