    Has anyone installed aftermarket headlights?

    Just got a touring the other day. Was curious if anyone has installed aftermarket headlights like these?

    They do look sharp. Aftermarket HID's in the factory touring lights are a much-needed improvement. If you just are going after the look of the grand-touring, go for it.

    For now I have hids in the stock housings. Saving money for brakes, then maybe the fog lights.

    No, I don't see the need in that. Probably just some slotted rotors and hawk pads.

    I just noticed a post on the cx5 club fb page 3 hrs old. A guy just installed these as a gift from his fiancé on his sport. He says they have a shutter (as they should) for high beams. These use osram h7 bulb which are high watt (ballast powered) headlight LED's not low power leds. http://www.ebay.com/itm/381915915654

    There are quite a few mazda fb pages including a tuning page where you find the latest on turbo skys, cams, ECU tuning (all sky engines) and built engines etc. A lot of people make remoarks here that are completely wrong because they aren't in the loop (not referring to this thread specifically).
