DIY Halogen to Xenon ?? Possible?

Is there a DIY for Xenon to Halogen ???

Need a set of headlights for an E90 335xi it originally comes with HID Xenon headlights but I want to replace it with aftermarket eBay headlights. It's a daily so I don't care about aftermarket or how it'll look as long as it works.

For some reason the eBay aftermarket headlights which are halogen state it won't work with HID factory equipped vehicles? Is it just a wiring issue or is the actual headlight different?

What would I have to do to make those eBay headlights work with the car?

Should be plug and play. If you have adaptive headlights you will get an error on your dash.

I went from adaptive xenons to the rolling gears eBay headlights and my only issue is the adaptive headlight error.

Funny I'm interested in doing the opposite. My 328 has halogens and I'd love a set of xenons. I'd be interested in buying yours if they're in working order...
