Both halogens and LEDs are available for the Mazda Protege5.

Halogen replacements resemble a typical bulb with a filament and are available in different colors.What are the benefits of using LED headlights?
Whether you opt for LED conversion kits or swap out your factory headlights for aftermarket LED assemblies, there are several benefits to using LEDs in your Mazda Protege5.

- LEDs are very responsive. They are able to turn on and provide full and complete illumination promptly.

Halogens have been in use in vehicles since the early 1900s, and they have stood the test of time. They are both reliable and widely available.
