    Nothing worth the money vs a regular halogen.

    Because your DRl's are also your High beams

    Hopefully I can chime in and ask a follow -up .. I'm interested in changing the H7 lowbeams to LED in an attemt at improving regular nighttime driving . Not worried about DRL's as they work fine for what theyre used for . Any different thougts @Hyperion or anyone else ?

    What about for lowbeams to improve nighttime driving ? I run H7's and not concerned about DRL's.

    Philips Xtreme Vision or Philips Racing Vision. They are both halogen bulbs and will surely improve nighttime driving without blinding oncoming vehicles.

    My guess is that you have a 1st gen 3. If yes, you can also upgrade your high beam bulbs to 9011.

    The suggested halogen upgrades are best bang for buck.
    I do have drop in h7 hid's available for $135. However I've taken it a step further and will soon be offering a drop in projector retrofit kit for the 1st gens.

    OOo, that sounds interesting. Will the kit be the first generation mazda3? Not too many vendors making new things for the first generation mazda3.
