HID no worky

Hey guys,
I need to replace the passenger side HID setup on my car, but I can't figure out what brand/set up I have. Its a 35W 8k set up of some sort. My car is throwing the low beam code and I suspect its because I repaired a cut wire.

Funny, my pass side went out a while ago too.

Couple of things you should check if you haven't already.
1) Check all connections
2) Check fuses
3) Is the ballast bad or the bulb. You can swap sides to check this. Take ballast from driver side and plug into pass side and vice versa.

I determined my bulb was bad.
I bought a set of bulbs from Proprone. He's a sponsor here.
