    Default How to improve 11th generation Corolla Pathetic Lighting.

    Assalam - o -alikum to all fellows. I hope everyone is fine and enjoying life with good health.

    I have been driving New corolla for the past 4 months and i personally feel that its headlights are pathetic for night driving specially on highways in south punjab and sindh. Can anyone please guide how can i improve lights for good visibility at night without voiding warranty and without putting extra load on original wiring and headlight glass. Thanks

    I hope this thread would help alot of new corolla owners.

    Thanks.

    Hid projectors are the way to go. If you dont want to retrofit them in the main headlight, buy some cheap aftermarket foglamps and retrofit the projectors into them.

    Bro go for Philips diamond vision halogen bulbs. They are way better than Chinese HIDs.
    They will cost you around 3K to 4K for pair. A PW member is also selling Philips bulbs, do check buyer & seller forums.

    10th gen ki stock lights to hid walun ko bhi andha ker deti hai high beam pe

    Check if its individual issue of ur car or a general issue Talk to other 11 gen owners first. If its an isolated issue of ur car, sort it out in warranty. In other case install narva or phlps bulbs.

    No they are not H4.

    High beam =HB3
    Low Beam=HB4

    Btw there might be some problem with your car head lamps, because for the first time, i am hearing this problem in PKDM Corolla.

    Actually my travelling is at N5 from rahimyar khan to daharki and those roads are without cat eyes and divider but full of huge pot holes, massive sugarcane trolleys and bikes coming out of wrong direction without any light and considering themselves 'jai bhaiya' from Dhoom 5 . Thats where low beam also feels insufficient.
