Did I get a decent deal?

I just bought a driver's side bi-xenon OEM projector for my 02 325xit for 180.00. This is in good condition with the ballast, ignitor, and bulb with no tabs broken. After doing a bit of research the price range is quite dispersed. Am I right that (black trim) KW and AL will fit my model year? I now need to find a passenger side for the same price but I doubt it. Using real-oem, several model numbers pop up for the black trim bi-xenon so it is quite confusing. Are all the bolt on? Thanks for any and all info guys.

My next question is: With my halogen 02 bmw 325xit what type of work do I need to do to get xenons fitted or bi-xenons fitted (whole assembly)? I know that there is a difference between the two as the high beam is hid. How's the wiring in my car right now? Can I just plug it in or do I need to do some splicing?

Here's the link that is most confusing. it seems that my car is wired for bi-xenons.
