Arrow Angel eyes are dim... help

So i just installed my p46 kit yesterday, which i love btw big shoutout to umnitza for the group buy, but the angel eyes seem to be pretty dim. It was like 10 degrees or lower here in the suburbs of Detroit today so is that why and i also read that since the kit was sitting for a couple weeks, the need to be active for a while to get brighter. Which one of these is it. Also i noticed that the inner eyes are dimmer than the outer and when i crank the car to start it from the acc position, the inner drivers side angel eyes goes reeeally dim. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

i have those same headlights
in the cold weather, the inner ones take forever to warm up and get bright
for some reason the cold doesnt affect the outer rings

a few weeks ago, when it was still 50 degree and above, all the rings came on within a minute or two of driving.

its all good
the prokit is a very conservative drop so the original ride comfort isn't sacrificed. (still on stock shocks and struts) at the same time, it looks and corners better.
roads here in philadelphia are bad too, so you just need to steer clear of potholes. the ride feels a lil stiffer when u get bigger wheels tho

yea i would've put in koni's if i had the extra cash back then
but now i'm too lazy to take it all apart again
instead, i think i'm gonna go for some swaybars (like from TMS) to reduce body roll
