Has anyone else found the lights a little inadequate?

What have you done about it?

Is there any adjustments that can be done on the Swift?

The headlight shines abit short of the distance that I'd like to see.
Havent adjusted it so far. The fog lamp is totally useless, more for show
though.

Ya, i also feel the beams are not aiming far enough. There shd b some
screws to adjust the height of the beams. But i haven't tried out yet.

Nazirm, i think the fog lamp is not for show only, but it's really helping
me, especially when i use high beam.

well, try driving down a dark road and switch off ur main headlamp. Leave
the foglight on and you'll see what I mean.

pls understand what foglight means then we can understand better the
foglight purpose and function on a car.
as what i understand this light is to be use during foggy condition or
weather not to replace main headlamp function and to be use when driving
dark road.
each light on a car have their own funtion so we as the driver use it
wisely and don`t use foglight when driving dark road la... since you know
very well it`s not bright enough and pointing at a very short distance
only.
my 2cents opinion saja....

foglamp have a higher intensity than headlamp but they're angled to shine
much nearer than headlamp. The foglight beam spread angle also is much
greater than the main headlamp. What I failed to understand here is that
how come swift foglamp doesn't work as well as other car. Is it just an
angle adjustment or the feflector design? Because even kenari's foglamp
works better.

My friend with a Swift just changed to the projector type lamps. Very
canggih. It has 3 LEDs small lamps, projectors and reflective lamps, 2
angel eyes, black background. About Rm1k. When the Parking light is
turned on, the 2 Angel eyes and the 3 Led lights turn on. Your Swift won't
look the same anymore.

Also have Rear lamps, crystal type with LEDs, but my friend prefers to keep
the stock one.

Bro RM1ONE, is the Projector brighter than the stock headlights? Is the
angel eyes white or yellow in color?

Sorry blue, am not sure but I think the answer is no difference since my
friend uses back the same H4 bulb. For brighter light, u need to upgrade
to Osram Silverstar or Philips Vision Plus.

The LED lamps and Angel lights are white. So, to match these white, it is
best to have a more whitish/yellow H4 bulbs.

If u do go for these lamps, the rims also must match it. Black base rims
should match the black background of the lamps.
