HID going pink

So my stock HID are going pink on one side, and after using it for 20 mins or so, it will go out. This is just the bulb dying on me and not my ballast right?

Funny thing is, after that side goes out, I turn the switch off, then back on again, that side will light up again. Weird.

So my buddy has a spare HID bulb lying around that fits my car and decided I can take it for free (yay!)

Changed it and its good as new! Ballast was fine. Bulb was BLACK inside that little gas chamber.

I do notice a lot of cars out there with HIDs that are going pink on one side, CHANGE YOUR BULB!!!!
