How to get rid of this error message? Kinda annoying and weird...

Will appreciate your help.
The best way to get rid of this warning is take your car to the dealer and have them flash your car to ENABLE the xenon retrofit path.

Some 99-01 E46's can get past this by just pulling Fuse 32 as BMW Loe explained. However this is not a widely applicable solution.
