Default Colour difference problem

Ive got a 01 civic 4rd LX, i have recently installed HID kit. Its a 12k Bi-xenon kit. Supposedly i has to be blue but what i have noticed that one of the lights is blue and one is white. What can cause that problem? I tried swapping the ballasts and bulbs and no result. Can that be a problem in a relay harness?

Also my car was in an accident and both front headlights were replaced. For some reason they are different aftermarket brand and i see a slight difference in projection of the light. I have read that the difference in color can be cause from having different housing. Is that possible?

Same with my fogs, one is more bluish and one is bright white.

I paid 170$ for my hid's, got them from my local shop.

Ok... you threw a curve ball in there and I got lost once you started talking about an accident.

Let's break it down so we all can understand it. I am trying to figure out what the accident has anything to do with this. Were the HIDs installed before the accident?

When you swapped bulbs, did the white bulb and blue bulb change sides? Did the problem move with the bulb(s)?

Wow, 170 for HIDs. Crazyness. I paid $65 at and have had them for 2 years with no problems.

The reason i talked about the accident is cuz when it was fixed two new housings of the headlights where changed. And for some reason different aftermarket companies.

But doesn't matter now, i figured it out. The reason why one was white is because when i installed them a bit of dirt got on the bulb which after melted and damaged it. My shop swapped me the bulbs and now they work properly.

And yea i paid 170$ for 2 kits (H4 bi-xenon +harness and H11 kit for my fogs)
