I searched around, and I'm suprised to see that there isn't an easy to find location for buying OEM HID headlight assemblies along with the associated hardware. Plenty of kits for modding the existing Halogen assemblies, or going a step further and retrofitting the projectors with units from a TSX or similar. I wonder if this is simply due to cost? Or maybe my search skills aren't up to snuff?

Is there something out there?

I'm close to getting a 3 I think, but I really just want HIDs and not all of the other stuff that it has to come packaged with.

Did you look in our forum sponsors section? There are several sponsors selling OEM Mazda parts.

You can look for some on ebay but it'll probably only include the headlight assembly. buying it from sponsor vendors will cost a lot.

In my last car I had my headlights modified by HIDtech.com. I bought a spare set of headlights on Ebay and sent it to them. They installed:

2 Valeo ECE projectors
2 Philips Ballasts
2 Philips 4100K Bulbs

It was pricey but the end result was reliable OEM HID.

Get a wire coat hanger from Target and bend/clip it to fit?

Here they are as received from HIDtech after the projector install:

The equipment installed was OEM for an Audi S4.
