Headlight question

Hey everyone! My apologies if this is a stupid question, But I am wondering since I bought the CX-3 GS, i did not get the sweet LED headlights, Just the halogen lights. I am wondering if the Halogen headlights that came with it have a projector lens in it. This way I can add and HID kit and get some nice bright lights.

Thank you in advance for all your help!

All models come with projector lens. Adding a HID kit is an easy upgrade.

Thanks DJ9999! I had them on my previous car and they were brutally bright without the projector, which I assume made them not street legal. I think in a projector I should be ok. I really like having bright lights for night driving.

Headlights

I like the fact that I can leave my headlights on bright and when another car approaches the lights will automatically dim. Once past, they will go on bright again.

Red, mine came with H11 55W halogen (yellow like the sun haha) I am grabbing a 55W H11 canbus hid kit with the 6000K bulbs soon. I had them on my old car, and I have a serious dislike for the shitty halogens I have now. Kind of miss being given the finger because my lights were so bright.

Red face Headlights

Did you figure out what kind of headlights used to change the stock halogens? I just want to have a brighter/whiter output in my GS model. Can you link me to the product by chance? Thank you!!!

Ive already done this upgrade, and Im replying to another who made similar thread, so any info you require as to what you need and method of install, I can answer there. Its definitely worth the upgrade, and was easy work once I realized I needed the harness.

Greetings from Mexico, my girlfriend just this new CX-3 (Soul Red) it's a beauty. I saw that on the highest trim in the USA you guy get those nice headlights, that personally, they give the car another look. Does anyone know if there's a chance to change the headlights,

@eddiejuarez welcome to the forums! I am thinking you are asking about the LED headlights that come on the top model in Canada and the USA, I am surprised they don't do that in Mexico. I don't have them on mine either so I will be upgrading to the HID light kit soon. I don't know if you can order the LED setup from Mazda, but I am thinking they will also make you upgrade the wiring harness too. I would maybe wait until they offer an aftermarket kit that will plug and play into the existing wiring harness or keep watching a wreckers yard in case anyone has their CX-3 in an accident and written off. I am not sure if I am correct with the lighting by the way I have explained it, I am sure @anchorman would know forsure!
