So many choices when it comes to HIDs, which ones are best? Your experience?July 10, 2018 at 9:35 pm #2600padamdeepKeymaster@padamdeep
Well I have personally checked Osram / Quaden / TVS / Night visions for 6000 kelvin and 4200 kelvin versions. My favourite is Osram 4200 kelvin 35W but as on today not available so 2nd in line is Quaden 4300 kelvin 35w premium model.July 10, 2018 at 9:53 pm #2606mohitKeymaster@mohit

Mumbai folks can search for Autorounders and get their upgrades done
Chandigarh folks can connect to Xenon planet for theirs
Bangalore guys can visit The Drift and find the solution.July 27, 2018 at 11:07 am #3172mohitKeymaster@mohit
I have been using 55w, 5000k HID’s from DHC for app 6 months.
Can figure out some loss of lumens with time….July 27, 2018 at 11:42 am #3173padamdeepKeymaster@padamdeep
I did another round of testing yesterday and only to find the solution of placing HID in head lights is the cheapest and best option. One may need to live with some sort of ground shadow which can be completely removed with HID’s in fogs and partially by LED / Night breakers in Fogs.
Using Osrams since last 10 months and no issues at all, the light is perfect and would suggest using 35W instead of 55W power HID.
Have tried another Indian brand Quaden for some time, and fellow Jeepers are using from 2-3 months with no issues. Quaden premium as well uses the same power 35W as Osram and comes with Canbus adapter.
The BEST SOLUTION
Changing the complete projector assembly with Morimoto / alternative chinese projectors which can hold D2S will be solution to ground shadow.
Same will cost above 30k for Morimoto and Chinese may be between 15-18k.
Bangalore guys can contact The Drifts / The Automotive Lighting Experts for installation
Mumbai guys can contact The Autorounders for the solution (www.autorounders.com)

Driftz ran out of 4300K and but have 6000K in Quaden. Is it worth waiting for the 4300K (~1 month) or should I go right away with 6000K?August 6, 2018 at 6:00 pm #3980padamdeepKeymaster@padamdeep
Depends in case you are happy with 6000 kelvin color. In rains it can be a bit of a issue.August 13, 2018 at 10:04 am #4343Saroday.ashwin@saroday-ashwin
Have installed the Art HID 9005 5k 55w kit.
Your take on the same?
ThanksAugust 13, 2018 at 10:16 am #4344padamdeepKeymaster@padamdeep
Can you share some pictures of the same. The illumination in the night will help see how good it looks and may help others as well.August 13, 2018 at 10:18 am #4345Saroday.ashwin@saroday-ashwin
Sure bro. Will click and send.
