Hey everyone,

This is my first time on this website, and I was just wondering if any of you can help me out with my problems...I am 17 years old and my parents had just bought me a mazda 3 type S model for me over this past x'mas. I love the car and all, but I really really wanted to get the white or blue-ish headlights. Any ideas of where I can find them??? Also, this is my first stick shift car, I can drive it fine and all, but are there any tips for me so I can minimize the damages that I will be doing to my car?
Thanks guys.

Sincerely,

Rocky

Try looking at our sponsors :p

Polarion sells true HID's - much brighter/etc than your standard halogen headlights you have now. I couldn't say pricing offhand, although certainly a few hundred+. Take a look at their website.

Hoen-USA sells white/blue halogen's. Again, not sure about pricing.

Congrats, wish my parents would have gotten me a brand new car when I was 17. They threw me their 83 Toyota Cressida and got themselves a new car. :p

As far as getting light bulbs, you can go into any auto parts store such as Autozone and get some Silvia Silverstars. They are very good, looks good and functions good.

As far as driving a stick goes. My advice is to put the car into neutral at lights... I know the popular thing to do is to step on the clutch and leave it in gear but that will jack up your clutch over time. Other than that, enjoy your new car!!! :D

Pep Boys and Checkers carry APC. They have the Type S emblem. Funny, its on all their rice-a-roni products... from cell phone holders to plug in LED lights.

I have no idea, why don't you find out and tell us? :p I was told by my mechanic a while back, it was one of his pet peeves. He said you are still engaging the clutch wearing down the springs and plates or some sh!t like that. :?
