Post Adding Daytime Running Lights + anchorage hardware
I will be importing my US 1993 MX-3 to Canada (Quebec) and I assume I will have to add DRL, what is the easiest way for me to do so? If possible I would heir on side of using the OEM module, I can use the front signals as DRL (I have bulbs in the un-used portion of signal since I have Euro bumper that doesn't have side markers). Anyone who has done this or gone through hassle of importing let me know!

Post Re: Adding Daytime Running Lights
My mechanic back in Ontario used to work for Canadian Tire, and they were in charge of dealing with the cars coming in across the border. The trick they used to do was just to have the headlights wired in to turn on with the car. Could be done easilly, and could easilly be undone afterwards if you don't like it. DRL's use a resistor on the high-beam element.

True, can do that as a temporary fix then un-do later. Any idea on how to diy?

To be CSA compliant I also need tether anchorages for child restraints (anchorage hardware only) anyone know what this is? Mazda usa says I can buy from mazda canada... can I find it at junk yard?
