Xenon flashes then goes off :(

I got stock xenons... i almost never use them since i got the angel eyes . i drive with the fogs and angels on all the time. the other day i turn the headlights on and the left side xenon flashed a few times and then went off. I had same problem with the right side one but it started working. This time around it seems that it just wont stay on.

Any of you know wha tha fawk is this about ?

so your car came from the factory with xenons correct?

if so, sounds like it could be a ballast/ignitor problem. if you would just swap the ballast from the left to the right (working side) and see for changes. if it works, could be your ignitors. make sure you try the bulb first, it could be that as well.
