the projectors for xenon bulbs are different than the projectors for halogen bulbs, halogen projectors can be modified so they work well with xenon but I'm not sure how, and make sure you don't get the "8000K HID XENON" Bulbs at Autozone or ones that have a filament in them with a blue coating on the glass

thats where a lot of spare time is spent with a dremel and a spare set of housings because it might take you about 3-4 weeks if you can put a few hours in a week so you need another set of headlights
