Light Change out...

Here are the best pics I could provide ... Sry :sarc :sarc

Main Driving Light are CATZ Galaxy Whites H1's:



Parking/City Lights are Silver bulbs:



White LED's on license plate lights:




I really like the look and the pictures really can't do them justice....

Much better than OEM!:D

How did you changed out the bulb?? it seems impossible to change out the bulb without taking off the bumper, i have a Mazda6 s and i guess the engine and the intake took all the space under the hood...it's so hard to reach to the back of the headlight assemblies to change the bulb...let me know how you changed it, did you have to take off some parts to change it?

Not hard at all... Start with passenger side first... There is a black cover sealing the rear of the headlight housing. On top is the fastening latch. Once off, you can reach inside and feel the H1 bulbs and harness... Easy, unplug and install. Now the Drivers side and Parking lights were tough and it helps to have 2 ppl and one with small hands :)

One person pushes back on air filter box while other reaches inside to change bulbs... Just a reminder, Parking lights pull straight out with some wiggling and effort, they DO NOT twist or turn... Trust me... It's kinda hard to explain, but you dont have to remove ANYTHING, and there's no way too get really good photos...

Hi Simple_Man , I have a V6 Engine, and to me it seems like the passenger side is much harder to change than the driver side. I just order a PIAA Plasma Spark Blue H1 (7500K HID) light bulb straight from Japan. and I got them today. I can't wait to put it on it!! ^_^

Well, you got me there.... I have not even seen the V6 engine compartment... I can only speak on behalf of the 4 cyl. Sry, you in uncharted territory! Those should look real nice... Their about $100 aren't they?

Yes, I got it on Ebay and with shipping it cost about 96 dollars. by the way, here's a picture of the V6 engine of M6, you can see on the passenger side there's a radiator fluid container which makes it impossible to change the bulb :(
