HID's 2010

Has anyone installed HIDs in a new 2010 Mazda 3 sport? If so did you do it yourself or did you have someone do it. The lights dont fit in properly, if you did then yourself can you tell me how to install them?
Thanks!!

Re: HID's 2010

hid is really easy to install. I just install mine on 2010 mz 3 sport yesterday. everything is plug in plug and most difficult part is figuring out where and how to mount ballasts and organizing all the wires.

Re: HID's 2010

Its the same for the sedan and hatchback. Use the guide I told you to use and I already said. You'll need H11 bulb size.

What he said. HID is one of the easiest mod you can do. If you can change a bulb on your car you can install HID.

Re: HID's 2010

If you have to ghetto rig a bulb into a socket, you have the wrong bulb. It should go in the socket and twist to lock it.

No ghetto rigging required.

You must have the wrong bulb. It should fit in without effort. http://www.mazda3forums.com/index.php?topic=172046.0
