  1. LED Headlights - Long Throw, Low Beam

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey all! I recently had one of my low beam headlights go out, and usually when something goes out or wears down on this car, I always try to upgrade it with something better. I have a 2013 3 with regular halogen bulbs. I’m happy with the color, brightness, throw distance, etc... but would like...

  3. DRL setup hard on high beam bulbs; reroute to fogs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    The stock setup of the high beams running at half voltage as the DRLs is bad for the filament of halogen bulbs. Halogens need to run at (near or over) full voltage for the actual halogen cycle to work. Lifespan and luminosity are both negatively affected with the stock setup. Inspection of...

  5. Disabled DRL while keeping high beam?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I ordered a front turn signal that acts as a DRL white, then switches amber for turn signal. I always disliked the orignal yellow-ish DRL, can i disabled it, but do want to keep high beam for safety on the streets. You guys probably already know, DRL and high beam uses the same bulb. Thanks

    2016 3 i Sport, halogen projectors I had a bunch of repairs on my 3 from a recent accident, including replacing the headlights. The shop used OEM replacements. I was checking the aim last night and noticed the beam cutoff color is different on the left and right. On the right it's that nice...

    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.

    I have not tried this feature but supposedly it switches between high and low beam automatically? Anyone here have feedback on how well this actually works in the real world?
  11. LED for DRL/High Beam

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi, I think this question has been asked a lot of times on this forum but most of the time the conversation stops abruptly. So I thought maybe we can have all the answers in one place. I want to change my yellow halogen bulbs on DRL/High Beam to white (6000K) LED. On reading up some of the...

  13. Halogen drl/high beam swap

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Are there any bulbs/ setups that have a safe drl (non blinding ) in white that can also function as a high beam light in the reflector housing? I'm planning to switch the stock halogen in the projector bulb to HID which will probably down out the stock highs so naturally I would still want them...

  15. Just changed H11 low beam bulbs for H9 bulbs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I'll let you guys know how they do. All I can say right now (in full sunlight) is that they turn on and don't blow any fuses. Well, and they hurt to look directly in them. :smile2: All "H" series bulbs have the filament in exactly the same location, so the pattern should be identical, except...
  16. Main Beam Permanently On

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have a 2014 Mazda3 SportNav and when I turn on ignition the main beam headlights come on despite the selector being in the off position. The tail lights also come on. No matter what position I place the selector switch in, the main beam stays on even though the instrument panel does not show...
  17. Foglight beam pattern....

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys and gals. I was wondering what the typical beam pattern for fog lights usually are. I was tinkering with the idea for installing Morimoto X.pods rather than pick up the OEM ones. Since I don't have fogs, I would cut out the shape onto the existing plastic housing and fabricate a custom...
  18. strange high beam pattern

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Just wondering if anyone else's high beams look like this or if something is wrong here. It can be very distracting as it lights up things you are passing under.

    Hello everyone, I have a 2014 Mazda 3 Sport. I recently purchased the iJDMTOY Super Bright 9005 LED Daytime Running Light Kit to replace my yellow bulbs. I really like the color of the LED, its a white color with a blue tint (I think it's 6000k). 2014 and up Mazda3 Mazda6 9005 LED Daytime...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    I installed HID kit with Can-bus Ballast ( 6000K ) It was very simple to install but not easy because small space to work. I am very satisfied from result. I really recommend can-bus one ( simple and no long wire ) I try to post picture next time. Also I installed LED bulb for inside light. So...
