    they will work but they wont be a straight fit.
    bmw have a unique bulb holder for their headlights,and this holder is incompatible with a hid kit.
    you can buy a modified holder on ebay...or find a kit which has them included.
    i got my kit from that very seller,but he doesnt seem to have what you need in stock atm :(
    another point to note is,if you are fitting them in a standard reflector headlight,you'll need the H7R hid bulbs.
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
