Question 2010 gt hatch hid assembly swap

Hey there guys

Wondering if I can swipe some 2011 or 12 hid assemblies and swap them w mine cuz I want that blue ring around the hid projector thing . I have the hid's in my 2010 already (oem ).. Anyone know if this works?

14' Mazda3/axela corksport short ram intake + 2 1/4" muffler delete.

There are a couple types of assemblies that have the blue ring around. Mine is a SkyActiv NON-HID pictured below:

As for swapping them out, I'm sure the assemblies will fit just fine in your GT hatch (Mine's a hatch, too) but as for fitment of the HID bulbs inside these assemblies, I cannot confirm they'll fit in the assembly like mine.

Or were you referring to these?

If you were talking about these, I'm sure they're just a direct swap. HID with mirror reflection for hi-beam function and an interior LED/incandescent DRL.

I don't know the cost of the newer style HID headlamps but if your looking at New OEM headlights, get ready for sticker shock!

My '07 was in an accident recently and the drivers side HID needs to be replaced. The dealer quoted $975 and that did not include mounting brackets. Good thing her insurance is paying for it.

If your just wanting a blue ring, why not just disassemble your current headlights and paint them?

If anything can go wrong, Fix it! (To hell with Murphy!)
