Help install HID on original Xenon

Hello! I have a problem with my 2001 320d(fl).
I has original xenon but the left low beam doesn not work anymore.
i bought a HID ballast to replace the original one but i do not know how to power it. This is the model I have on the car - picture 1. What I bought - picure 2.
Picure 3 I think should be where I connect the HID.
Thanks in advance and sorry If this was already discussed.

The cars harness plugs into the new ballast, then the part of the ballast with the red connector goes straight to the bulb

No it does not. The cars harness fits to the original ballast but this has the long beam attached to it and my aftermarket hid has just one output
