I've been browsing this forum for a while (especially in the post your best picture of your 3) thread. Anyways, I've decided to get a mazda 3 hatchback by Q3 of 2009. I have a question about the angel eyes though. When you turn the low beam lights on, will the angel eyes turn on? And what about the normal low beam lights? Does installing angel eyes prevent the normal low beam lights from working? Sorry, I'm still new to the whole modification thing.

its all how you wire them,

I have mine wired so they are on all the time. Or you can wire them to your parking lights so they are on then. I havent heard anyone wire them to the lights themselves though. And no they will not get in the way of anything high or low beam.

Are you sure there will be 09 hatches later in the year? The 2010's are hitting the lots now and are not angel eye compatible.

True but my thinking is it may take a bit of time for the aftermarket to catch up. When they do, I look forward to expanding my angel eye installing skills :p

I hope by the time I buy a car, I will still be able to buy the 2009 mazda 3. If not, I don't mind buying a used one. Even 2008 model is fine with me. I really hate the look of the 2010 mazda 3. Everytime I look at it, it looks like its putting on a huge smile. I don't think I can get used to it.

By the way, does anyone know if installing HID lights on a mazda 3 is illegal or not in Vancouver Canada? Does the mazda 3 even have the auto adjusting thing that I've been reading about?

Technically, headlight modifications are illegal. That being said, i've never heard of anyone having troubles from the police. Some in Canada, use these in place of their DRLs.

Thanks!

and for the DRL, what part of the headlamp is on when DRL is on? I think I'm going to go to the local mazda dealership tomorrow to check out the mazda 3 :)
