Disable the daytime running lights, DRL's typically run at half power or so. The HID's are saying FU!

It's hit or miss I suppose. I've heard good things about Glassworks quality, but I had the hardest time getting a set of Tim's rear bed caps. I ordered in Jan and after countless calls and going through Kartek (vendor) who used the manager to connect with Tim to get my stupid bedcaps. So, my experience sucked. Perry is a good guy and I'm sure his fiber is nice not to mention he lives locally so that makes it easier...

Remove the HIDs until you get this resolved.
Your ballasts and burners won't last an hour before they smoke.
