    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, This is going to be some sort of rant and also my experience with this company. I bought my brand new 2015 Mazda 3 about a year ago, 2 months after owning it, I bought from TRS my HID kit (Morrimoto 50W XB55 6500k bulbs) for about $160.00. After about 3-4 months one...

  5. TRS or DDM HID and canbus

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey everyone, Not here to start a war over which is better. My thread is to gain some clarification on HID kits and if we have to have canbus/error correctors installed on our cars because I am looking to invest in a HID kit for my 2016 iTouring hatchback. Currently I have disabled the DRL...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hello Guys, So i recently bought a 2015 Mazda 3, and my first "mod" was an HID Kit from TRS, it's the Morimot 55w Kit, with relay. So i followed the instructions, i connected the relay to a "ground" and the positive side to the battery ( i put it on top of the other cables on the positive) then...
  8. TRS XB LEDs for Turn Signals - Hyperflashing

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys, so today I tried to install the TRS XB LED bulbs on my 2015 Mazda 3 and can't seem to get rid of the hyperflashing. I already have a different set of LED bulbs in the rear with load resistors and it works fine but I can't seem to get the front to not hyperflash. I'm not using the TRS...
  9. Morimoto LED fog light housings for Mazda from TRS

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    As many know, the OEM fog lights are kinda weak and useless. TRS has some LED fog light housings for Toyota and some other makes, which replaces the OEM fog light housing and has a built in LED bulb. From reviews and pix I've seen, they have pretty good spread and are much more useful than the...
  10. TRS LED fog light bulbs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I recently installed the Spyder fog light kit onto my 2014 Mz3 iGT. That kit has been discussed thoroughly here and I feel for the price compared to OEM it's a good deal. If you follow the tips regarding it listed in various threads on this site you will not be able to distinguish it from the...

  12. Review and How-To Install HID Lights from TRS

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    It took me roughly 5-6 hours to install these lights, mostly because I’ve learned that I am not handy at all and the instructions weren’t at all clear-cut enough more or less any instructions for a DIY noob + I didn’t understand the diagram at first glimpse and was just like “I’ll figure this...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Morimoto 3Five and 5five "SS" Ballasts - TRS Acknowledges Problems in Cold weather I just figured I would post this here in case any of you have the Morimoto 3Five ballast from TRS, about two weeks ago "TRS Matt" (who I believe is the owner of TRS) posted about how the ballasts apparently have...
  14. TRS Morimoto Flickering on startup

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hiya, I finally installed the H11 ELITE MORIMOTO HID today with a help of a friend on my 2012 Skyactive, unfortunately the HID's are flickering for about 1-2 secs on startup. Once it's on and after 1-2 seconds then it's solid and doesn't flicker at all. I got the 35W with heavy duty relay...
  15. TRS Retrofit Install

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Appearance & Interior
    I just got a new TRS Morimoto HID retrofit for my 2012 Mazdaspeed 3. I'm still a novice on DIY projects, but I figured out how to remove the front bumper and put it back on, not difficult at all. I get stumped because the retrofit did not come with an install guide and with electrical, I get...

  17. seal on retro-quik system from TRS

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I'm installing the bi-xenon projectors from the retro-quik kit from TRS and I can't figure out how to seal the back of the headlights with the bulb, the new projects is so in-set from where the halogen was from the back that the old grommet won't make a seal to prevent water from getting in. any...

  19. TRS Morimoto Retro-Quik System

    Group Buys
    Group Buy ends 12/22/2011 This kit is a bolt on kit. I would think the hardest part would be taking the headlight apart to bolt the new projectors in. This kit will give you the bi-xenon set up so you can have both hi and low beams as hid. Dunston and EuRomer can tell you how much better this...
