mach brightness

just wired up machs last night to my mk1 sedan. one is a nice clear white xenon and the other is yellowish. cleaned the headlight lenses already before the install. they looked the same last night. how do I fix this? or what size are the bulbs? wiring issue maybe?


Put this on the svt page because machs come factory.

That's usually what happens. One light will go out and people don't always buy them in pairs. Usually when the happens they also get a different bulb that isn't quite the same color.

Best practice is to replace them in pairs. Even two of the same brand/bulb will look different if replaced separate from each other. I still keep the other bulb around to use as a back up though, never know when you will have one go out and not be able to order or get to the store to replace.
