Hi cailaen best thing to do is do a search on this form putting in "interior lighting" for example, I know there was a lot of discussion on this subject few years back with regards to your gen 1 models and some with product links etc, also Google n eBay away look at reviews etc on the bulbs first but some times it's trial & error which I've found on getting some interior LEDs. Put in all variations of search suggestions, have a look on the Mazdarevolution forum (especially your gen 1 model posts) they are pimp mad over there and do some really great lighting mods. Have a look here I've found some coloured LEDs that may be compatable http://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/269-4-led-festoon-bulbs-30mm.html?bulb_search=car. Alexpress Asia's eBay is full of stuff again search with phrasing "Mazda 3 interior light" etc they to have dlr type lights that fit as strips to exterior bumper trim. NielP who is a member here bought & fitted these type of dlr's on his gen2 model and the look great. Hope this helps plus check out Horizonleds.co.uk I've just purchased some LED fog light replacements and they have transformed the look of the front end when they are on have look at my recent posts here.
