    the only problem with devin's mod is that when you switch to the parking lights your headlights ( HID) will come on.

    so there's no way of just having parking lights on.....

    that's the only bad thing but then again you never do that anyways so it doesn't matter.
    I must be confused by your statement. If you turn it one click forward from the off position, don't just your parking lights come on?

    That's how mine is but I have an '07

    The reason why his HIDs come on from one click forward to the off position is his HIDs power source is tapped on to his corner light. When his corner lights turn on, his HIDs turn on.

    Yeah, I figured he used it to tap into as a source. I just wasn't sure though. I'm sure there's a way around it isn't there? I'm sure I've read somewhere that 04-06 have been able to have just the parking lights on.

    is this the same for a speed? I am thinking that I want to disable my DRL's and have the fogs and angel eyes on instead. When i put on my HID's can i then turn off the fogs and angel eyes with the fog switch if i want too?

    Do you want full control over your setup? If you do then just do both mods as most people have done them. If you wire it this way your fogs/angeleyes won't come on automatically though. You will have to turn them on/off manually. They will turn off when the car turns off with a slight time delay.

    To answer your question. Yes, once you turn your HIDs on you can turn off your fogs (depending on if you wire them to the stock switch).

    DRL disable on 2007 - pull DRL fuse
    Ind fog light mod - same as pre '07

    Speaking of bypass....you should bypass using a kit altogether. Problem solved! HID kits are illegal for a reason, the produce dangerous glare to other drivers. The projectors you have are bad for glare because the are DESIGNED to produce glare (2 holes in each cutoff shield), add a super bright lightsource and voila!

    As much as i like my Mazda3 and being a part if this forum, i hope everyone that has a kit gets a ticket or in a headon accident because you blinded someone coming towards you.

    HID kits are for kids, who also like to pretend they're something they're not.

    i'm guessing the 5.0 in your sig is driven on the street...if so, regarding the nitrous bottle shown in the open hatch:

    Well excuse me, but the HID kit thing is getting alittle out of hand, they blind the shit out of people and they're dangerous not to mention they're often made by the lowest bidder and don't offer the kind of light control found in proper HID systems. Sorry if you don't like my other car or what I have to say.

    BTW, you can drive on the street with a bottle in the car, it just can't be hooked up and the system must be purged. I get pulled over lots because of how it sounds but I've never gotten a ticket from a cop, only from track and I think it said.....10.54sec at 136MPH.

    "What's goin on here?"

    lol, HID kits are a personal preferance. You come across kind of harsh kenghk. HID kits done properly don't blind people so don't hark on HID kits. The 3 for example can use HIDs without blinding other people because it has a 'cutoff' point acceptable for HID lighting.

    It comes down to personal preferance. We're not ricers here.

    I don't think my HID's blind anyone, as I have them properly aimed. As for the quality, have you done your research? There are some very good quality HID kits out there(prolumen, Phillips original).

    We are all entitled to our opinions in regards to what people do to their cars. What one person likes, another person may dislike. I may not like a mod someone did to their car BUT I keep my opinions to myself. As long as the person who did the mod like it thats what counts. To each their own. The forum here is to share ideas and such.
    Pete, you are entitled to your opinions but with remarks like the one you made, you're not going to be too popular here...

    HIDs aren't blinding, as long as you aim them properly.... Have you seen the cars without projector lenses? They are the blinding ones. They dont have a center point of focus through the lens, which causes the light to bounce everywhere causing your so called blinding.... I dont think people are blinded by our HIDs, I think they are intrigued how the look of it on a 3... As always in a bias thread, its your opinion...

    And your so called HID hate thread.... You should post it elsewhere.... This doesn't have anything to do with bypassing...

    SFW is right... if they are aimed properly they arent blinding, infact they would only cross your eye path if the car is going up/down a hill or over bumps.

    What you are probably refering to are those conversions on old cars, that normally ran halogen lights with the giant reflector shields behind them. I agree that those are annoyingly bright and just hurt my eyes.

    HID's should come standard on every car just because of the amount of light they put out and the safety value to the driver.

    First of all this is the wrong thread to argue that Hid's are for kids. Hid's is probably one of the first mods most people on the board do because it's practical and we have the proper housing to NOT blind people if they are aimed properply. So I don't know what you're saying about blinding people kenghk.

    You are ALL misinformed. Drive you're cars right up to a wall and have a look at you're output. See the 4 oval patterns above the cutoff? That's called glare. Huge amounts of glare. Visit the hidplanet.com forum and educate yourselves on HID. You guys know that the return wire of the bulb should always face down for proper light focus? right?.....how come yours are sideways.

    And I know I sound harsh to you but people that stand up against things that are wrong always come accross a bit harsh.
