The factory xenon bulb will fit the non xenon projector. But you have to custom make a base for the xenon bulb to sit and can be lock into place so it won't move. My friend uses BMW xenon parts for his Accord, and changed the base so it will fit into a 9006 socket and it will lock right in place. It just takes you the extra time. I will better off and get a Philips 6000k HID upgrade kit for H7 socket.
