Where's the best place to get myself a pair of late spec black headlights other than a Mazda dealer.

Also one of my fogs got smashed the other night when a fox ran in front of my car and the dealer has quoted me almost £200 for a replacement any ideas where I can pick one up for less than that?

Ebay is always an option....ive seen black headlights come up on there every so often.

I would say scrappies as well...but its very rare to see the Sport's in them!

Hope you have some luck finding the bits you need :thumbright:

You can actually split your headlights and paint them inside, matt black. Unfortunately you need ot remove the bumper to get the lights out, which is a pain in the a**e.....
As for the foggies, well the OEM ones are shit anyway. Theres a set of Ring fog lights that are a perfect fit and available in Halfords for about £25. Can't remember the exact model, but someone on here has replaced theirs with the Ring ones. :thumbleft:

I quite like the look of the clear/white headlights on your black sport. I think some white side repeaters would set them off well ;)

Once you go black you never go back, black would look superb on a (black) car.
I'm still looking for some for mine too (LHD though)

The Ring fogs Neil is referring to are the Ring Roadrunners :) their excellent

late reply: they fit but they're slightly bigger and thicker than regular.



As for the headlights, anyone interested in some RHD uk sport headlights
with chrome inners? They're still open and I have the chrome part outside them,
so great for anyone who wants to paint them, upgrade their facelift or whatsoever.

Well you know what they look like, just the RHD of mine:

Bit late to the thread on this one, but are the Ring Roadrunners the round ones or the rectangular ones: http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stor ... &langId=-1

I'm presuming the round ones as a direct replacement for the duff ones...

Oh, and is there any where over here that does the delete plates, instead of replacing the fogs? Or should I look on US version of fleabay?

Is this for a sport? If it's not, I can pull the blanking plates out of mine. I don't think they were much - they're a proper mazda item and replaced the fogs that got smashed!
