Help required here.
I had P8 brand 55w 6000k hid kit installed in the low beam projectors since 2yrs. Of late the light output was diminishing to a yellowish dirty colour. My suspicion was confirmed by another very helpful TAIian that the bulbs are at the end of their life cycle. So I purchased a pair of generic bulbs of 4300k rating and installed them.
Now the output is even lower than the P8 bulbs. Such is the output that they are of no use at all. Even the OEM
halogens were better.
Do I need to change the ballasts too? Or do I need to get better quality bulbs? Or both?
The projectors were designed for halogens, is there any chance of the reflector bowl damage due to uv rays from the bulbs after 2yrs of use??
