    Default City 2010 Headlight Tubes Replacement

    I want to replace the OE Osram Halogen tubes in my City 2010. I am looking for Phillips Xtreme-Power, Phillipps Diamond Vision or Osram Nightbreakers, but cant seem to find them anywhere. The only option available is Phillips Rally H4 90/100 Watts tubes and that too a Chinese copy I think.

    My questions are:-


    1. Is it safe to install 90/100 watts in a 55/60 watt housing? since the heat generated will be twice as much. Anyone who has installed these in their City 2010 (or any other vehicle), please advise.
    2. Anyone knows where i can get the above mentioned halos in Pakistan? I'm aware of the import option, so just want to know if they are available locally.

    <input id="gwProxy" type="hidden"><!--Session data--><input onclick="if(typeof(jsCall)=='function'){jsCall();} else{setTimeout('jsCall()',500);}" id="jsProxy" type="hidden">

    Yea I heard the same, thinking now of ditching the Rally bulbs till I get my hands on Phillips x-treme Power or OSRAM Nightbreakers. Better be safe than sorry.

    Sir, the stock wiring in most cars worldwide (and all cars in Pakistan) is meant for 55/60 watt OE lights only. Anything more than that requires aftermarket heavy duty wiring harnesses and/or relays. Since I want to keep my car stock as much as possible Im not looking to do all that.

    Anything "not" installed by the manufacturer is considered "after market". You can call it stock or whatever, if you must.
