    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Hello everyone, i am a proud owner of a new Mazda 3 2019 Hatchback Soul red crystal! Unfortunately in my country we have only 1 trim and this is the base one. It does not have the signature headlights thus the Daytime running lights are Halogen while the Headlights are led. I really hate the...
  2. LED in halogen projector

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Has anyone put LED bulbs in their low beams? I know a few years ago this wasn’t even an option since LEDs don’t throw light very far. Just an idea I’m entertaining but want to know if anyone has experience with this, curious about cutoff and light output. If you put HIDs in your halogen...

  7. Replacing headlight with Halogen - must switch off DRL?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I am looking to replace my halogen yellow headlights in my 2018 Mazda 3 Touring Hatchback to cooler, blue lights. Because of so many differing opinions here about the efficacy of LED lights, I was thinking about replacing the halogen lights to 4300K halogens I found on CarID. I can't post...
  8. Halogen bulb upgrade and question about tail lights

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi. I am thinking of switching my bulbs on my '17 sport with something brighter and not as yellow. Silverstone Ultra is my top pick unless anyone vehemently urges me not to. Is there a tutorial out there on how to change it? From the manual it looks like I have to take off the wheel liner and go...
  9. My (14-16) Halogen headlamps are just sitting here.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So since they are technically spare since I got GT style eBay lights and retrofit those my halogens are just sitting here as I kept them as a backup for the past few months just in case. Now looking at them I kinda want to retrofit those and maybe add some LED accent or halos as they look pretty...

    Hello, I have a Mazda 3 iGT and am interested in swapping the stock halogen bulbs (both low beam and high beam) for a more pure white (4300K-6000K) halogen bulb. Can anyone recommend a reliable brand, where the bulbs do not burn out within the first year? Thanks!

  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...
  14. Best Halogen Bulbs (non HID conversion)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So I've seen in the 2011-2013 section a post on the best halogen bulbs for the Mazda 3 and the topic quickly turned to going HID conversion. I'm curious for the 2015 Mazda 3 with stock halogen projectors what you've found are the "best" bulbs without an HID conversion. I'd like something that...
  15. Pure White Halogen Bulbs?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Does anyone know if pure white halogen bulbs actually produce a white color when it's just used as a DRL? I'd like to disable the DRLs, but unfortunately the combo for the 2013 cx-5 of headlight on/off 5 times, hazard 5x and headlight 5x doesn't work in Canadian cars. I also didn't want to...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Hi i have the Mz3 with these healdlights, see below. I initially thought the high beam would act like the DRL when the car is in drive or neutral, but this was not the case. The local dealership was of no help, but in the car manual it says you can activate / or dis-activate it. Since mine...

  19. Are the Halogen DRL's the same as the High-Beams?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Are the Halogen DRL's (bulb #9005) the same bulbs that are used for the High-Beams? In the manual it shows the DRLs are # 9005 and the High-Beams as # 9005 so I assume the DRL's share the same bulb and the 65w bulb power is cut in half for the DRL. Is this correct?
