Swapping to LED tails (different voltages?)

I want to replace my '10 MS3 tails with LED tails (these: http://www.corksport.com/mazda-oem-j...il-lights.html)

However, I heard that the LED tails use different voltages than from the standard non-LED tails and will void warranty. Can anyone confirm? Worse comes to worst would you just blow a fuse?

They cant void the warranty....They can only void a claim. They can only say we will not honor a claim no the effected part they can not void your warranty.
But to answer you question I think the replacements your looking into have a resistor built into lights. Ask Chris from Cork he would know if they do. I think those are from Japan from Mazda Japan so it should be a OEM part and hook right up.

That stuff coming out of your HUGE chrome exhaust you have mounted at an angle isn't power..It's Rice!!!

Sent an e-mail yesterday, no response. Called dealership too and they don't have much of a clue as well.

I am sure the tails will hook up just fine, my main concern is the potential of different voltages.

Re: Swapping to LED tails (different voltages?)

I sent an e-mail to Cork last week asking if the led tails would work for my '10 MZ3, and still no response. This is an upgrade I really want to make, and the price is reasonable considering what you're getting. I just need answers.

I replaced mine with these from corksport. Just plug them in they work out of the box, no problem.
