HID kit on a 2010 lease?

Is it easy to remove an HID kit if I install one on a lease? Will I get any penalties for having an HID kit installed on a leased vehicle? I'll be servicing my car at the same dealership I leased it...

It is a breeze to install and uninstall.

When you go in for service, the service shop has no idea (nor do they care) if the vehicle is leased or not.

Bottom line, install, enjoy and don't worry.

good point -- thanks! are the HIDs any easier to install in the 2010 compared to the 2004-2009?

Re: HID kit on a 2010 lease?

From what I remember about my 2007 mazda 3, yes. Changing a light bulb was a pain in the ass! Very cramped space, but in my 2010 speed 3 theres lots of room. I recently ordered a DDM kit and was scoping out the room to work with.. should be a breeze.

Fogs are a different story, I've never put HIDs in them but id imagine the easiest way would be to come through behind the wheel or removing the bumper. Good luck!

Re: HID kit on a 2010 lease?

The HID kits are really easy to install for the low-beams on the 2010. There is plenty of room to work around with and it is basically plug and play.

Depending on who you order from, you MAY need to reverse the polarity on one of the connections, but even that will take a minute to do.
