Different lights use different specification bulbs, All manufacturers use bulbs amongst these ones: H1, H3, H4, H7, H8, H11, 9004, 9005, 9006, 9007, D2S, D2R on all indian and imported cars.

Go in for Philips 130/100.... alternatively GE 140/100 or Hella 120/100 Super White's

IN addition to the relay, wires etc, get yourself a CERAMIC holder - will handle the heat without any worries... And dont worry about the dome - the Hyundai ones can take it without clouding etc. You can see the snaps in the Kerala Meet Thread.
