i found this site and ordered some of the interior bulbs from him, i will tell you how it goes and all, and if you got the mazda 3 without xenon i would try the bulbs out
it would be less than 10 bucks
Hey Birdy,

Sorry for sounding like a skeptic, but I'm a firm believer that you pay for what you get. If the bulbs are cheap in price...chances are they could be cheap in quality and may have the potential of damaging any wiring or harness of the headlight unit. With that said, $2.99 is a good experiment price :) . Let us know how you fare with the results.

The main worry with cheap bulbs is explosion of capsule in the headlight system. Explosion of the capsule will scratch the interior of the projector ruining the light accuracy and then it becomes expensive to clean and replace.

AGREED with a_kaup!

Be careful and good luck Birdy.

I had a cheap replacement brake light/tail light bulb heat up enough that it melted the plastic around the light bulb connector and the bulb melted into it. I went without a tail light for 2 weeks while the dealership ordered a new wire harness for the tail light and it cost me $20. I would think that a head light harness would be even more expensive.
