Halos don't match

I have an interesting observation. My halos do not glow the same color. The one on the left is more white while the other one has that blue xenon glow to it. Anyone else have this same issue? No pics right now but can post later.

Interesting..... I wish I had one to tell you but does it seem like they are different types of bulbs or just that one is not as bright?

it really kind of looks like the the bulbs are emitting two different kinds of light. I am going to go out there now and take a pic so you guys will not think I'm crazy.

halos

ok, these pics are trying to make a liar out of me but there is much more of a difference when looking at them in person. You might be able to see a little how the one on the right is more blue than the one on the left. I have tried looking from several angles to make sure this was not the problem and they look different no matter where I stand. This is certainly not something to go nuts over but I was just wandering if anyone else has noticed a difference too. I have already had two people point this out so I know I'm not just seeing things.

No I see what you mean. The one on the right (when facing the car) is definitely more blue.

Foster you need to find another Camaro with halos and see which side is the right side.... then have them replace it under warranty. I would assume the brighter drivers side halo is the right one.
