There isn't a specific one. Folks have installed ones from Amazon as well as bought directly from accessory stores.

On Amazon, just search for Shark Fin Antenna Hexa and there are many options.

Yes. That is understandable as these are not high quality. Also it is difficult to tell if it will work well or not. The sharkfin shape is also not conducive to reception.

same issue with my Nissan Terrano. Good low beam and bad high beam.
As our eyes focus on the bright spread near us, the distant vision is reduced. This is especially prominent on 4 lane roads with hedge in the median, where we we miss a animal or human waiting to cross.

Oh and for those of you thinking of upgrading to HID Kits, my advice would be, don't! It's not worth it. Firstly, lots of Police people stop you and try challaning you, despite the High End vehicles having Factory HID lights, apparently it's still illegal under the law.

I tried different LED combinations and found

In 4300k very good. Please avoid the colour changing filaments.
Secondly you have to try the different bulbs to finalize on what suits your reflector best. I initially tried the xhp50 bulbs which were spreading in my reflector, but are good on other cars.

Lost the battle of patience and booked the Hexa XT Tungsten Silver. The Love Story which started in 2003 continues with the 8th Tata Vehicle. The Hexa now replaces my Manza which bows out with an impressive 1.75 lakh kms on the odo. Hexa will be my primary family car for the long outstation drives and vacation trips. Office and local run gets served by the #FantasticoTiago

I enquired in October, they were giving insurance free. And looked ready to negotiate.

Congratulations, I also upgraded from Manza to Hexa and never had any regret. You will definitely enjoy the Hexa.
