You are getting a little bit of bum steering. I have put in automotive kits, and you are absolutely correct. H7 is H7 is H7. No modification necessary.
If you are even slightly comfortable with wiring, installing one of the automotive kits for low beam is a piece of cake. I looked at the HIDonline kits, and see nothing there that makes the job all that much easier. In any event you have to get the wiring hooked to power, and wires into the headlight housing.
For the H3 high beams on the pre '05 bikes, that is possibly another matter. BMW uses a rather strange holder for the H3 bulb, and it MAY be a little more difficult to fit a H3 HID bulb.
H9/H11 bulbs for the '05 High beam should be a plug and play fit also.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
