The xenon lamps should last as long as the car in theory as there is nothing to wear out like on a filiment lamp. If you want more information then i suggest that you google HID lights which will explain how they work .
Its a bit optimistic to say they'll last the life of the vehicle. They should outlast the warranty period but over 6 or 7 years and its finger crossing time
