I have the same desire to update my 2014. What I've seen is there is an aftermarket kit of unknown quality/complexity. Have not seen anyone who did it by getting OEM used lights and related parts, the way I'd prefer to do it. Apparently either way there's quite a bit of wiring that's different from the std halogen lights, so not a plug and play.

It's possible but it will be very expensive because the OEM Bi-xenon headlights are quite expensive and would still need to do some retrofitting and configuring using MB-specific diagnostic tools (Xentry) to flip the car, software-wise, from halogen to xenon.
I looked into this myself when I got my car and the effort and money involved were not worth for me. I went with high quality bi-xenon plug-and-plug headlights for $600 and I couldn't be happier. Sure I don't have the turning headlights and the auto HI/LO feature, but they're not economically feasible for me at 3x the cost I paid.
