It looks like one light has more output then the other on mine kinda odd....

Gonna try and re adjust my lamp tomorrow see if that helps.

Brighter then my head lights so Ill be buying some for my head lights


only complaint so far (besides light output is brighter on one if thats the case which I think its just my lamp) is one of the tabs was bent on one of the pieces I had that you had to connect to

Edit *fixed the last thing I talked about the bent piece it was easy*

hey dude, No one is getting their panties bunched up. he was just giving you advice on how to get them fixed/replaced. Nothing more.

wtf, ok everyone chime in please...... Yes I contacted him VIA PM as soon as the problem occured, I also left him a voicemail on the business card that was supplied. Thanks for the advice, but i believe i never asked anyone what I should do to get the issue fixed, i was just venting....is that a crime. This is over now. How bout we hear or see some of these HID's working..... I know mine looked badass for the brief time they were on!

Chris, I'm sorry one of your ballasts went out. Unfortunately, this does happen once in awhile and there is absolutely nothing I can do to avoid it. I already PM'd you and like I said in the PM, I will over night a brand new replacement ballet to you first thing tomorrow morning. If you need anything else let me know and I will return your phone call when I get back into an area with better reception. Sorry again for the inconvenience.

As far the bulbs looking different in brightness...give it a day or two as sometimes it takes awhile before all the new gases inside start burning. Weird, but they will change a little in the first few days. Also, if there is any difference in your housings such as one being dirty or not adjusted correctly like you said, that could also be causing the problem. Let me know if they don't get better.

Now, when ppl do not man up and honor their warranty, that's when u let the rest of us know. Otherwise that's just unfair.
Thanks Brock. I do stand by my products 100% and I will do whatever it takes to keep my customers happy.

Thanks again to everyone who purchased. I hope they work well for you and your happy with your new lights. If for some reason you have a problem, such as Chris did, please PM or call me and I will get it taken care of right away. Thanks

Yes this is normal for HID's to flicker when they are turned on, at least all the HID's I owned did....I dont know about 2 or 3 times, maybe just one "flick" and yes they have to warm up before they will be at full brightness.. I think the "flick" looks bad ass when you turn them on. Now if they are flickering while they are on, you might have a problem. Get them pics up!!!

As Chris said, yes it is normal for them to flicker a bit as they are warming up. This is just all the gases in there igniting. It should take them 3-5 seconds to fully warm up and stay stable.

Just to mention, My driver side looked a little dim compared to the passenger. I let them run for about 25 mins, now they are both the same.

aiming can contribute to brightness, if one is aimed up it will look slightly bright when you are looking directly at them.
