HEADLIGHT BULBS - LOW BEAM HID 9500

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII

Electrical problem
1998 Lincoln Mark VIII V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 93000 miles

I bought a 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII about 3 years ago. My headlight bulbs are starting to fail and I discovered it is a huge hassle to deal with the HID 9500 low beam bulbs that I would have expected to be commonly available. Although new to me, this seems to be a developing problem for many people through internet research.
Could you advise me on whether it would be better to pay $100 -$200 for a used bulb on Ebay or is it possible to get a conversion kit for this model of car wheither it is Halogen or alternate HID system? I appreciate any light you can shed on this Detroit dissapointment.
