Hid headlight with high and low at same time

I have a 2011 670 volvo and low beams suck..I have tried different bulbs and no real difference but i just purchased some hids..Seeing i discovered it takes up to 30 seconds for full intensity,there is a time that i have almost no light at all till ballast warms up..Is it possible to have just low on and when i click hi to have both low and hi on at same time..Otherwise i spent $120 for nothin on top of the countless incandescent bulbs i bought to solve my issue...

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Best halogen bulbs are Phillips - Sylvania are more expensive and have a short life.

HIDs shouldn't take so long to warm up. You either need to upgrade your OEM wiring harness with thicker wires or buy better quality kit. I've had eBay kits and they don't last. The best ones, I've used so far, are from DDM tuning http://www.ddmtuning.com/Product-Categor....

Keep in mind that most OEM HIDs are made by Phillips (bulbs and ballasts) and the rest is a Chinese knock off.

Volvo has the option of secondary low/high beam lights in the bumper. If yours doesn't you can do the upgrade at a dealer.
