Paul, Obviously the headlight assembly that FR uses does not come with H9's with Xenon because when I removed the lamp a few days ago you could tell they were basic and clearly are stamped H9, plus when I went to multiple parts store they only sell the basic and according to Sylvania's web site they don't show anything in H9 must less with Xenon. They do show an H7 for the low and high beams for the Audi assembly but those do not have the socket only tabs out the bottom. You can find H9's on line but nothing I could see with Xenon either.
As for difference between Xenon and HID a true HID I do know the bulb is longer which might not fit in the projection assembly. Also, I am told there are wiring changes but I am not an expert in HID so only go by what I read. The one thing that would concern me are HID's not street legal? According to Sylvania their Xenon is:
- The style and attitude of HID lights
- 100% street legal and DOT approved
