E39 Facelift Halogen to Xenon HELLA OEM retrofit

I got these headlights from ebay and I I want to retrofit my Facelift Halogen 2001
They are xenon OEM hella from 2003 530i



last night in installed them on 2003 530i car with xenon
( simple swap just to be sure that all is in working condition ) before Halogen swap

2 questions :
1 I need to do some light correction , right side it down left side is up
As far as i can see adjusters are not broken and auto leveling system is working
How you guys adjust your headlights ?
2. Xenon light is kind of purple . My OEM is white ... is it headlights or bulbs ?
just strange for me , i am kind of new to this staff
thanks
