Question 08 TL Passenger side HID issues

I replaced both HID Ballast and igniters and bulbs with aftermarket replacements and the passenger side went out and I received a new one and replaced it and now 2 weeks after replacing it the damn thing is now flashing quickly 4 or 5 times and goes out either high or low beam..
Can someone help with this? I checked and no wires a loose anywhere or grounds... The drivers side is the exact same unit from the same manufacture and its working just fine.... I purchased them from Amazon and they gave me my money back for the defective unit but I need to replace it with something better... Any ideas?

Thanks....

Any reasons why you replaced the OEM HID unit with aftermarket ones? Everyone on this forum will agree that your OEM HID units are far superior to the ones you replaced with from Amazon.
