    I am looking forward to install HID and projectors for low beam in my linea.
    I am confused with this Canbus ballast thing,can i simply use a normal HID kit?,if not why?
    I dont want any error code in the MID,due to this mod.

    Planning for the same set projectors for my Linea as well. But need to consult some experts in the field in Chennai (a bit scared for DIY). Hoping to complete it by next moth.

    @Akshay4384 AFAIK Low beam and high beam are not on Canbus in Linea as when my low beam bulb fused MID did not show any error.

    Agree with Vijay here. This is what the manual says:

    I have something to do with the Headlamp tomorrow anyway. So, I will disconnect a High / Low beam and check if any MID errors show up.

    Only the parking lights are monitored by Canbus. A low-tech solution would be to wire the existing filament parking bulbs in parallel with the LED/CCFL parking lights so that the current draw/resistance does not fall below what is needed by the Canbus to stay quiet :)

    Just verified. With the headlamp H7 low beam bulb removed, no errors. With the parking light bulb removed, error shown on MID.

    Yeah,it gives out an error when parking bulb is removed.
    Recently i saw Jotinders Linea with Projector set up.
    Parking bulb was removed for installtion of projectors in low beam,and there was the parking light error in MID.
    How can we overcome this?

    Its only the parking bulbs. If you directly connect the angel eyes on them they throw an error in MID. However you get canbus ballasts which avoid any sorts of errors
