Hi Jamesy - Xenon lamps are nice but replacements are pricey. A headlamp unit costs around 120 plus - a bulb at approx 50 - plus the necessary ballast at about 100. These are after-market prices and that doesn't cover the cost of fitting which on many new cars involves removing the front bumper - I'll stick with my good old halogens thank you. If you had a slight front end shunt it could cost 1000 alone to replace the headlights
