Unhappy HID's dying one by one | thoughts...

My driver side HID just died about a month ago. Before it did, the light flickered every so often for a few weeks. Followed by the light turning a different color (almost like a halogen color temp, vs the 6000K). On 12/31, it died the moment I came home from Ohio.

Over the last few weeks, I've been witnessing the PASSENGER side do the same thing! And last night, it didn't come on either! I turned off the headlights, and then back on...and the passenger ignited and came on. But its doing the same thing the drivers side did, so I know I only have about a week before it won't turn on either.

Are my ballasts or igniters going bad? Could I have bad bulbs? The only thing I changed, regarding lighting, was going back to my stock taillights from the LED tails I had for 1.5 years prior. But I did that back in November.

Before I have anyone look at it, I just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this. Thanks in advance!
