Update:
Update: I received a new ballast, HID kit H7 for my new headlights. No error and no error canceler needed. This is maybe because of the ASIC technology.
They look like this (picture below).




What are ASIC Controllers?
An ASIC ballast uses an ASIC chip controller with real-time lamp-monitoring & power compensation and Ballast protections, Under 0.5% low defect rate & over 3 years ballast life. eliminating the need for error cancelling attachments.

ASIC Can-bus ballast (no error messages on dashboard on BMW, mercedes VW etc).
ASIC chip controller, only HELLA & Matsushita use this analog type inside of HID ballast in the world.

But I cant be 100% sure if they work on your car. But they might. They did on my car and I had some problems earlier.

I hope this information was useful!
Yes, there are plenty of Can bus HID available. I've personally tested 4 or 5 different CAN-bus kits and some worked and some didnt.

It is safe to say they are not all created =, so be aware they may work on your car, but not necessarily other BMW's. (this is because of software differences from vehicle to vehicle likely).

Also the price is a bit more compared to a generic HID kit.

What we found from HPB, is that the one he uses does appear to fit on the majority of cars.
