of course you can. You can use any Xenon Projectors as long as they are both the same.. You'll see a lot ppl doing the fx or morimoto only because they are better than many other oem projectors, But at the end the decision its yours..(budget,$$$)

As to what you need is the same as any retrofit (ballast, Shrouds) perhaps you can use from the e36 as well..
