mazda 3 sport led lights
« on: August 09, 2014, 11:19:46 PM »
So I once saw led lights on the front of a upgraded 2012 mazda 3 venture. They weren't in the headlights they were sort of in the grille around the number plate. I know they are an accessory but I can't seem to find them anywhere.  Help!

Definitely an owner fitted aftermarket fitment. Mazda have never done such an arrangement. You can buy such items in Halfords, if that's any help.

They were definitely dealer fit as I worked for the dealer at that time.  I used to work for Mazda but don't anymore, so not really up to date with all these things.  Here is a pic of the car.

Hi Torred1771
Read this post and I did have something similar saved in my favs but I no longer do but will have a look on web again, but in meantime have a look on Aliexpress.com it's equivalent to ebay but in Asia and it's pretty good just search as you would ebay. I have bought from it before bike parts etc has a good broad base of items.

I sure will  ;)

Yes the install was fine, just make sure you have some foam backed double sided trim tape which you need to cut and put on the top and bottom of each lamp to secure it in place.  The wiring was a doddle too and I have connected mine into the sidelight circuit using Scotch Lock connectors and then sealing them with tape.

Hi Mogly I'm fine thanks how's you?
