2006 BMW 325XI Halogen to Xenon (HID) Conversion HELP!

Hi, I am new to E90 forum and I have looked around for a LONG time trying to find an answer to this problem I have been having and finally decided to set up an account and just directly ask you guys for help. I have a 2006 325Xi and it came stock with halogen headlights and fogs. I converted the headlights to HID's with a philips kit that has built in canbus and also added a relay. I upgraded the fogs with a philips kit and added problem eliminators to get them to at least stay on but I can NOT get the error codes to go away. I have tried every combo of eliminators, resisters, relays I just got the car back from BMW dealer and they said they can not shut the codes off. The lights work perfect and I have no problems but the error codes. Please help! I dont know if I am posting in the right area, if I am not please let me know. Thanks!

use search, there are tons of threads about this, and a lot of the vendors sell error free conversion kits.
but please use a projector housing if you want to use HID bulbs...

Haha, yes I bought a new Halo Projector housing before convertion to HID's. I searched and read through prolly 100 posts and cant find anything that will work on mine. I tried the error free kits and everything else I have seen on posts. Is it possible for there to be no fix? With some models you just cant get the error code to go away??

Having a 2006 you're SOL. Live with the errors or code the car. Be happy your lights at least stay on without coding.
