When I turn my headlights on they both are the same color, but after a few seconds the passenger side turn yellow while the driver side stay white/blue. I have oem zenons btw. Any help is appreciated, thanks. (Sorry my pic is upside down lol)

you're not getting intermittent light just different degrees of color temperature. The bulbs are rated for eight years of use roughly if I remember correctly. If you end up needing lights this website is where I bought mine. I shopped for a long long time and nobody could beat their prices. Not eBay bulbs, high-quality replacements. https://www.theretrofitsource.com

when I was driving yesterday my friend told me the right headlight went out.. I turned of the headlights and back on, and the right side came back on. Could it be the ballast that is bad on the passenger side? Or possibly the ignighter? I'm ordering new bulbs this week.
