    Exclamation Need to replace aftermarket HID's

    We bought my wife's 2008.5 Mazda3 GT with aftermarket HID headlights which totally suck. Now one is flickering and randomly going out when she's driving in the dark. Not good. I want to replace them but not sure what the best options are out there these days, and not sure what we have right now in terms of whether just the bulbs were replaced or the whole housing etc. Looking for recommendations.. whatever will be bright and reliable. Thanks!

    Get yourself a hid kit from these guys here http://www.prolightz.com/hid/hid-sys...bulb-type.html
    Morimoto is the best in the business, sometimes others' kits just don't measure up.

    Otherwise if you don't want to go hid, you can put an Osram Rallye H7 in with is 700 more lumens than your oem

    Modifications? I've forgotten more than I remember. Click here for the list.
