If you are asking in response to the MKV's above, I only wanted low beam modification and the light patterns in the two photos above are just with low beams.

That depends on the application and the owner's preference. On cars with dual lamps, you can have the HIDs do high beams, retain the stock halogen high beams, or do both together. On vehicles with only one lamp (Mk4 Jetta, for example), the HIDs will do both high and low beams.

I think anyone wanting a set of V lights, I would just place the ballasts inside the of the headlight, it is a clean and more simple install. idk about the high beams on the V lights either. I have only done the set above, but I remember the wiring for the highs being so tight, that there was no slack for me to get in there to mess around with them. there was zero possibility of me cutting/crimping/soldering wires inside of that assembly. That may have just been those lights though. I am doing another set of them either tonight or tomorrow so I will have a better idea on the high beam.

With respect to the light quantity with just a low beam HID and a stock halogen high beam, in my set up above, I have plenty of light when the high beam is activated.

Putting in an HID fog light set up in addition to the HID/halogen lenses may be a better use of your money than an HID high beam (if that is possible).

Hooked them up this morning. Was easier that I anticipated. Disabled the DRL's for right now but will hook them back up when the LED's come in.
Getting started:

Side by side:

One in:

Almost done:

Finished:
Will adjust them tonight after dark before I put the cover back on. Used the spacers Jeff sent me on the bottom mounts to give a little better adjustment since I have air shocks on the back.

It could be any of those. Where did you ground them to? Also try swaping the ballasts from side to side to see if the problem follows the ballast.
