    Hey Guys, So I was checking on headlight upgrades for the Bi Xenon projector housing. I was wondering if anyone upgraded their ballast from 35w to 55w and if so what product was purchased. Any recommendations for Headlights are welcomed as well.

    I have a Mazda 3 GT MT and the headlamps are super weak at night. Even with the highbeams they are incredibly weak and i sometimes have trouble seeing further distances at night. Also the left beam seems to be lower than the right? Anybody else experiencing this?

    Hi Guys, I got a bit prepared to change the stock Bi-Xenon bulbs in my car for the OSRAM XENARC COOL BLUE INTENSE D4S HID, 66440CBI-HCB. Mostly the videos I watched were for Mazda's 3 with Halogen Bulbs so I thought it would be a similar process. But, what i thought would be a breeze got so...

    So I need to find out where I can find a replacement for my BiXenon HID lights. I got the 2015 Mazda 3 sGT, and I got into an accident. The headlight shattered and I got a replacement on eBay that was used. The issue? The ballast and bulb were MIA unfortunately. Searched eBay and online, the...

    I have a 2016 S Touring model with halogen lights. I'd like to install the oem lights that come on the S grand touring. I've read that getting them from the dealership would be too expensive and will not be plug and play. I ran into this eBay listing that claims to be plug and play with the...

    I have a 2012 s gt with the tech package so i have the swivel headlights. Does anyone know where i can buy some RBG Angle eyes for the my headlights? Or can i just use any angle eyes fit? I guess my question is do i need special fitted ones since i have the bi-xenon headlights?

    Hi everyone. So I recently had a minor accident with my beloved 2014 Mazda 3 and had to replace the passenger's side HID headlamp. I'm having a slightly hard time trying to adjust to the right height since then passenger's sides are a tad bit higher. Does anyone have a picture of the light beams...

    I recently installed the V3 Triton 5000k amber/white switchbacks and my OEM Bi-Xenon bulbs are around 4200-4300k. I'd like to match them with the switchbacks (if possible). I'm really dumb with lights/electrical and don't have a great understanding of most of it. First, is it possible to swap...

    Hi. I am about to buy a Mazda 3 and wonder about the quality/usability of the xenon/led package. I haven't been able to find any comparison/experience regarding the xenons, so if any of you got a Mazda 3 (or 6 for that matter) with xenons I would be very happy to hear what you think about these...

    So heres the story, my friend recently purchased a 2010 Mazda3 2.5 GT with tech package, but for some reason there were no HIDs on the car and the highbeams wouldnt work. So i helped him purchase and install a cheap HID kit from ddm so he could have a bit more light. I also replaced both the...

    I've got a 2012 i-touring model and I want the OEM xenon lights, but without the leather/nav/bose/$4k+ higher price that the grand touring model comes with. Has anyone swapped their halogen headlight assemblies for the factory HID/adaptive units? If so, was it plug and play or was anything...

    I finally got around to installing my new bi-xenon projectors from The Retrofit Source. I first had 5000k bulbs and did not like the color output and got 4300k bulbs and am VERY happy with them! The light output is clear and has a razor sharp cut off line. You will notice a difference and...
