Where did it ever say the MS3 had adaptive HIDs? My 08 MS3 GT HIDs certainly (to my knowledge) didn't adjust brightness according to ambient light... in addition to that, the Focus lights are great, but the MS3 HIDs were still better, they had a decent cutoff, they were a bright white, and had a wider visibility cone.

Just my opinion I guess, but if they were cheaper I would easily swap out for OEM HIDs on the Focus. One of the many things about my MS3 that I miss.

Its a good thing they dont have any on the lot with the 202a package or I would be in danger of impulse buy.... I had HID in my STi and I really miss them, they are well worth the money.

Nope. So far the only fix I've found is to change lanes... My rear view mirror is auto-dimming but it's rendered basically useless because my side mirrors aren't auto-dimming.

I just created an account to call you out on this.

No mazdaspeed has ever had adaptive HIDs. They have had ADJUSTABLE but not ADAPTIVE. And you can ONLY adjust them to 1 of 3 height settings... this to offset any added cargo weight.
