That's often the case with "noname" stuff like this, HID kits or cheap phone chargers. Best to get rid of it, before you run into bigger problems.
Philips or Osram if you want quality.

Ferrite can only reduce interference coming through the cable, I have a feeling it's not gonna work in your case.
