one is by the power steering fluid and the other is down the side of the wheel arch tied up so not near much electrical circuits at all. I'm going to try the radio antenna first check its earth but still any more ideas??

Mine are taped under the lights, i would contact the place you bought the ballasts from as high quality ones should not be causing interference

contacted hids direct and will see what they say, if not i have an idea of wrapping the ballasts and wiring in a faraday cage arrangement wire copper and aluminium wound tape to keep in any interference whilst earthing the cage to the chassis by tapping the ballasts around a metal frame somewhere failing that i tape them under the headlights out of site, how much space is the under the lights to fit the ballasts and where exactly? and then ill ground the cage still using an earth cable if not back to diamond vision :/ which is not what i want lol

These are the ones I bought they are canbus even though not strictly required and also terminator which apparently help with any issues with sensitive cars. HIDS-Direct were really good with me giving me advice over which to buy.

Good luck Dan. I messaged them on eBay so they have to answer to keep their good ratings.
