    I'm still searching the forums... but on the headlight topic, is it easy to change from the standard to LED bulbs for low beams? I see conversion kits on Amazon. I just need the lights to work, I'm not trying to make the car anything special. Just love driving it! Thanks in advance, Mazda people!

    I've learned to un-clip/re-clip the dreaded bulb clip which requires Keebler Elf-sized fingers with the strength of the angry Hulk.
    I've also learned through trial and error that the cheapest H7 bulbs have the lowest draw and last wayyy longer. I think the higher draw might overload the wiring harness? But I'm not that savvy, it's just a guess (:

    That makes sense to me.
    I'm thinking it's more of a heat thing cooking the wires and connectors
    The wires leading to the bulbs are usually ok except for the last few inches near the bulb.

    LED's are way more efficient and put out a less heat but I have no experience with them and don't know how reliable they are.
