Question Possible Xenon / HID upgrade ??

The cost of a kit to convert the Euro headlights to the HID/Xenon type is absolutely ridiculous.

I was wonder this...............

I obviously have access to many different chassis xenon application that are OE for Benz. Would it be possible to use the ignitors, projectors, bulbs, etc from a later model MB & install them into the housing of the (W201) Euro's.

The voltage needed was a concern, but I thought about using a relay to handle the extra uppppfff needed to fire them off.

Any suggestions?
