Ok. I've aplied Xenon in my car, as I had halogen bulbs.
If you car already came with bi-xenon, then it's natural you don't know what I'm talking about.

Source the part number from realoem.com. The wiring can be purchased from the dealer as a 6 inch piece. The contact bushing is on the wire. It plugs into pins 2 and 32. It's all available online.
