      Question

      If I were to buy this will I able to upgrade the bulbs to led later on or I will have to stick with halogen only ? Also what I can expect the installation charges. There needs to be some cutting I think. I can have the switch I want, right ?

      Never seen Hi & Lo beam on fogs. Also, adjustments. I am not sure what they are selling. Fogs by nature have diffuse lighting and not focussed. So I will be highly suspicious.

      This is the only option for me I guess. I think one dealer can arrange fog lights for me but even if he does I think the cost is 12K which I am not sure is worth it. Other aftermarket I think will fit Tiago, Swift lights which will need some awkward change to front bumper. I like the LED bars that some cars have so may be that is the other option.

      Hi Guys,

      I have a Ford Fiesta classic in which I have aftermarket custom dual projector headlights installed from MXS motorsports. Lately I have not been satisfied with the light output as it's been 3+ years. One of the bulbs gave me trouble too since it sometimes don't turn on at once, but works if turned headlights on/off few times. I am not an expert on car lighting & retrofitting, hence didn't even know which lights to replace the HID bulb with, & also suspected the ballast to have gone bad. I sourced a pair of Osram H4 HID kit from a friend who bought it but didn't use it. That's when I discovered that aftermarket light has P8 bulbs installed in it, and the Osram bulbs were not fitting in shroud. The local retrofitting guy hooked them up in headlight and supported the bulbs with rubber lid to keep them in place. I was under an impression that light output will get much better but am disappointed since I can not feel any difference. The light output is mediocre, less than average.

      I still have stock headlights and considering going for retrofitting in stock headlights. I have few queries:

      1. Can Morimoto D2S 4.0 be fitted in the stock headlight after the required cutting & adjustment? I care about the end result to be perfect which any experienced retrofitting guy will be able to achieve. I am planning to source from US as someone is coming over around Christmas.

      2. I had dual projector setup till now. But if I were to go for custom setup with best results as requirement, then shall I go for single pair projector setup, instead of quad projector setup, which may not be possible due to size, etc. (I may be wrong too)

      3. What other things will be needed, which I may order alongwith projectors, like Morimoto D2S bulb 5500K, Morimoto 55 watts Ballast, Etc.

      4. Will Morimoto D2S 4.0 be the right choice for Fiesta Classic 1.4 TDCI headlights? Will one single light work for both low & high beam, if I install a splitter along.

      5. How much will be the price variation, in Indian price & US price? Will it be worth it to bring it in from US?

      6. Will Osram ballasts work fine with D2S bulbs? If yes then maybe I can use those, since they are new.

      Please respond sooner than later since I gotta make a decision & place an order within 24-48 hours.

      Thanks in advance

      I don't think you can use the US lamps. They drive on the right side of the road. Fitting them to your car in India will blind other drivers.

      I have done some research & American sellers do have both LHD & RHD options. There shouldn't be any such variation since distributor in India is also selling the import product with duties & profit margins in place.
      Indians adapt to harsh blinding lights coming from Chinese installations, etc. The legit one sells for a higher price due to better quality & regulated output, IMO.

      Yes the option to select LHD & RHD is there. In fact I am getting the Morimoto D2S 5.0 for $165, will also be getting Morimoto D2S XB35 5500k bulbs and hook it with my 35 watts Osram ballasts.
