2011 Charger OEM HID swap.

Ok so here's my dilemma. My 11' Charger came with the stock halogen housing and I've purchased a pair of the OEM HID projector based headlights. The connections are all the same for hookup but I'm wondering if the car will throw a bulb out warning considering the low draw of current over the canbus? OR do the newer Charger's even run the canbus units? OR do all the cars wiring harnesses come ready to support HIDs regardless of if they install them or not on the production line? Oh questions, questions, questions!

Ya true. Problem is the harness isn't long enough to stretch up to the light with the hood opened and I def don't want to remove the bumper again if the light needs more to work. But ya, that's what'll have to happen I suppose, just being lazy!
