Cool Camry 2007 -HID lights throttled down ?

Hi, I am new member: Wanted to find out why my HID lights when switched on throws a very bright beam, initially, on the road; immediately, the beams seems to be throttled down by at least 30% intensity . Anyone have this problem ? I suspect Toyota purposely do this in their software/circuit to come within specs for HID light intensity for my country. Specifically, I wish to know whether anyone knows how to "re-tweak" or "set back to original" settings of the full power of the HID lights. Thanks

make sure you check your ballast isn't getting grounded..and is your ballast in a secure place? bending of the wires too much can cause that too

most HID's do that. it helps to keep them from overheating. when it turns on, it goes to full power and then dims til it is bright enough for the computer to say its safe. its completely crap, but i havent found anything on how to change it. my factory headlights did it as well.
