Are you going to keep the headlight housing and just replace the halogen to Xenon?

If that;s the case look at DDM and Mtec kit, but ask alot of questions to make sure it close to plug and play possible.
Afew things, there maybe no actual slot in the housing for the balast so you have to mount it using some ingenuity, Also there naybe error code (again ask the seller). The code is coming from LCM thinking the halgen bulb is blown, well when it sends small electric current and try to measure it, it fails to see the halogen bulb (since you have the balast instead). Also when this occur you may see flicker on the xenon bulb, periodically. You may need capaciotr to supres the test spike signal.

Hope that helps a bit.

You will need the headlight housing that has projectors for the HID. Don't just buy HID bulbs and stick them in the regular halogen headlight housing.
Ben, I believe all E60 after 2005 has prjector headlight and since his is 528 I assume it's 2007 or younger. I could be wrong about it for sure so OP needs to check it on his 528i.

BTW, it's DDMtuning who sells the HID kit. I never order from them so that's my disclaimer.
