Is amazing! It took about 2 hours to install everything (take bumper off, ect) but the results were well worth it!

Here are some pics!

And Big shout out to Olivier and Jim over at Xenonexpert.com Great guys and great product!

Why did you remove the bumper to install them?

makes it easier to do a clean install of the ballasts and wires.. etc

Its great when its late night, and I turn the head lights on...its like the whole street lights up, hehe.

I would definitely recommend this kit and xenonexpert.com

I cant imagine using the "stock" lights ever again, in any future car i drive.

Oh, and neeldub is correct, it made it very easy to find spots to mount the ballasts and run the wires.

Removing the bumper is totally optional. Most people don't do it because the Mazda 3 has enough space behind the headlight housings to do the install. Some people prefer to remove the bumper to have even more space and conceal their ballasts :)

Just be careful of the retaining clip that holds the lightbulb in, that thing could take an eye out.

It seemed pretty strong, i mean, i wouldnt put it in a vice grip or anything. I just mean be careful when you are loosining the screw that holds it in, cuz it will "fly" out and could take an eye out of you dont have a good grip on it.
