Xenon Super White

As the title suggests i am thinking of upgrading just the headlight dip and main and the fog light bulbs to Xenon super white bulbs.
Would this cause any errors to pop up on the dash diaplay ?
I have done the swap in the past but never on a car with can bus,does the B-max even have can bus ?
Thoughts appreciated.

The B-Max does have a canbus however I replaced my standard halogen lights with some nice Xenon ones and no errors.
Just bear in mind that you will need to cut a small hole in the dust shield

Thanks for the info.
Not sure what you mean by cutting a small hole in the dust shield though ?
I have done a side by side comparrison of the new bulbs against the old ones and they are identical in size and length.
Didn't want to fit them incase it threw up an error.Good to know they wont.
Cheers.

Maybe I fitted different ones, mine had a ballast with them that you have to mount outside the housing.
Either way there should be no error.
