But why would it start doing it after a month of working fine? Did yours flicker too? And was your a plug n play?

yea, mine began to flicker after 3 months, it started on the driver side and then the passenger side. The flickering burnt out the bulbs. They were plug n play, their were a generic no name brand.
Now I have a set of Bimmian XenoFlo HID plug n play kit with the resistor/capacitor mod and so far so good (got my fingers crossed). It been I think two months.

Do you know if your kit is analog or digital ballast?

hmmmm, i never heard of digital ballast doing that, but don't use your fogs until you do the resistor/capacitor mod. EuropeanAutoSource sells it, thats where I bought mine.

Or, doesn't DDM have their lifetime warranty on all their HID kits?
