  1. 55W XID kit requires 20amp Lo Beam fuses

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    My 2011 Mazda 3 GX with Halogen headlights has 15amp fuses for low beam. A 55W XID kit I bought requires 20 amp fuses. Does anyone know if you can safely just change to 20 amp fuses.
  2. HID 55w 5000k vs 6000k Color Appearance

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I was just wondering what color 5000K and 6000K bulbs on 55W would look like. 55W 5000K: Blue, Tint of Blue, White, Yellowish or Yellow? 55W 6000K: Blue, Tint of Blue, White, Yellowish or Yellow? Also, did you ever got flashed from oncoming cars after installing 55W?
  3. HID 55w vs 35w Resistors

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    2014 Mazda3 HB... I have 5000K 35w HIT bulb installed on my car, with resistor kit connected to each bulb to control the flickering issue. I am trying to upgrade them to 55w bulbs, 5000K, from the same same company, same product. I was wondering if I can still use the same resistors I used for...
  4. 8000k 55w HID Install, w/ Pics

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    One of the first things I wanted to do when I got my '14 Mazda 3 Sedan was swap out those dreadful OEM yellow headlights into something that stood out more on the road. I found a decently priced kit for H11's(NOT H11B) on HidKitXenonLights.com for ~$105 USD, without the canceller(unnecessary)...
  5. 35W or 55W 5k HID

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hello folks, I'm planning to get one of DDM HID kits but I'm not sure which voltage is right for my car. I have a 2011 M3 I-sport and it takes H11 bulbs for low beam. On the back of the bulbs, the voltage for the bulbs are listed 55W. So, does that mean that I have to go with a 55W HID or it...

  7. 35w vs 55w HIDs

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hello all! New to this forum and basically here for a question on behalf of a Christmas gift for the girlfriend's 2010 mazda 3. She is basically complaining that her stock halogens don't illuminate a high enough output for driving in poorly lit areas at night. I see many of you all have...
  8. HID 55w help.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi, I wasn't getting any responses in the "HID Thread" so I came here. Anybody know if I can run 4300k 55w hid headlights in my stock housing WITHOUT melting or frying anything? I need to know if I'll need relay harnesses. I'm thinking I should be fine without the harnesses as the stock bulbs...

  10. Difference between 55w HID kit and 35W HID kit

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    This week I installed a 35w 6000K HID kit in my 2009 mazda 3. At first I though it was plenty bright but I've realized things would probably look 100x with the 55w HIDs. My question is if I buy another kid that is 55w can I just replaced the ballasts that I currently have in my car and leave the...
  11. DDM 35w vs 55w

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I have pretty much decided on getting 55w 8000k DDM hids, probably the raptor kit(metal over plastic). I want my lights to be as legally blue as possible, so I'm getting 8000k's in hopes that the 55w will wash out some color. Also, with the higher kelvin temp, the light output would be slightly...

  13. Can't decide...35w or 55w HID's???

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Grrr.... I just can't decide if I should go with the 35w or 55w slim's from DDM tuning. I've decided on the 5000k in color. Will the 35w 5000k be a lot brighter than stock halogen's? Feedback would be great guys!! Thanks
