Plug n Play Headlights ?????

I'm new here, also new with E90's i just purchased a 2006 330xi among the few thing i will like to do to my car one of them is getting all clear headlights i have been reading on the site and the more i read n search the more confused i get like not all aftermarket headlights will work properly with my car like i can get some error code or message if there not the proper light bulb on the headlights. These are the ones i like(Chrome CCFL Headlights at HID Xenon Lights) i was wondering if these are plug n play or do i need something else or if any one know which headlights are plug n play I'll appreciate the information.
Thank You in advance

Here's the answer. Only decent plug and play will be Depo headlights from ebay seller Fishcake, anything that runs CCFL halos are generally cheap garbage with crap projection beams. As I've owned a pair and they are plug and play but a big NO.

If you can afford a decent set I would say send it over to Luis@OSS and have them retrofit to your liking and also plug and play for your model. From here my friend good luck as the saying goes "you get what you pay for."

no problem, just look for some on this forum. Itll look 1000x better than if you get ebay "projector" lights.

Yes those are fine for the money, but you won't have two things.
First, it's not oem.
Second, the projectors beam is not quality, it gets the job done but it isn't stock xenon or retrofit quality

Aftermarket lights like Depo are not worth the money or time to deal with them, OEM is the way to go.
