Happened to visit MASS for just car wash for my Ciaz (i generally use to go there for car wash, Jugad) and then out of curiosity, i just went into the store room to check which manufaturers HID lights are used in the Baleno Alpha and Scross models.
I already knew that they use the Xenons headlamps as the stock input. but what amazed me is this.
ME: Hi, i am just curios to know that who is the manufacturer for the Lamps that were used in Baleno Alpha model. i know that these are Xenon ones which are used.
Store Manager: Sir, we actually go with what we have in our store manual and we go with the part numbers. i will just check workshop parts manual and will update you.
We opened the manual and got these in the manual.
For Baleno with no projectors. -- Notice part 5.12
For Baleno With projectors -- No Part for headlamps
Store Manager: Sir, we don't have any headlamp part for the ones with the projectors.
Me: In this case, what if one comes with the fused or any issue in the headlight.
Store manager: In this case what we do is we go with the full headlight assembly replaced in warranty.
I was literally shocked that if one's lamp in case gets fused, he'll have to get this assembly replaced? although they were from OSRAM, and that xenon can be replaced after market for near to 1000 Rs.
Store manager: Sir, we'll not give any claim under warranty if the headlamp in this case gets replaced aftermarket.
I am still confused....
