Hey guys. Is there a thread that lists the different eyelid options for the 5 door mazda3? I found two styles that I like so far.

I like these because it looks different with the piece that wraps around the side of the light. I guess they are the speedline eyelids.

I also heard good things about these. They are the partplaza eyelids. I like those because they have a more aggressive look to them.

Are there others? Also, does anyone have better pictures of either of them?

I also noticed that they look different on Mazdaspeed and regular mazda3's because of the way that the hoods/grill is on them. The Mazdaspeed eyelids look a little out of place because the eyelid starts below the hood line.

Thanks for the help.

I like the 2nd style too. I recently bought them myself but have to paint them.

However, tigermack has the 1st set on his hatch and they look terrific.

+ 1 Fitment is perfect, just need to add lots of double sided 3M gray tape.

I bought partplaza ones last night. I am sure I will be happy with them. Do you guys replace the double sided tape with better stuff or does it hold pretty well?

I replaced mine, Partsplaza states the tape that is on there is just for placement.

I put the wider tape and lots of it, then I use a heat gun to get it all warm, press firm and then tape it down on top of the eyelids, let it set for a day.

Remove tape and it will fit perfectly and conform.

The fitment is almost perfect though.
