I saw it says clear side markers on the new updated mazda.ca site...does that mean they coming to Canada (N.America)?

Probaly not. Still waiting for a aftermarket company to make clear or smoke sidemarkers for the 6 and 8.

It's called auto light control and it most likely refers to the lights turning on by themselves at night but NOT if you pass through a tunnel. So a sensor will notice this and just keep the DRLs on instead of turning the low beams on.

Any other takes?

Dru: Could you also put your location in your profile? Thanks!

Actually, when you go through a tunnel (with no sunlight) the sensor switch the lights on and turn them off when you get out of it.

Solder the positive wires for the front turn lamps and the side markers together.

any links to aftermarket side markers?
im looking for either a red bulb to go in there or if i had my way, a red side marker instead of the clear, i think that would look sharp.
