      I have been looking to upgrade the headlights on both my Tatas. I am NOT going higher than stock rating - just want better bulbs. Can someone tell me which one to buy - as in H1 H4 etc.?

      Actually, I did try the Night Breakers & Philips Night Vision on my Baleno. The Osrams were running in a friends car and I had bought the Philips. We swapped all three lamps one after the other and tested them. Though both the Osram and the Philips were better than the OE headlamps, they were not as good as the Philips 100/90s I had. If you drive at night a lot, I would recommend upgrading to 100/90s. I sold of the night vision to another friend and the car still runs on 100/90s.

      Infact, I am planning to get those huge Hella fogs for the Baleno & Swift.

      I am running Night breakers for about 6 months now. As Rahul said, they are only slightly better than the stock bulbs. I have them only because my car is still under warranty. Planning to sell these and get 100/90s in a couple of months.

      I have 90/100w philips in my car with the headlight re-wiring kit. Thought if switched to Nightbreakers 55/60w it would be better since load on the battery will be lesser

      Agree folks. But remember 100/90W bulbs are illegal. If you want to break the law then how about 35W only, i.e. HID. Go for the Bi-xenon variety.

      Not one person has answered my question - what are these H1 H4 H7 etc.? Are they different bulbs for different applications?

      Before you think what an ignorant fellow I am, remember I have replaced bulbs probably once on each vehicle.

      I think sgiik meant you can break the law even with 35watts hid.

      Hrag i think it has something to do with holder sizes.
