When I had just the bulbs plugged in to my oe harness they would work when the vehicle was off but as soon as you started it they would flicker and go off. I then had xenon depot send me a capacitor setup. Hooked that up and the lights would work when the vehicle was on but would turn off ever once and and awhile for a few seconds then come back on. They then sent me a capacitor setup with relay harness. Now the lights stay on all the time but the passenger side is slightly flickering you can't notice it while driving but when your behind another vehicle or looking at it it's noticeable. Tried different grounds no change so still in the process of figuring it out. Was wondering if you had any input and also would you recommend hids or these for low beams. Which did you think was brighter while driving I've never had hids so I can't compare. I was thinking about ordering hids for the low beams and just putting the leds in the fogs

Im still 50/50 on LED or HID, If I HAD to choose id say LED, just because of the simplicity of install. On paper an LED is more stable, as well as will last longer.
I agre with you on wet pavement, the lights dont seem as bright weather its HID or LED. both seem way less bright on wet roads. As far as your flicker issue, it could be a bunch of things. If using the relay, and capicators, there should be stable power at the plug, so I would start with the bulb. It may not be the easiest solution, but switch the passenger side and the drivers side. bulb only, and see if the flicker stays on the same side, or if it moves. If it moves, then your bulb is the issue. If the flicker stays, then its a whole different issue. Simplest way would be to just power both low beams off the non flickering side. The flicker could be caused by high resistance to ground on the ground wire, low voltage on the 12v wire, low amperage on the 12v wire, loose plug. All not easy things to t-shoot, since you have to take the bumper off to access the headlight.
can also try turning off your DRL in your touch screen (day time running lights) I dont remember which option its under, but go to settings, and flip through themm uncheck the box.
WORST case senario, you could, with a relay, trigger your Low beams, from your pk lights, so when your pk lights come on, your headlights will as well. this woudl render your "headlight" position on the switch null, but if you wanted the headlights on you just turn it to pk lights.
