May I suggest a slimline 55W HID ballast upgrade from DDM Tuning. They are an offshoot company of Apexcone and work a lot with the BMW and motorcycle guys on lighting upgrades.
A quick google search should help you find their website and product. Again, I would go for the slimline ballast, as even with the extra wiring, I was able to squeeze it all in place of the stock ballast. Even with new bulbs, the ballasts are about $100 shipped, which beats your $200 price point.
One small caveat: they are on backorder due to Christmas, so it will be several weeks before they get your order out. Mine took 2 weeks, and I had ordered it a couple of weeks before Christmas.
