      DIY Hyundai Creta HID Install | DHB3 Osram HID Kit

      Hello everyone,
      Being my first DIY as well as first post on this forum forgive me for some mistakes I might have made while writing this review.

      So lets start...
      As you might be knowing CRETA has really pathetic headlight projectors with halogen bulb in it and to be very honest halogen wasn't doing any justice to it. So after searching a bit in the market as well as online. I had two options to upgrade

      1.HID FROM OSRAM OR PHILLIPS
      2. CHINESE MAKE GOOD HID
      3 LED LIGHTS

      Let's first start with point 2. Chinese make I really don't trust because when they will go kaput you will have no idea. As my father drives creta he never wanted me to mess with the wirings or design of creta so my option for Chinese make dint go well.
      Coming to led part I have read many reviews online of led lights inside a halogen projector won't give you a good output infact it will create issues for oncoming traffic even in low beam due to irregular beam pattern.

      So finally my search narrowed down to HID WITH TEMP 4200K. As they are best suitable for every condition. On searching online I found DHB3 OSRAM HID CONVERSION KIT which was plug and play for creta projectors and it also had canbus adaptor with it which would prevent any error in the SYSTEM. Finally I ordered it on Amazon and also got it in lighting deal at a price of Rs 6590. As on the box the mrp mentioned was Rs8700 so that means I bought them for a good deal 😉.
      I have attached pictures of the box as well.

      Coming to the install part.
      Being a mechanical engineer I always have eager to install things myself rather than getting it installed somewhere else. so I decide to do DIY INSTALL.

      Below is the process for installing be carefully with hid bulb do jo touch it with your bare hands as it might damage the bulb.

      Step 1. Open the bonnet of your car. After that look for dust cap behind headlight assembly twist it anticlockwise and the Dust cap will come out.

      Step 2. Disconnect oem socket from bulb slowly.

      Step 3. Twist bulb anticlockwise and the bulb gets unlocked. Carefully detach bulb and keep it aside carefully.

      Step 4. Now put osram hid bulb carefully inside the assembly and twist it clockwise carefully once it gets locked check if the bulb is intact or not.

      Step 5. You need to make hole in the dust cover to take wire out from the assembly and seal it with rubber seal provided in osram kit.

      Step 6. Now connect the oem socket with the hid socket and close the dust cap.

      Step 7. Now connect the wires to the ballast looking at positive and negative poles.

      Step 8. Secure the ballast and canbus adaptor where they are away from water.

      Step 9. Close the bonnet and you ready to hit the roads. And you will see the difference.
      I have also made video of the whole process covering somepart of it. Forgive me my low voice as am very much new to all this. I have attached link also do watch the video. For any queries feel free to ask or guide me.

      Thanks for this thread. I was also looking for HID conversion too in my Creta and this will help a lot.
      Can you please tell about the performance in rain/fog? Are HIDs unusable in rain or fog?

      Hi Rey,
      Performance wise they are really worth giving a try. The output is just amazing . Also i have selected 4300k temp color which is good during rain or fog.

      Thanks, I will go with 4200K too. I saw the link to the product you have posted in your YT video.
      There is another 4200K one kit, which is slightly higher in price, and says Generation 2: Osram DHB3 4200K HID Conversation Kit Generation 2 Headlight Bulb (12V, 35W): Amazon.in: Car Motorbike - Is it the new model?
      Which one to go for since both are 4200K?

      Thanks.
      One more question: Do you, by any chance, have any pics of where you have put your Ballast, Canbus adaptor and Igniter?
      I am having a hard time to figure out the place to put them. :|

      Hi rey,

      I have secured ballast under the wiper water bottle on the driver side using 3M tape and tied wires using zip ties, in passenger side i have secured them under battery box.
      So in both ways water wont be problem for them.
