A dealership or independent can reprogram your computer to enable HIDs. This should eliminate the error message, depending on how your HIDs are wired. You may still get an error message if you use an aftermarket rebased kit, especially with a relay harness.

That said, the rebased kits that fit a HID bulb into your halogen projectors aren't the best option. The characteristics of a HID arc are very different from a halogen filament, and even if the arc is in the correct position (which it usually isn't) the optics of your halogen projectors won't focus the beam properly.

If you really want to add HIDs, the best way would be to replace your halogen projectors with HID projectors. Since these were an option on the C-Class it's pretty easy to do. Also, if you use the stock wiring, you can be guaranteed not to get error messages as long as HIDs are enabled in the computer.
