Nah it doesn't really work that way. The housing doesn't make the HIDs its the bulb/ballast/ignitor. So you would have to get all of that, which is a kit basically. I would suggest getting a PNP HID kit. All you have to do is plug the ballast/ignitor into the stock headlight harness and put the new bulbs in and you're done. It actually doesn't take long. (well I don't know about bmws but on japanese/american cars it doesn't take long) And this is if you are NON-HID. If you decide to get a kit get a good one. I suggest TECH-ONE. They are expensive but I have never had any problems with them and when I did it was always taken care of.
