I dont really wanna be the d-bag blinding everyone going down the road lol.
Nope. Just ballasts, wiring and bulbs to fit into original projectors.

Not really. They come with Halogen-optimized projectors. If you put HID bulbs into a projector designed for halogen bulbs, you get some light going in directions it shouldn't go. To properly upgrade to HID you need to swap in projectors made for HID (retrofit), or factory Mazda 6 HID headlights (like mine has, as well as all speed6's (though I'm not sure if all wiring is compatible))

Either way, be advised that doing so is technically illegal.. though it's difficult to tell without scanning the VIN to determine if the car had HID from factory since all 6's have projectors.

The HID/speed6 versions are the same projector with a different bulb hub. They really aren't optimized for HID either. The mazda3 has some awesome projectors though.

I have to disagree. I have factory HID projectors in my headlights and also have a set of scrap halogen projector headlights from a 2007. In comparison, the halogen projector bowls are a bit wider, and the lens holder is riveted to the bowl, whereas mine are able to be fully dismantled.

What year are your scraps from? My stock projectors I could fully disassemble and they were halogens. Helped with painting a friend with a speeds bezels and his were exactly the same as mine other than the mounting holes were in a different spot.
