    Hi, Sorry if this has been posted already. I have a 2015 Mazda3 Sport NAV and was wondering how the DRLs are meant to look, looking at some pictures online & even the light unit itself it looks as though the ring around the headlight in meant to light up and act as a DRL, however looking at...

    Whats the best way to get yellow/amber drls. Can I just change my HB bulb? I don't care about the brightness on the HB as I will have HIDs soon. Thanks in advance!

    Hey everyone, installed some of the aftermarket LED DRLs that go around the fog lights the other week. Made a video of the install. Hopefully if you are interested in the lights this might give you an idea of how hard the install is and help you make up your mind.

    I've seen these on eBay and they looks very nice especially since the turn signals are now LED. I'm reluctant to get these because I've seen zero install videos or guides, and was wondering if someone here has them and has installed them successfully. If so could you guys comment on how reliable...

    Hi, My Mazda 3 is a 2015 SE-L with Xenon headlamps and I've got in to the habit of popping the car into neutral when I come to a stop. I've noticed that if I need to apply the handbrake the daytime running lights switch off, is this normal? They come back on when I release the handbrake and go...

    Hey, I just replaced my factory halogen drl/highbeam bulbs (HB3 9005) with LED bulbs. They don't turn on as drls but do actually turn on when the highbeam function is on. What do i need to do to get them to function as drls during the day? My car: 2016 Mazda3 s-touring (w/ Halogen bulb...

    Hello guys, when you switch to parking lights, you get the lights glowing like on the attached picture (but the intensity is lower than daytime running lights). Anyone knows, if its possible to have DRLs glowing the same as parking lights (but with more intensity). I mean if its possible somhow...

    Is it possible to replace the DRLs with a bluer looking bulb like with this? Robot Check All you have to do is replace the bulb and install the ballast right?

    Hey everyone. I got my '12 ms3 with tech package about 4 months ago. I was taking a closer look at my headlights and noticed the previous owner installed the corksport led drls in it, but clearly they don't work. The US spec ms3 has the housing for drls but they don't work. Any idea on how t get...

    Hey everyone. I got my '12 ms3 with tech package about 4 months ago. I was taking a closer look at my headlights and noticed the previous owner installed the corksport led drls in it, but clearly they don't work on US speconomy models. Apparently the Canadian spec has it, however. US spec ms3...

    Any way to take the 9005 bulb and still get the DRL function to work with LEDs or HIDs? I would much rather prefer a white look over yellow driving during the day.
  15. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I've done some looking, but only seem to be able to find a how-to for the 2014s. Does anyone know how to disable the DRLs on the 2012 (Canadian model)? I have just put angel eyes and LED rope in the fronts, and want only them showing. They're tied into the parking lights. Only ways I know of...

    One of my biggest pet peeves has been the deception with advertisement of fully lit LED HALOS. I was told to see this video today of changes to the 2015 Headlights. I am also certain this is comming and if so, I will gripe and B-itch to the end to ger my lights replaces. Fully lit Halos, not...

    So I don't post as much as I would like to, but frequent this forum for AMAZING ideas. I don't have a build thread, seeing how I'm trying to mod on a poor man's budget. (I'm slowly getting there!) I have been searching everywhere to see if anyone has done something like this, and haven't had...

    I personally hate the way the DRLs look, because i feel it's a complete waste to have lights ON during the day. I laugh at idiots on the road that purposely turn ON their HIDs during the day, to show off. :thumbdown 1: It's a complete waste of energy and bulb life, esp if the HIDs are ON. I...

    I have the stock HID auto focusing headlights and hate that the DRLs came so yellow. I replaced them right away with some bright 6k LEDs, but was wondering if anyone has ever put in an HID kit for these??? I've seen a few of them on ebay: Universal 15W "Brightest" HID Reverse Kit White 6000K...

    Ok here is the set up I am currently running... I rewired the fogs so that the positive for them is connected to the positive of the parking lights and they turn on when I turn on the parking lights. I completely bypassed the fog light relay. If you were to look at it, you could not even tell...
