  1. Hello, I have been driving a i10 for the last 3 1/2 yrs and had a hatch before that for 3 yrs as well. Now I guess its time for me to take the leap, move to a SUV and this time not selling the current hatch for small errands and city use. Apart from driving a Innova a few hundred kms on several trips, I have no experience of driving a hatch and so when i decided to buy one for our small family I though it was best to ask the experts for advise. My budget is in the range of 22-25L and I am looking for something with good interiors, a decent list of gadgets and features. I wont be off roading, so I am not looking for a monster, but good/large interiors would be of help. I wont be loading 7 people always when we travel, but a good 3rd row will help for extra space and stuff to carry. I would like to buy in around Mar/April '13 on one of the festive ocassions. No other stringent requirements, so please help me decide what options should i start looking at, cos the list of available SUVs in the market is just confusing the hell out of me. I am keen to hear from one and all..and if you also went through a shortlisting & decision cycle to shortlist your SUV, then please share that, so it may b just help me align my thoughts as well. I appreciate the help ..all fellow car enthusiasts and experts. Ash

    I am planning to go for Bi-Xenons for my i10. H4 Type. I am told that you don't need any Fog Lamps after that I was advised the foll: Highway Driving: 4300 K (OEM yellow light) 35W is good and 55 W will give 20% more light. For more City Driving: 6000K (White Light) also has 35W and 55W. 35W- 10,000 with fitting in Mumbai and 1 Yr warranty (Delhi price is 8,500) 55W 13,500 with fitting in Mumbai and 1 Yr warranty I am keen for a 4300K as I prefer the yellow tinge light and need the longer throw that this has over the 6000K. Bu tI need a 55W light.. PLEASE ADVISE

  10. headlights for hyundai i10

    Hello All, After a long gap..and sicne I dont see any conclusion to this discussion here is my question.. Can you please advise what HID/Xenon Kit can I install in my i10. Pls suggest name of the kit. Does i10 have the facility to have halogens along with the Xenons? Do I need fog lamps once I get the HID installed? I also came across this link through carwale.com which talks about Bi-Xenons. "Earlier versions of Xenon lights could not be used for flashing while overtaking. HID lights they take time to get to full brightness. To eliminate this problem the newer bulbs come with integrated Halogens in the same HID bulbs. These can be flashed while overtaking. Hence the Name Bi-Xenons." Has installed these?? AshAshTheDash2009-11-18 01:59:10
