Re: HID gone dim??

Unless you replaced the bulb (which I guess you did not) I suppose you are pulling very slowly some air and your bulb is going to fail soon. Time to order a new bulb, they're cheap.

Just an uneducated guess.

DDM Tuning. I use their stuff quite a bit. About $15.00 for a pair of bulbs.
