I never had that problem and your getting the kit I have. I have changed out many bulbs but not because they broke or changed in color I just like to mix and match. But now I have 8k's top and bottom for spring and summer and I'm about to call them up again to get me some 6k's for this winter season (Oct.Nov.Dec.)

You're stupid to waste money on the Piaa's. Everyone will tell you that once they go HID, they're never goin' back to halogen. I went through 4 or 5 sets of different high power halogens and was never happy. Then I drove Trevor's truck with hid's top and bottom and I ordered my kit a half hour later. $175 (4 years ago). Now I have a dead 4 yr old ballast which I would think is a nice lifespan.... Gonna go slims this time around though.
$175 is that for the regular kit or the high/low kit?

link to the kit you got?
