Did you even read the thread? I don't want to come off as an asshole, but I answered this question on the first page.

Of course they will fit.

As a matter of fact, these two headlights are the exact same thing and are completely interchangeable; they just have different lenses, inner trim, and corners.

The only issue would be electronic, and all you have to do is reprogram your LCM (the light switch in the car) to accept xenons. Again, a dealership or anyone else with GT1 diagnostic tools can do this for you. If your car is early enough, it might require a newer LCM that can be programmed over, which isn't too much of a stretch either.
