    Xenon headlamps don't have a dual filament bulb like the conventional H4 halogen lamps so you are wasting your time looking LankyAndy.

    I I have only seen Xenon Plus (Bi-Xenon) headlamps listed for USA spec cars, not the UK vehicles.

    The Bi-Xenon lights actually have a servo crontrolled shutter that breaks the reflector chamber in half to create the dip beam effect.

    If and when such things become available (not in the August 2005 - 2006 MY one anyway) you will be looking a complete headlamp assemblies and that will be VERY expensive.

    Xenon Plus is now an option.
