    had hids in the car for a few months and no real problems but today changed over to 5000k bulbs (as one blew) and they flicker all the time when the car is running but fine when the car is off any ideas ?

    Could be faulty ballasts or the new bulbs are maybe dodgy, i got a set of canbus pro 43k, which have the best qaulity i seen the ballasts are really high standard the bulbs have ceramic base also metal baseplate for headlights. Maybe be best upgrading the lot, i have attatched a link to the exact set i got and is by far the best kit i have ever baught. Really recommend them.

    I bought a set a month or so back, and went for the cheaper option without cancellors or anything as I have the ability to enable Xenons in the car's settings. Until I did that though, they did exactly what you are describing i.e. Were perfect with the engine not running, but as soon as I started it up the flickering would have given you a seizure! No idea why changing the bulbs would make them exhibit this same issue though.
