    2012-2013 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    2013 Mazda 3 Skyactive Manual Transmission I've had an odd problem come up. The car just passed 50,000 miles. Recently, when I decelerate with the clutch engaged (engine braking), my headlights go through several cycles of becoming dimmer and brighter, before returning to normal. The...
  3. Dimmer map and dome light

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I don't know about others but I've always found my map lights and dome light in my 2014 Mazda 3 sport (hatch) way to bright. When I park in my driveway at night it's very dark as I live in the country and when you shut off the ignition the lights pop on and they're WAY to bright. I checked...

This would allow for brightness control capabilities, offer a factory look and functionality, require minimal wiring and would allow me to offer the kits in a variety of colors (red, white or blue)...
  6. Does anyone else feel like their stock HID's are dimmer than when they first got them

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I can't quantify this empirically in any way, but I feel like my stock HID's when I first got them were awesome- cutting through the darkness, even in lit city streets. I got my 3 after driving an ES350, and I noticed right away that the 3's headlights were noticeably brighter than the ES350's...
