Halo's dim when xenon low beams on?

So I just installed the GP Thunder 7500k H8 (halo) and h3 (adaptive light) bulbs.

They look great when the daytime running lights are the only lights on.

However, when I switch the low beams to Auto, they dim, bringing down the temperature, making it a little yellow.

Is there a way to code the h8 and h3 bulbs to hold their wattages when the low beams are on, to keep their temp color??
