If you're still having problems, I would return it and get the Morimoto from TheRetroFitSource.

Never had any issues with them and CS seems on point. Quality product. Spend the extra and its way better IMO and 5500k HID is awesome. Been getting a lot of compliments on it on the FRS with stock housing and projector.

But I plan on getting the actual retroquik projector later on to get the most of the HID.

Update: So I received and installed my D4S Philips 42402 WX Ultinon bulb about 2.5 weeks ago from The Retrofit Source (link below):

https://www.theretrofitsource.com/co...7#.VvvtjnosA41

The quality of these bulbs looked great, the color is pure white, and they match my LED fog lights and boomerangs perfectly. So far I have not experienced any issues with the bulbs turning off. I will post another update only if I start to experience any issues with these bulbs. But, for now I am satisfied

Sorry to bump an old thread but I'm having the same exact problem with my Diode Dynamic 5k HID bulbs on my BRZ. My drivers side occasionally goes out. I first noticed it happening about 4 months after purchasing them, in late 2017. I have replaced ALL lights inside and out in the car with their products, including the brightest 5k fog lights they offer, which is why I probably didn't notice the headlight being out..


My drivers headlight can turn on, but will go off after about 10 minutes or so. Might switch to stock or look into another brand.




The kicker is, I put MAYBE 3-4k miles on my car a year, it's strictly a track/weekend/nice weather car. There are times where I may not drive it for a month, save for a few quick trips to keep it from sitting for too long.


I also have their license plate LEDs, but they failed about a year ago and I put stock back in.


I know DD has great customer service, and I could get these all replaced, but I am incredibly busy with work and haven't had the time to start that process. I still love their products and will be upgrading all the lights in my 4Runner soon with DD stuff.


Just wanted to throw in my two cents on the issue!

I'm having a similar issue, my drivers side light doesnt turn on sometimes, flipping the switch a couple times gets it to ignite, I switched the bulbs and it stayed on the driver side. It only started doing this after I installed the DD 6k bulbs.

I have been using DAMA D4S bulbs since one year without any problems. They are ~5000K and provide better visibility than the 4300K stock HIDs I had.

I ended up ordering the expensive Osram CBI bulbs because no other bulbs would stay working for long. Even had one that exploded inside my headlight!! I've had the Osrams in for 3 years with no issues.

The stock BRZ D4S bulbs are Osrams. I have a set of Nightbreaker Unlimited in mine right now and I have DD's HID fog light kit(Chinese components through and through).
