  1. 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...
  2. 2018 LED DRL - Turn off Projector?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys, I got a 2018 GT with the LED headlights a few weeks ago. Love it but I noticed that 3s with LED or HID prior to 2018 used the ring around the projector and/or the eyebrow as a DRL rather than turning on the projector itself. The 2018 turns on both, so from the front it looks the same...

  5. HID Projector Fog Lights

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I am a lighting enthusiast and I love HID's and LED's But for now, LED's can't touch HID's when it comes to road visibility/output as well as price... On most car forums I've seen people retrofit HID projectors to fog lights Surprisingly, I haven't seen anyone on this forum do this.. Most...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I don't know if any one had an experience with taking the projector lamp apart, but I was just wondering what those projectors cutoff shields are made out of. Are they made out of metal plates?

  9. [REQUEST] Guide to Projector Retro-fit

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey, Is there some type of guide to replacing the projector in the non-HID mazda 3's? I have the iTouring 2014 sedan and I want to upgrade to something with better visiblity/color/cutoff. Would these work? Whats the difference between H11 HID bulbs and D2S bulbs? Do they require different...
  10. Projector fog light retrofit

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Appearance & Interior
    I like to thank @steelrain for helping me with this project. Well this was a fun project lol. Not hard to do. 1 bracket for each fog had to be made, buy longer screws and had to find a h11 wire harness. The fogs I bought takes 9006 unfortunately. Luckily tho DDM is in my city so I could work...

  12. My First Mazda!! - HID projector question for 2014 model

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hi All, I traded in my 2005 MB CLK500 for 2014 Mazda3 GX Sports w/ tech package. Since I will be a first time daddy in couple months, the trade in was tough but absolutely necessary. So far, I am completely happy with my Mazda3 right now; even though I am a big guy (6'7") I have no problem...
  13. Considering Upgrading my stock fog lights to HIDs with projector. Looking for advice.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So I got my Mazda 3 s Touring a couple weeks ago and I want to upgrade my fog lights for both looks and performance at night. The s Touring come standard with HID headlights and halogen fog lights, and to be honest I can't tell any difference at all when the fogs are on, not to mention the...
  14. Projector shroud and high beam diameter

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So I've done some googling and searching on here and have come up with nothing. I'm thinking about getting the TRS LED Halos, and i dont know what diameters to get. I'd like to get a ring around the projector lens in the "pocket" of the shroud, and around the outside of the high beam reflector...

  16. HID projector retrofit

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Has anyone done a HID projector retrofit on their 2010+? I was thinking about it but don't know if it is worth the hassle of opening up the headlights. Would a Morimoto Mini H1 fit in the stock location with minimal modification? My big concern is opening the headlights and screwing something...
  17. How to change the projector bulb?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    So I just bought a whole new HID kit for my fogs and headlights to be brighter and match each other, my question is about the 2012 mazda 3 GTS... It's got the single projector headlight that's both high and low beam in one bulb, it's a D2S bulb type I believe. Does anyone know how the hell to...
  18. Stock halogen projector modding

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Picked up a spare headlight and I'm playing with a stock halogen projector and HID. Factory projector leaves much to be desired. Stock lens is about 24mm thick, so I ordered a pair of FXR clearlenses to experiment with. The clearlens has a slightly smaller lip and is a few mm smaller in...
  19. Anyone that has the stock halogen projector lens! I need a favor!

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Does anyone happen to have the stock halogen projector lens from the 2010+ Mazda on hand? I need the diameter of the lens in inches (most likely 2.5"), and the height (overall thickness) of the stock glass lens by itself in millimeters. For example, the first gen Mazda's were a 3" lens and 30mm...
  20. Projector Clear Lens upgrade?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I was browsing through the Fit forum helping a friend regarding HIDs and found this on one of the sites a guy mentioned. It is a clear lens that has a sharper cut-off and apparently distributes light better? I e-mailed them asking if it would fit a 2010-2011 Mazda3 and am waiting for a reply. I...
