Thanks for the info.

Can you also suggest any timer relay for rear wiper so that it can come back to its position as in the front.

Most people will say drive lamps are just show offs. It helps a lot spotting potholes and better illumination in combination with headlight.

what is the wattage of your HID in the headlamp 35w or 55w?
also, is the VXI's foglamp as brittle as the ones on LXIs? I was thinking of putting LEDs in the foglamp.

I am running on 55W Phillips bulb, not HID. VXi comes with factory fitted Lumax fog lamps, and LXi does not. This one is cheap aftermarket foglamp.

Hello deville_56,

Is it possible to install this

100 Original Philips Extreme X Treme Vision CAR Headlight Bulbs Bulb H11 | eBay

in MGP's Fog assembly which is Lumax brand? Do it requires any extra MOD ?

like bulb cutting - relay etc.

Also Maruti's factory fitted fog comes 35 watt H8 bulb where those 55 watt H11 unit.

Can you comment ?

Below the picture of the Fog Unit where I intended to install..

H8 and H11 are interchangeable except some size difference in one of the notch, which most units can accommodate. Even the connectors are same. So there wont be much mod needed to swap them. Most people use 55W in place of 35w without any mods.

Lumax makes MGP foglamp.

Had a workshop visit after some time. Found a new workshop, very reasonable and good job.

Changed brake pads. 549 for a set. 600 INR labor for 4 brake overhaul. Silencer had holes, got weldedm charged 250 for that. There was a dead frog inside engine bay and blood all over there. Washed it at 400. Total bill some 1.6k.

Being Maruti, it should fit, but not 100% sure. Broke the gearknob and got Alto K-series one, so hope steering also fits

where did you find this fog lamps?
Got from Swaraj Motors Karamana. Original Lumax one for Alto was available at MGP. I think they got plastic benzels too.
