Hid relay chatter

Hey all from snowy Nova Scotia , 2013 4dr wrangler , just installed opt7 hid headlights , got a couple issues , 1- with the jeep running , high beams on , the relay chatters , and 2- low beams have the blueish color , but high beams look like regular halogens , is this right or is something wonky going on?

What I suspect:

A.) The Opt7 relay harness is not compatible with PWM, most of the Canbus compliant relay harnesses have some type of capacitor to stabilize the coil field as the headlight output pulses, which is probably what is causing the chatter.
B.) There is no such thing as a "bi-xenon" drop in. What a lot of the drop in manufacturers will create is either a motorized capsule that actually changes position to change the light focus, or they have a dual capsule (one Xenon for low beam, one Halogen for high beam) which is what I suspect you have. See attached.
