2006 325i e90 Headlights

I bought some after market xenon headlights from DDM auto tuning. I installed the headlights and they worked when my car battery was on, but when I started my car , the headlight warning signal popped up. The xenon lights did not turn on when the engine was running. When the engine was off, they worked just fine. What can I do to solve this problem? I've called 3 different Places and that seems to be their biggest problem.

You need to code your car for xenons or use relays.

How do I code it for xenons? Do I need a shop to do that for me? I also was thinking of getting angel eyes instead of xenons. Could the dealership do that? Or is it too much of a rip off there?

You wouldn't want a dealer to do this stuff.
And they probably wouldn't anyway.
