yeah it's a cheap ballast. I just got my car back and I took it apart, put my stock lights back in and am now looking at everything. The ballast it's self doesn't have a "brand name" it just says ballast and is a 35w.
I've also come to the understanding that unlike my stock bulb the HID kit and housing isn't using a motored bulb to switch from low to high. Is the plate in my projector what moves between the two?
I apologize again for all the questions I'm new to the electronic and light world of cars... it's costing me a bit of cash having to take it to other people all the time.
