    how much is enough light for driving in faisalabad is it foggy / smogy after sunset try to get after market yellow fog lamps for the bumper flushed installation.

    also can you check the wattage of OEM bulbs in the head lamps by removing the bulb what is written 00/00watt written on it - or post its clear readable picture of metallic ring.

    Bhai, Corolla ki to anna kar deni wali light hai. Woh City mai nahi mil sakti.
    The main reason is that it had two separate reflectors with separate bulbs for low and high beams. Whereas, City has got just one reflector and one tube with two coils for high and low beam.

    Secondly, you have installed HIDs in a light which is not designed for HIDs therefore the result is even worse. Yes, the car coming from the opposite side will definitely abuse you but it won't improve your visibility on the road. Either go for some very good quality HIDs which would be kinda expensive, or just switch back to the original bulbs perhaps with higher wattage.

    the oem bulbs are osram bilux, their wattage is around 55-60w, i checked with a relative's city, i guess relays and better bulbs along with headlamp adjustment will work. the hid's didnt work because the stock headlamps cannot focus the hids, you need projectors

    90/100 is ok but you need to check for the wiring it shall not overheat and deform the bulb holder. Buy a Halogen Bulb 90/100 with Blue Tint of Philips, BOSCH or Schneider may be expensive more then Rs. 200 a piece (in Karachi)

    Agreed.
    Getting HID's in stock projectors will further decrease the visibility.
    Either switch to stock bulbs or get some higher wattage bulbs is the same temp.
    As far as Corolla is concerned than its light is better due to the presence of 4 bulbs which light up simultaneously on high beam.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    Lights of honda city are not that bad. Just switch back to ur oem bulbs and throw away the hids.

    test with 4300K HIDs and do not remove any reflector built into the HID tube, it should have 2 one disc infront and one long one below it, without those reflectors you would have terrible lighting. The light will simply scatter everywhere instead of being aimed.

    projector lights produce the best light results you can have. The have very positive sharp cutoffs.
