yeah i have these bulbs for the looks factor. aging ballasts or amperage problem? i notice if i let the car start and run for more than a few seconds, like let it run 15 to 20 seconds, i do not have this problem. i'm usually having the problem if i immidiately start the car and turn the lights on. but yes, these would be the original ballasts with cheap-o bulbs on them. anyways, seems my method is working ok. i'll look into getting some replacement ballasts and better bulbs though. i just wont go back to the 4300k bulbs, i liked the 6000k and 8000k that i've had in it. the 12000k bulbs i have are just rediculous. seriously when other than maybe a race event would i use these. they are just for kicks i guess. i see a few people driving around sometimes with them, they are quite horrid and emmit little useable lighting.
