Actually when I turn my hids on, my radio fm stations gets really fuzzy...
I've read that is caused by Magnetic Ballasts...the Digital ones fix that problem

I've also heard the cheaper magnetic ballasts will cause radio interference, and the slightly more expensive Digital ballasts won't. I must have Digital ones cause my radio still works perfect with my HIDs on.

how about any toruble running HIDs with 2 amps ( killing battery)
If you're talking about stereo Amplifiers no they won't affect it, HIDs actually draw less Amperage from the vehicle then regular bulbs do even though they operate on a MUCH higher Voltage, that higher Voltage requirement is the reason for the ballast boxes. But that being said, anytime you increase the load on a vehicles electrical system you MUST upgrade the electrical system to match the load you're putting on it for it to work properly for as long as it should.
