The i/ma variation here has the same meaning for both words. If it does not accept one or the other, report it.

E huli hema i laila. I keep making the same mistake here. What is the difference?

I wonder too. Ma laila - appears to be used for turning left, but "i laila" for turning right.
Anyone have an understanding of the grammar?

Why isn't it "E huli i hema..."?
