Upgrading Headlights

Hey Guys!
I was curious if it was possible to put in the headlights in my '08 that are used by Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti, and other luxury cars. They are the blue ones that actually take a while to warm up. I don't have a name or anything. Also, Are they even brighter than the ones in there now?

Thanks!
Andrew

projector headlights are different from regular headlights in that projectors take the light and focus it through a lense (like your standard projectors used for movies and meetings) where was regular headlights are reflected off a reflective backing and angled forward.
