In the 60/55 category I have been told that the Philips Xtreme Vision bulbs are really good.

If you new bulbs are the same as the stock bulbs there won't be any warranty problems.Also retain the stock bulbs, they can be used in case of an emergency.

Just make sure any bulb you buy emits yellow light.White light will be horrible in the rains.

To find the best prices,compare the prices with a lot of accessory shops.

You can find these on JC road.It should cost you around Rs 800.Hard bargaining helps.

The brightness is the same as compared to the Philips Xtreme Vision.

The life of the bulbs really comes down to amount of usage.Both these bulbs have the same life expectancy of 1 1/2 -2 years.

If you do a lot of Night time driving then go for the Osram NB else go with Philips.Neither one of the companies guarantees the life of their bulbs.

Would you recommend these for me as I drive 90% on highway with frequent dipper almost 50% of the time, I read that these bulbs reduce life significantly if you use frequent dipper, is that true?

Using the bulbs in any way reduces life.On and off cycles also reduces life not just the use of upper dipper.

I have been using Philips Rally 100/90 for a year and no problems so far and I use the upper dipper frequently as well.No problems so far.

It really boils down to your preference.Philips Xtreme Vision is the latest one in the more power series and it took over from the Xtreme Power.

Your choice depends on preference really.I like Philips have been using them for ages.

That being said the NB's are pretty much the same too.If you have not tried Osram ever before why not try them.

Try to go for a reputed company like philips,bosch,hella or roots.For the relay you can go for the same companies, just stay away from PMP.

For bulbs, I have been using Philips rally for ages now.
Healight wiring kit contains everything, cermaic holder, relay. high-guage wire, fuses, connectors, plug, fire-resistant sleeve, etc. All you gotta buy is a pair of bulb and the kit [:)]
I was thinking the wiring harness kit contains only of the wires.[:)]
Getting a Wiring harness kit of Hella from ebay @900 INR.
Thanks for the info
