I think we have got ourselves the "same but different" kind of things.
After doing some research on the internet, the "international" version of SX4 projector Headlight uses D2S HID Bulb for the low beam, with ballast attached to the bottom part of the headlight itself. On the other hand, the main beam uses halogen H11 bulb. It should be looking like this:
They show no difference on exterior. And that small thing attached to the cable on the bottom part is the HID ballast itself, supplying power to the low beam HID bulb. And the thing next to the low beam bulb is the self-levelling motor (I Guess, since it's normally where they put on my father's Toyota Vellfire).
On the other hand, what I've got myself is the Chinese-made projector headlight. it is made by Koito though, but still for LHD vehicle (Indonesian car is RHD, just as India). The key different though, both low-beam and high-beam bulb uses Halogen H7 bulbs. There is no attached ballast thingy there.
Show you in this picture:
The key difference of Chinese OEM
model compared to international ones are:[LIST][*]Dual H7 Halogen Bulb as standard, compared to HID D2S and halogen H11 on International Model[*]No attached ballast to the bottom part of the headlight. This depends on your conversion status. My car originally has a H4 Hi/Lo Beam, so converting to non-ballast attached headlight is more economical (attached ballasts made by Japan could cost up to US$250 per headlight)
All I need, is just a converter cable from H4 3-foot socket on the standard car wiring, into a double H7 bulb. Thing I've done in China is, buy myself an OEM
(They said its Suzuki original, not sure, but quality seems convincing) that converts the wiring from H4 socket into a square-shaped socket that the new headlight came with.
I also bought an LED H7 bulb, but a bit different with yours. It uses a fan instead of a "bionic-squid" looking heatsink. The seller said it actively cools the LED chip.
Here is the original picture after I installed myself. Notice that the fan is a little bit longer in the tail, but the seller happily give me a rubber which seals the headlight tightly (forget to take image).
All I need now is just waiting for my time to finish the study in China, and return to Indonesia this July end
will post the result after the installation. BTW
, here is my lovely companion for 8 years already. Not the best car in the world, but already taken me on so many journey and very reliable

I've got auto headlights function installed in my car which allows both the lights to be switched on when I put high beam. Stock wiring does not allow for both low and high beam to be switched on simultaneously. However when you do use only high beam it does light up the road pretty well. So only the high beam should suffice. You can modify the wiring to have both of them on.
