  1. 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...

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    Hello, I've sold my '16 GT sedan, so looking to sell my Morimoto LED fogs. No issues. Worked great. These were used for about 1.5 years...so they have a little wear on the lenses from highway miles. Asking $90. Private Message if interested. Tks,
  3. Morimoto XB LED Fogs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Another case of a product being the best of its kind, yet falling short in key areas. Morimoto is a well known name in the HID retrofitting industry and their projectors are generally really nice units. Having read the glowing reviews of this particular fog light retrofit for our cars, I was...

  6. Morimoto LED Fogs Installed! Daaayum...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Wow. That's all I gotta say... I bought these things on a whim because I know they're a rare part -- bought them back in March I think it was knowing they were going into pre-order for a manufacturing run. Well they finally came yesterday. Installed them inside of 10 minutes and turned them on...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Anyone have pics with these in yellow? Functionality wise yellow is supposedly better but I'm curious how they look. Preferably on a blue reflex but ill take any color for reference. Thanks in advance.

    Hi folks, the other day in the highway i hit a wood stick that was laying on the ground. i tried to avoid it but was nearly impossible because of traffic. Good news is that nothing happened to the car except that i made a small scratch in the bumper and also the silver piece next to the fogs...
  9. Swap fogs for driving lights

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    As the fog lights are basically useless, I was wondering if there was a set up that would use them for longer distance /higher speed night driving. Would this be effective as they are much closer to the ground? Is it a simple bulb replacement? What needs to be done wiring wise to have them...

    I'm trying to make sense of the wiring but are their any guides to be found? Checked this forum but found nothing. I take it all I really need to do is make an extra connection to the battery?
  12. Adding OEM Style Fogs from ebay

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Wife has a '12 GS-Sky that does not have fog lights from factory. Looks like the OEM Fogs kits are ~$250 + another ~$75 for the stalk with the added switch. Came across the below on ebay for ~$100, and am curious if anyone has experience with them? 2012 2013 Mazda 3 Mazda3 Bumper Driving Fog...
  13. Installed PIAA Bulbs in Fogs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    No pics yet, but this is a huge upgrade over the stock bulbs. Really adds a nice, professional touch to the lighting. I was prepared to remove and modify the housings in order to adjust the height of the beams, but it wasn't necessary. The channel the 10mm adjustment bolt sits in is already...
  14. With Fogs vs. Without Fogs Grille

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    My front grille (and absorber) were recently damaged and I'm looking to replace them. When I was looking on ebay, I noticed the w/ fogs models are painted and the w/o fogs ones are not painted. I was thinking the painted ones look a little nicer and if I'm replacing it anyways, I might as well...

    2004-2009 Mazda3Appearance & Interior
    Bought replacement fog lights from CARiD - tried through the wheel well, but found that dropping the bumper was WAY too easy. Both sides out and back in within an hour. Sure looks better without the broken lenses. Next...

  18. Fog light off w/ turn signal on feat. Morimoto fogs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Just received my XB fogs from TRS today. Their build quality is amazing and the light output is WIDE and AWESOME. If I leave them on factory position it will blind pedestrians a bit so I had to cut the tabs on the adjustment bolt and tilt them down a little (2/3 of the way down). Now they are...

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    Comes with harnesses, relays, and a switch but it didn't come with an install manual. I'm clueless here. Would anyone care to fill out my diagram below with some simple instructions?
  20. Will '05 lower grille and fogs fit '08?

    2004-2009 Mazda3Appearance & Interior
    The black plastic solid band at the top of the egg-crate part of the lower grill is cracked on my '08 HB (see photo) - can I replace the whole lower grille with the full egg-crate style grille of an '05 with no mods? And do the round style fogs of an '05 HB fit my '08, again with no mods? My...
