Aren't aftermarket HID's usually 5amps, and advertised as using only half of the amps compared to the normal bulb amperage? Then did anyone have problems with HID systems on a GC8?
what you need to know is if the 5 amps is peak or sustained draw, facotry headlights with peak draw 10 amps initally and as the bulb heats the resistance increases incredibly and therefore the amperage decreases.
