Retrofitting bi xenon ahl parts into different housing?

Is it possible to retrofit the bi xenon ahl parts from an oem housing into an aftermarket housing?

I wouldn't, but anything is possible with time and money..

Probably way easier to cosmetically modify the OEM housing

The more I looked into it the more it sounds like a nightmare of a challenge. Plus I came across some euro's so I'll just leave well enough alone, for now at least.

Good thing. Btw I could provide everything (e.g. euro headlights) off German eBay. But shipping to the US is pretty expensive.
