Projector Problem

I have recently installed projectors on my vehicle. I bought them at NOPI auto parts and They are made by CK and are Chrome/Clear not Ion Blue. I put in some PIAA Xtreme white bulbs in which the driver side is noticably blue in color and the passenger side is a bright white. It looks odd to see at night. I tried new bulbs and same effect. Also the passenger side seems to be dimmer. I have had them aligned and no help there either. Is there a different bulb I can try that would be blue like I want, ie Razo? Or how can I fix the problem?

Is there any other bulbs that I could try that would equal it out? Darker blue bulbs perhaps?

You might try Sylvania Cool Blue. I like them better than the extremes and they light up the road better. They look blue to look at them, but they light the road white. They are also available at many parts stores and are relatively inexpensive. I think their equivalent to H4 id 9003.

The housing in your projectors are messed up cause you touched the bulb or something and when you turned on your headlights it burned what ever was on tha headlights and fogged up the housing ..........same thing happened to me dude

my bulbs were doin sam thing, 1 would be blue and the other would be yellow and dim...come to find out i killed the fuse on that side so there wasnt enough power gettin to the bulb. did u put the "bad" bulb into the other side and see if it shines correctly? thats how i figured i killed somethin on that side cause the boths worked great on 1 side and not the other.
