Best Halogen to Xenon headlights upgrade?

How did you upgrade your factory halogen headlights to Xenons?

Options:
- installed factory Xenon units (new or used) and modified the wiring harness and coded modules
- bought aftermarket Xenon units that were plug-n-play
- retrofitted HID projectors, xenon bulbs, ballasts, etc., into halogen housings
- sprinkled magic pixie dust on them and called it a day

Personally, if I had halogen housings I would probably just find a fancy halogen bulb that simulates the whiter daylight light of xenons.
Something like a Philips Diamond Vision bulb or a Sylvania zxe.
