I've always run VVME without issues. Only car that didn't take was my mother's 200. Something with the way that car was wired would make them conk out every couple days. Also HIDs hum/buzz - it's normal.

|82GT||I ordered them from Xenonhids.com but just now realized that's not the company I intended to order from...lol. I am requesting a full refund from them now and going to order from Hidkitlights.com, which is the company with the German parts and not the cheap Chinese junk I incorrectly ordered from.|

|Towelie||Where'd you buy the hid kit? My morimoto kit has been kicking ass since day one. Also both of my ballasts hum a little bit while the lights are warming up|

|82GT||I just swapped out the ballasts so now I'm sure it's a bad ballast. I called the company and they said they were sending out a new ballast today. This sucks because this ballast did not last a day! This is "supposed" to be a company with the kits made in Germany and not China. I read online that the German stuff is what you want for quality.|

I know there is delay in the light to fully turn on. Usually this delay is short, I would say less than a second, anything more than that is not a good sign. It's either faulty or a cheap brand. The humming is also not a good sign, I would request that they send you a new unit... not matter what they say. Also, before you call, make sure that all your wiring is connected properly and to the right connectors, (nice and tight). Make sure if any, the negative wires are grounded properly.
you can try and switch out the ballast, and see how they react. If you get the same issues as before, then you know for sure that you have a bad ballast.
Good luck and let us know what happens.

HID headlight Question
How do you know if you have a faulty ballast? I just received my new kit the other day and and when I tried them for the first time, the passenger side took a few extra seconds to turn on. Before it turned on, the ballast was just humming and got kind of warm to touch, before it finally came on. Now today, I went to show them to a buddy and the passenger side does not light at all and the ballast makes the same humming sound and gets warm but the headlight doesn't come on at all now. The other ballast has never made any noises or gets warm.
I ordered this kit from: Hidkitlights.com I'm going to call sales and tell them my problem. Hopefully they will send me a new one.
