turn signals washed out from hid's lol. suggestions?

just pulled my 8k's 35watts raptor hid's and installed some new 12k 55watts ddm ones

problem is my signals are pretty much washed out from the light output haha

anyone know of some SUPER bright signal bulbs?

if not i think i'll end up modding the headlight housing to black so it doesn't glare as bad but thats alittle too much work for me considering school and work haha

Yeah he said he was working on something new and could set me up with some like he has now.
It's beyond me to do it myself lol. Not wiring smart haha

seems like that's what's gonna have to happen though.

Obviously they won't be as bright as a custom set-up like JP7 is currently working on. For the money I spent on them I am very happy though.
