Post Genesis Sedan bulb sizes

Alright, I'd like to start a thread about the bulb sizes in the Genesis. Unfortunately Hyundai didn't think it may be useful for drivers to know what size bulbs they use so they haven't documented it anywhere.
Hopefully we can make this sticky-material so we can all be properly informed.
If you have questions about how to change bulbs, etc please do not post in this thread but start your own thread instead. I'd like to keep this clean with just bulb size info.

Here's what I have so far:

High beam halogen: H7
Low beam halogen (non-HID models): H11
Fog lights: H8
Front "parking" light (next to the high beam bulb): 168/194
Front blinkers: 2357. 1157 replacement bulbs will fit right in and work just as well.
Rear blinkers: PY21W/7507 (looks like an 1156 BUT IT IS NOT ONE!!!)
Back-up lights: 921
License plate: 2x 37mm festoon
Courtesy lights (under doors): 194/168
Trunk: 2x 31mm festoon (6418)
Glove box: 31mm festoon (6418)
Vanity mirror: 31mm festoon (6418)
Inside ceiling lights: appear to be custom lights, each with 1 high-power LED
Front footwell area: 194/168

Thanks Gimli & welcome to the site.

Looks like most of these bulbs are the same ones used in my BMW, which means that HID bright like & Invisilight bulbs already exist to replace the lame factory ones.

I will sticky this...

Also; if you would take the time to introduce yourself in the new member intro section.

One correction to add would be the low beam, non-HID bulb is a h11b.

The bulbs I speak of are bright white 6K HID looking, not actual Xenon HIDs. For actual HIDs, I recommend using leveling adjusters.

Has anybody pulled one out to verify that on a Genesis sedan? Got a link?

I'm asking because Sylvania, who say the low beams are H11b, also say that the fog lights are H11b although they are not, they are H8 (I've seen those myself). Sylvania doesn't carry an H8 bulb, which is why they recommend to use their H11b bulbs for fogs instead which is bad because the H11b bulb is 55W (compared to the stock 35W H8) and will cause both the wiring harness and the light housing to melt under the added heat.

Halo has an H8 bulb, Sparkplugs.com - Cross Reference Search Results, though they list H11 for low beam and fog lights as well.

They list D1S as the HID bulb.

Some differences from above, not sure if anyone can confirm these for us, Halo lists:
D2 (36mm wedge) for license plate
202 (1157) as the parking light
101 (194) for side marker
1156 for the rear blinker, and confirms the 1157 for the front blinker.

Here's a few links I found on H11b:

HIDs for the H11b's - Hyundai Forum: Hyundai Performance Forum
H11b crap don't buy that sht H11 work - ElantraXD.com

Sounds like its likely just a connector mod and not in the housing. Possibly just modding the plastic and not the connector electrodes. Moe with Halo confirmed for me that the mod is really that easy.
