Reverse Hid Question

i got my reverse hid kit today and installed them and when they light up one lights up a bright white/blue but the other is a hazy yellowish white? what could be wrong?

Thanks.

Poor workmanship, bad quality bulb. It should be a bright white with blueish tint.

Is the color temperature marked on the bulb? You might have received 2 different bulbs. Maybe you got a 4300K and a 6000K.

Maybe switch bulbs from ballast to make sure it's the bulb.
