AFAIK an alignment is not needed when replacing Xenon bulbs.

Could be the case if you have the Adaptive option though.

Other than that, there is a youtube video of a guy replacing a Xenon in a 3 series (I think), that made it look quite straightforward.

Not sure why there are several different types of Xenon bulbs, other than color or temperature, but maybe that incompatibility caused your apparent alignment issue.
