    Default NEED SUGGESTIONS FOR Civic lights?

    Aoa n hello every one. I'm a very causal pak wheel user but really need some expert opinions n suggestions. THANKS IN Advance.

    I'm having a civic 2003 Exi Prosmetic as family sedan for last 10 years.
    Car kept in good condition but obviously materials worn out with age.

    Now I use this car alot n i really feel like my light on the road is almost nil. I really faced problems on highways n motorways with zero visibility.

    Search a lot about some bulbs n Hids n blah blah but stillnt able any thing to choose from.

    Now I need suggestions from u guys for a reasonable high emitting lights bulbs or any thing for better visibility n for long range on the road in a very reasonable price as car is still my Dad's liability n I'm still a student can't spend like 30k just on lights . but I really like 4300k temp as seen on Internet.
    :-)

    I really appreciate ur quick responses as im planing a road trip to Karachi after this eid thanks.

    Brother do not spend anything much on lights.

    Your headlight housing needs cleaning and any detailing / polish shop will buff them for rupees 500-1000 max with a good detailer like turtle / macquirs etc from the outside if the glass housing / weather shield is intact and dust has not gone into the inner side.

    Can u post the pictures of your headlights?

    The original cateye prosmatec had a single beam with 55W HB2 bulb.

    The eagle had dual beam 60W for high and 55W low.

    Anyway a good Osram 55W bulb will do the job better than OEM buld and should cost you no more than 700 rupees.

    Thanks for ur replies.

    Yea I tried cleaning it with some tooth paste(seen on u tube) n all but there are some rough surface specially on the upper part of the lights n thy feel a bit yellowish now.

    I had a bad experience with buffing these plastic lights on my other car so at the moment im just trying to have some new bulbs or Hids.

    The shops in the area I roam around having very cheap Chinese bulbs n all so Im not satisfied with them
    Can u guide me where can I get genuine osram bulbs n other options too?
    I heard some phillips high quality bulbs n all wht do u think do thy really work?
    As i also wana go for some 4300k temp if i get an option?

    Brother the real thing is the reflector and halogen housing sharpness and brightness which reflects the lights.

    Have u ever imagined how bright the lights of a new cultus swift or Xli are when they are new despite having a 500 rupees bulb.

    I would again advise you to go to a professional detailer who will buff the car.

    You do not want to do that then any rupees 3000 chinese HID will do the work they are all close 4500K.

    I do not think u could find Philips or Osram bulb at your place and people will try to rip u off by selling fake stuff.

    You can also go to bilal gunj and buy a new pair of headlights for 2000 rupees

    AOA,

    The simplest way out.
    1-Buy & install new bulbs Honda 3s should have them.
    2-If techsavy install a power relay and wire the headlights direct from battery via the relay.

    Over period of time the wiring gets old and does not provide the required current to bulbs.

    I am sure this will address your problem.
