Default Headlight retrofit

My car has the pre-facelift front end, and high spec bi-xenon headlights with AFS cornering lamps.

The facelift cars seem to add swivel of the b-xenon lights as well, and I was wondering, are the facelift headlights able to fit prefacelift cars.

I am aware I would probably have to change the headlight range control.

I know the bonnet and the bumper are different for the facelift cars but the headlamps seem the same. Has anyone tried this?

Mike
