HID bulbs dim and output become slightly blue over time.
4 years with aftermarket stuff, i say it is pretty good.

Buy a unit that has lifetime warranty! I just replaced my bulbs free of charge.

I bought it from Julian at Nova HID 3 years ago. I had them replaced a week ago because the bulbs were starting to dim and twitch. Julian works out of synmoto in richmond now.

I didn't need to replace the ballast, but from what I remember the ballasts are included with the lifetime warranty.
