a quality HID kit will almost always outperform any aftermarket LED kit, especially if you are using LEDs in your stock projectors. the consensus within headlight junkies is that the only quality aftermarket LED kit is the diode dynamics SL1--but even then, a quality HID kit will outperform the SL1. you can go with either morimoto, osram or philips bulbs, and OEM, morimoto, or hylux ballasts

wow, i'm surprised about that--morimoto products are usually pretty good. i did hear that morimoto quality has gone down a few years, but they are still one of the top aftermarket brands though.

why don't you try to get it replaced through warranty? if i remember correctly, there is a 5 year warranty for the morimoto hid kits. if not, then i'd go with hylux ballasts.

also, did your evo come with factory HIDs? if not, are you using a relay harness for your HID kit?
