What HID kit should I buy and from where?
« on: October 20, 2009, 01:19:17 PM »
Hi guys,

I tried looking this up but couldn't find much. Perhaps i'm just a bit thick.
Where can i get a good HID kit for a good price that will fit a 55 Reg Mazda 3 1.6 TS2?

I looked on eBay but I'm not too sure.
Also do Mazda 3's have bulb warning if a bulb blows? :-\

Thanks

Get the 5000K version in H7 and 35w.. they'd be ideal for the 3.. :)

Thanks I'll look into it. Anyone else any suggestions?

Also I see in your signature you have a 2008 1.6 stock "but not for long". What are you planning on doing to it? I would like some ideas.

Thanks

Colacao was last active on the forum in 2010 so I'm afraid it is unlikely that you will get an answer from him. I'm sure you have looked around the forum,  but there are other more up to date threads that might help you.

To be honest, I should probably stick with my original decision (the legal one) of not getting a conversion kit...

I'll have to wait a year or two and get a newer Mazda :P
