    In case you care about lighting performance, that's a crappy mounting location for driving/spot beams. They project further when mounted higher on the car. It's an ideal location, however, for fogs (which is why Mazda put them there).

    Just install the wiring/relay kit that's included with the foglights--it will protect your stock wiring harness.

    Hey guys, I've been getting some PM's about the aftermarket fogs that are for sale at WWW.JCWHITNEY.COM and for a while back they sold the yellow lenses for the fogs in my sig and avatar, as I was getting some replies I decided to call JCWHITNEY myself to help you guys get the part # for the yellow lenses, but they unfortunatley do not offer them anymore, they still sell the clear lens and the amber lens (which btw are nowhere near yellow, they look exactly like stock turn signals, very orange/amber). So buy the clear smooth lens and buy some decent yellow bulbs and they will work perfrect.

    Again, I hooked it up to my stock wiring and for two yrs now run the same bulbs they came with and haven't had any wires melt of any kind.

    INFO WWW.JCWHITNEY.COM PART NUMBERS 73ZX6025T (AMBER) & ZX736025T (CLEAR).

    PICS: http://www.mazdas247.com/forum/showthread.php?t=94393

    Hope this helps.

    Nothing special about it. It's just a a regular 100 watt H-3 bulb with a fuse. No biggie, but it is bright.

    i'm in the same boat. my Catz driving lights came in TODAY! i cant wait to get them in! i got the 55w version, and might bump up to the 85w if the stock wiring can handle it. Do i need to use the harness it came with, or can i just use my factory harness and cut the connector??? someone help me out! Thanks
