Hello, I will appreciate any help you can give me with the problem I am having with my HID kit.
I have a 04 GTO and I purchased and installed a Xentec 35W HID kit for my low beams from ebay. I got the 5000K bulbs.
When I turn on the lights they are just not bright enough. The stock lights are brighter. I drove around with the kit and I couldn't see very much and were just quite unsafe to use.
So I returned for an exchange and got a different version of the ballasts this time. A slimmer black Xentec ballast. Well, the problem didn't get resolved.
I purchased another set of 5000K bulbs from a different vendor and same result.
Checked the battery and it measures 12.5V.
Removed the DRL relay and it didn't help.
I even tried a harness to plug the HID kit directly to the battery to try to rule out if there was something else going on electrically but it still didn't help.
Did anybody run into this problem? And if so how did you fix it?
I will appreciate some help with this problem. Thanks in advance.
Here is an image of the first pair and second pair of the ballast I got.
