HID Help

Ok I bought an HID kit from buyhid.com and they got here today, I just finished installing them and the driver's side is alot dimmer than the passenger.
Is there a fix for this, did I **** something up, a defect maybe? Anyone know whats wrong?

OK I sent mike an email but I had to swap my old headlights in for the time being but I did some more diagnostic testing today and this is what I came up with;
The passenger side headlight wires read 12.69~12.75 volts
The drivers side reads 11.44~11.56 volts.

I know both are supposed to be 12 but I cant figure out why theres a voltage drop on one and not the other, if they were equal i'd say they were taxing the system too much but its just the one, anyone have any ideas?
