I've been running an aftermarket HID kit (w/ no error message) in the stock SE headlights without any issues - 55W AC Ballasts and 55W 4300K H11 bulbs.
I also just recently added a similar set but 35W in my fog lights... no issues there either. If the ST3 Headlight Housing is physically the same, you'll just need to wire or retrofit the D1S bulbs into a ballast and you should be good to go. Assuming the auto-leveler doesn't cause additional issues.
LOL @ You.

1)Im no "service manager" or anything similar.
2)Installing an Aftermarket "error free" kit these days is as challenging as a DIY air filter job.
3)Doing an all OEM retrofit can be a whole different project, depending on the aplication.

You gotta love "Forum trolls"... they know it all!!! (...and yet they can only contribute by making my "this is a bunch of written crap" scrolls downs a lot harder lol)
