Will 2013 headlights fit on my 2010 gt?

I was wondering to see if the 2013 headlights would fit on my 10 gt I'm sure this was probably asked before

They'll fit, but the wiring is different if your 2010 did not have that option. The 2013's had true HID's with ballasts, that your current 2010 may not have.

Read here. Using the search gets you here:

Start searching and reading on harness changes that are required.

Not fair to ask us to do all your homework!

Might also be easier to do this:

Your existing harness will have the wiring for a conventional bulb with two filiments; a standard low beam and high beam bulb. You now have the requirement of wiring your stock 2010 headlight wiring into a ballast, as shown in your pic off of Ebay.

Not hard to convert your harness. A simple search on Google nets you this:

I'd try to do the 2013 headlight swap, can't beam OEM quality. Personally, my favorite headlights for 10-14 are the 10-12 OEM HID's (which my GT came with fortunately).
