One HID bulb bad?
 
Look at this for yourself. The drivers' side is great. The passenger side is lean... I got these from Umnitza with my Headlights. I don't want to have to send them back and wait a week with no headlights for new bulbs. These are 6000ks. Attachment 488155

They gave you cheap bulbs. Send them some pics as evidence and see if they'll give you new ones. Other than that, you'll have to buy new ones.

They sent me cheap ballasts to, which I'm dealing with them right now about. They arent wanting to get me a deal on actual canbus ballasts. If anything I want another pair of the super slim since I do have a warranty and I used them not even a week yet..

+1 get real bulbs. Forget the blue hue too. Life is short, get the brightest 4300 lumen bulbs. Quality bulbs can be had for $100/pr.

4300 is the spectrum color not the lumens

Thanks, that's fair. To clarify 4300 is the brightest output in the spectrum.

May look into it, these are both 6ks.

The 6ks will match my angel eyes too.
