    HIDS? Check the bulb is seated correctly in the reflector.

    I had the same on mine and the flange on the bulb was a tad wider than the recess on the reflector - 0.3mm to be exact but it was enough to stop the gas pocket in the bulb sitting in the focal point of the reflector - where it needs to be to get the best beam

    I just shaved the edge down with a shape knife enough to allow the bulb to sit correctly and all was well
