Aftermarket HID for Mazda3 [HELP]

Hi Mazda owners,
I bought an aftermarket HID kit for my Mazda3 and since the DRL is using the main headlight (that I install HID), DRL makes it flickers like crazy. I read in the forum that we can use relay and capacitor to make the current flow stable to solve the problem.

The problem is, I'm not really sure how to make the capacitor into the relay and I really need help solving this problem.

Anyone has experience in this?

Thanks in advance

if you make your HB your DRL's i will stab you in your sleep.

you can get fog lights of bcmazda3 (the car will still have the mounting points and the wiring even if it didn't come with it, most likely) or buy some hella fog lights from lordco or something...

^ lol.... I just found out that the HB on mazda3 is too bright even for DRL. Most car has DRL on their high beam (just few % brightness though). Can anyone help me do the trick with relay and capacitor?
