anyone has blue or purple tint HID's? I bought a generic brand that said 8000K so i assumed that it will at least be blue if not purple. when i turn on the HID's, it starts off purple, then blue then white then a yellowish white. does that mean i have inferior HID's? one is a off shore brand, but the other is a 5600K x1010 xenarcs, that are supposed to be blue. it starts off blue, then goes to white then a offwhite similar to the of shore ones. if the HIDs need to be warmed up, shouldnt the colors go from yellow, white, blue then purple and stay purple? did i install it wrong? i dont see how cause its pretty straight forward. thanks. :nodno

Low quality bulb is what it sounds like to me. Mine are made by PIAA and definetly have a purple blue look to them when looking from the outside. From the drivers seat there the crispest white ive ever seen in a headlamp
