Guys,
I just finished installing my xenon and I dont have any errors..If you dont connect 5&6 together (ie, taking power away from the high beam shutter), you wont get any error.

F****. I didnt get anything last night after the install, but got the error message this morning . Sorry to get your hopes up. As of right now, Im running a Xenon rather than a Bi-xenon system. The only extra I put in is the ground (splice 2+4 together).

It's VERY easy to put in, but you will have to go get it programmed.

You need to get it programmed. Trust me.

You are buying a generic module, which then must be programmed to your vehicle's specific options/etc.

Soo...I installed mine (finally) yesterday and today. The Xenons are working, but I am getting a recurring error (goes off every couple of minutes) and I think the brightness is changing after a few minutes of driving (but that might have just been a trick of my eyes)

Any ideas as to why my error is recurring (actually dinging again every few minutes)

Ok, so STRANGEST thing....Sunday Night and Yesterday Morning they were acting all pyscho (constant error message, dinging, etc...)

Later in the morning (by like 20 minutes) and the rest of the day, behaved as expected....MAYBE it has something to do with it being 46 out yesterday morning...who knows....we will see this morning.

im getnn my xenons soon this week
i bought them from scandulz, and he said hes already wired for halogen to xenon conversion for me.
so once i install them, ill just get an error light? cuz if thats the only thing, than i can live with a small error light, specially if it goes away. but he told me that sometimes if u leave the car at idle for a bit, they start flickering???? maybe that was bcuz he was tryn to use HID's to get rid of the error?

all i wanna know is if i just install them and get the error light as expected, everything else will work perfectly fine??? no flickering of headlight or anything???

mr crutch have you tried asking the dealer to reprogram your computer? i just had mine done for 120 euro (non xenon related) maybe that will solve this problem for you. Let me know as i am wanting to get some euro xenons while im overseas.
