    Default City IDsi-Headlights

    1. The original Headlights on the Honda City are quite dim and it is quite hard to see anything clearly on wet roads or on two lane roads with on coming traffic. It is a real pain not to mention dangerous.

    Can Anyone suggest headlight bulbs that would improve the lighting of the City while no requiring any modifications to the car's headlight lamp housing or electrical system

    well i hav changed the bulbs.the original r 65w (or 65v) nd i put in 90w.just go to any original parts seller nd tell him to give u 90w bulb for ur car.this increase the light considerably.nd thats 120rs each.

    the other thing u can do is to put fog lamps in the bumpers.or if u hav money,just put hid in the geniun lights.that wud b more then enough.

    @asif
    removing that cover will cause randon scattering of the light.u might increase the light intensite but u wont b able to see anything clearly.bcuz all the bumps nd ridges in the headlights design r there to ensure that the lights is always there where u need it.

    Is there anything that can be done to improve the Head Lighting of Honda CIty 2007. I prefer not to modify the existing electrical wiring of the car and installing a relay would require alteration to the wiring.

    Is there a better quality bulb that anyone can suggest for a Honda City.

    appreciate your feedback

    Yup right, i don't think u should install relays. What model is your city. Make sure the headlight glass is not pale (could be a problem in old models). Increasing power through relay would also increase heat it produces.
    The very first thing u should do is adjust the beam so that points in the right direction. As i mentioned i have a City 2008, a good friend of mine has a 2006 model and none have faced any issues regarding headlights. Ofcourse low beam provides less light (since it is pointed in downward direction) but high beam is very powerful and goes a long way.

    Also if the bulbs are not original than u should put original bulbs in it.
