As the topic states. Can't get a clear answer off Magura.

It wasn't to be. -_-

As Ben says, they fit.  You can fit the HC3 blades to any of the latest MT-series bodies as far as I know.  I had them on a set of MT2 bodies with no problems.  They were easier to install than the standard MT2 blades even, despite Magura saying they're not compatible.

Do they come with installation instructions and does it require a re-bleed?

Yeah, i believe they do come with instructions, although to be honest its simply a case of tapping out the pin that holds the lever in, replacing the lever, and tapping the pin back through.

I haven't had to rebleed at all on installation of any new levers on mine, so wouldn't expect so :)

No need to re-bleed - there's a little retaining plate that holds the piston in place so it doesn't go anywhere.  It's super easy to fit them - they don't have a weird spring setup like the stanndard MT2/4/5 levers, so it's much more straight forward.  The only thing to try and avoid is tapping the lever pin completely out of the body.  They come with a new one, but if you can keep the old one partially in the body it's way easier to tap it back in.  Think of it like splitting a chain, basically.
