Maybe they built a cap into their harness. If the lights you are hooking up don't draw more current than the stock ones, all you really need is a capacitor to keep it from flickering.

This appears to be a headlight replacement, are you using the stock housing? HID kits without projector lenses are a problem - you'll blind drivers.

I notice you are in Kalifornia. The California DMV Motor Vehicle Code does not address HID (that I am aware of). I read some police are issuing tickets but no one says on what basis. Perhaps it is section 24407 "On a straight level road under any condition of loading none of the high intensity portion of the beam shall be directed to strike the eyes of an approaching driver."

Not sure how low the stock housing can point a HID light since HID has a lot of spill hopefully you can point them low enough.

I use HID as driving lamps (CMVC 24402(a)) and off highway auxiliary lamps (CMVC 24411).

I also read that some cops are giving tickets if the color temperature isn't ~4500 - since blue is not allowed. 6000K is a shade of white to me - but any higher and it is blue.

In Kalifornia, we eventually outlaw anything with mercury - there are already environmental laws regarding HID disposal, a set of HID has about ~1mg of mercury (halide). Mercury-free versions are being developed but last time I checked they had an issue of more glare.
