Default Stock bulb types of indian cars.

I was going through the forum and saw that there is no ready reference for what bulb type fits which car, especially the fogs.
Mods please rename the thread title and description for clarity if required
The main tends to be H4 or an H1/H7 combo

so here is my contribution.

Please do mention what type of bulb is used for Hi, Lo and Fog

Indica

Hi/Lo :H4

Fogs H3 ( 2004-06 triangular) and H11(2007-Current round shape)

Basically all cars (or mostly) which a single reflector for hi and low beams are H4. Eg. Baleno, Sx4, Octy, Scorpio etc.
Cars with different reflectors for hi and low beams are H1 and H7. Again in mostly if not all cases. Eg. Fiesta, Civic, cant think of any others right now.

Sx4 - H7/H8
Swift - H7/H8/H11 is I remember correctly. Maybe not H8. Never really figured out for both.
But usually most after market fog lights are H3. Meant to be more powerful.
