Pre-facelift and facelift XENON headlight conversion

Hey guys I purchased a Xenon light from this guy and to begin with my car is a 99 e46 sedan, he sent me a 2002 e46 sedan light, now i was just wondering if you can change it to a prefacelift light. My car was in a accident, and the I have the original light but only the insides are broken, is there anyway to change it, or should I just return it back to him, I think I have all the parts to change it over ie. cover etc, but am not sure on the ballast or grey computerized portion, any help would be greatly appreciated.
