    hi
    one of my angel eyes takes a while longer to get as bright as the other one they do both come on together but the one on the driverside takes a while to get as bright as the other one which gets bright straightway if that makes any sense what do you think the problem could be

    How old are they?eventually the gas goes on them could be why its taking longer to get as bright.Have you tried swapping across the invertor and seeing if that makes a difference?

    its like when you switch on a flourescent light in your house and it comes on but takes a little while to get fully on i dont think the gas has gone cos it does get as bright as the other one just takes a little longer thats all. was thinking the invertor is on its way out
