Is there a difference between HID and Xenon? Or are they the same. Some cars list their headlights with just Xenon and some say HID Xenons. Just wondering.

Xenon and HID are used interchangeably by most people. HID is the acronym for High Intensity Discharge and it's the method of producing lights without filament. Xenon is a common gas that is used in HID bulbs.
