    Hey dude,
    Yes u can install Relay for head light. I always install relays for head lights, i had done in Cultus too. It really increases the light beam. It will cause no damage actually Relays direct takes current from battery that`s why your lights will work efficient enough. Kaabli relay mil jati hain for arround 200 each.
    Hope this ll help you..
    Regards

    it will first eat the battery then drink its liquid


    r u sure its not a fx?

    i would not risk altering wiring of a 1.8 million car

    Get HID's in high beam or stick with originals

    Relay is like a separate connection from battery without losses ... there is no harm as long as the wiring is properly insulated and water proof ... a higher wattage bulb produces more heat if the head lights don't have adequate heat exchange (vent holes in rubber sealing) the excessive heat melts the light sealing .... but i don't think it would be a problem in new civic

    The thing, is, these new cars have relays for everything, so don't worry about that. And I mean, like horns, headlights, starters, almost everything significant. So no need to put an 'extra' relay
