MTEC AE's - Each side is a slightly different colour??

Afternoon.

I bought some MTEC AE's for my E90.. Went for these over the Lux ones as try didn't look quite so in your face bright.

Anyway, installed all ok.. The brightness of them are identical but the colours are slightly different. The left side being ever so slightly more yellowy. Nothing that the camera can pick up I'm afraid.

My next step is to swap them round to see if its the bulbs or something on my side.

Has anyone experienced this before with colours being slightly different?

It's a pre-LCI with xenons so no movement.

It's like the actual colour temperature is different! I'm going to swap sides tomorrow if the weather holds out and see if its the actual bulb or the headlight itself (which I can't see!)
