Newer style headlights for my GTI

I have a 2010 GTI and I'm wanting to know if I can put headlight assemblies out of like a 2012 or 2013 GTI in my 2010 model without having to cut wires or splicing etc...? THANKS RICK

If you have the halogens (older style headlights) then you can't swap the xenon (LED projector) headlights from a newer/higher trim optioned GTI without extensive rewiring, ect.

However there are several aftermarket kits for the older halogen headlights that allow for direct plug and play replacement, although none anymore are true replicas of the nicer OEM xenon versions.
