swapped capsules both ways. looks like the right one may have a problem (still dim with the 6000K bulb back in, though when I started this wasn't the case). is it possible the 5000k could have done something to the ballast?
Also, what would cause these bulbs to have such a distinct cutoff if the 6000k's seemed to flood so much light?
The bulbs are both H10, 35w each with only a different temp. The originals were from bajaHID if I remember correctly and the new ones from xenon depot (the difference is XD comes with an adapter to extend the cord to/from the ballast position and the BajaHID don't.
Also, the ballast I have are 35w ballasts.
This pic shows the cutoff with the lows on (halogen)
and here with just the fogs, notice the band at the top, it looks like they aren't fully igniting or something?
here I put the 6000k back in and noticed the passenger side was still flickering, a problem i didn't have before I put xenondepot's HID in that side:
and lastly, here's a pic, with no correction or altering showing the passenger side is more blue even though both have 5000k XD HID bulbs installed.
