HID Conversion Kits for H7 Bulbs

I realize this is complicated by BMW's use of a 9006 wiring connection and an H7 bulb socket configuration on my 2002 530i. I am looking for something that will not cause a bulb-out type alarm and a wiring harness that adapts to the OE Hella lights.

Are there HID conversion kits that plug and play into the OE light assy?

Since the price has come down considerably for some kits, I am now very interested. HIDs don't seem to have any downside, ie, they have less power consumption, less heat, and more light output, plus the cool factor of whiter/bluer lights.

Cool

IMHO. eBay.

You can window shop there, and once you have decided... you can source it out from wherever.

OK, good advice. I like the "window shopping" idea.
