Installing xenon lights after the fact?

I'm looking at getting a used 328i and I found a car with a good deal, but a deal breaker is that it doesn't have the lighting package. Is there a way to install them aftermarket?

Thanks

Wait for some totalled out 3 series and see how much a salvage yard would charge for Xenon lights. Hopefully less than retail on a new set of replacements.

I am considering doing that with a backup camera....
