Xenon high beam flickering/off

High-beams (not flash to pass) flicker quickly, turn off, or flicker during driving. Rarely, they will stay on after a cold start, but quickly flicker and turn off after I move the car. Low HID beams always work.

Took it to a BMW tech, and told me there were no codes associated with it. Any thoughts?

sounds like a ballast. I dont know yet what the E90 has for ballast setup, but on my MINI the (BMW) Xenons have these damn French made ballasts that fail regularly and have those symptoms.
