Default HID'* on 05 bonnie gxp

I just installed HID'* on my bonnie was surprised to find out that the headlights are wired differently from one side to the other. Both ballasts worked on the driver side but you have to switch the connectors around on the passenger side........didn't know if anybody knew this, or if this would be helpful

I had to find that out too so you're not alone.
My dad and I were pretty confused when we noticed they were switched around.
But I hope you like them.
I have them too and they look pretty sweet.
Just drive with your hand poised on the high beam switch for oncoming flashers

I don't have any pics yet since I just did it and was at work, boss helped me install them. I like them I also have the 10000k I like the blue look. It snowed a little last night and it really lights the snow up on the road a nice cool blue

I got them off ebay the box doesn't say anything but the ballasts say tenon on them, the kit was cheap too only $80 and it works great once you figure out the lights are wired differetnly from driver to passenger it is an easy swap.......I put the ballasts right behind the light housing using the bolt that is back there

I have not been able to figure out how to get pics up here? If you help I just snapped a pic with my phone of the ballast behind the light you can see the bolt that holds it and on the bottom I put a small bolt to just hold it still
