      Do you mean that particular bulb lasted 40k km ?

      Seems decent. Personally, I have not used a pair of bulbs for more than 20k km so no idea on the durability.

      You can check out amazon for Osram Night breaker laser. Good reviews.

      There are quite a few options for upgrading the headlights.

      For starters, you can also consider a 90/100w bulb setup with relay kit. Might cost you around 1.2k in total.
      This is much cheaper than the 1.8k+ stock wattage osrams and much more effective in terms of visibility.

      But that will lead to tempering with the wiring. I avoid tempering with wiring to the most extent.

      Currently I am at Ajmer. Reached yesterday evening. While roaming around the city yesterday, I parked my car in a parking space but another car while reversing hit my car. And a dent appeared below the fuel lid. Now at Sambalpur I have to get it fixed. Should I go for insurance claim or should I get it done from my own pocket I am confused.

      Have to drive my dented baby from Ajmer to Sambalpur

      Thanks

      I would seriously advise against this. While I was satisfied with bulbs' performance, I faced several issues. The install is not plug and play. A hole has to be drilled at the back of the headlight assembly to run the wire through. The amount of heat these bulbs generate melted the reflector coating. And the hole that was drilled let moisture in which used to fog the lights eventually caused the headlights to dull permanently (on the inside).

      Get quotations from HASS and decent FNG for complete damage repair. Also ask your insurance company to give a quotation for next renewal assuming you make a claim this year.
      If repair cost is substantially lower than the loss you incur in the next insurance premium renewal, then pay for the damage yourself.

      The bulb socket is the same. The signal is taken from stock plug and power is taken through relay. Relay kit comes with ceramic holder.
      I had the same notion of excessive heating until recently i saw a few cars using them without issues for quite some time. swift, verna, ecosport.
      Not sure what i am missing here ?
      Do you guys have projectors ?

      In any case, if budget can be extended, i would always recommend upgrading to a proper projector retrofit.

      Can't see the dent. Typically, if it is less than 5-8k expense, I'll get it done myself. More than that, will go for insurance.
