Anyways, I heard that white/blue light is not good in rains, so would really like to know what you experience. If that's not a problem i'll definitely change the stock bulbs.
You are right allhyundaicars, colour temp above 4300K is not good for rain and fog. Lower the temp better the visibility. Yesterday I drove in a foggy weather at around 6-7pm and I had to slow down to 3rd (20-30kmpl). So, IMO
one has to consider the climate and choose accordingly. But I am happy with my selection. I suppose Osram night breaker plus has a colour temp of ~ 4000K. @Karma
Yes I'v done it by my self. Heres how?
Open the hood and stand in front of the vehicle. Now consider there is a clock facing towards you.
Rotate the cap clock wise and take it out.
Now you can see the bottom part of the bulb where the long arm of L is facing downward.
Now rotate it gently clockwise the same way you opened the cap. At around 10 o'clock position it will come out. Be extra gentle while taking out the bulb.
To disconnect the wiring connector firmly press the hook which is located at the bottom part, hold on to it and pull downwards. Now the bulb is free.
Right side is a tricky business but i did it in the same way. If you face problem then take out the headlight screws and loosen the headlamp then do the procedure. Take a note:
These bulbs are sides specific, I mean left should go to left and right to right. I'v checked the bulb for any visible markings but none (IN MY CASE), so if it is in your case too then you will only know when you install it and test it at night. You will know if its correctly installed or not by seeing the light throw.
