Radio is staticky with HID lowbeam

Can anyone figure this out? I installed a HID kit. For some reason when the lights are turned on the radio gets static,I can switch to the High Beams and it goes away.The only time it gets staic is with the Low beams (HID Projectors).

Regular am/fm radio should have no issues what so ever. I've not experienced it and neither has anyone else that I know. NOW...CB Radios are a different story. The antenna picks up interference from the ballasts like crazy....even with great filtering, it will NEVER go away.
