I tried everything to listen to certain stations at night.. My HID's only affected one station so I just lived without it..

I agree with NYC F-350, check all your connections. I took sandpaper and dielectric grease to all the grounds and it helped quite a bit at start-up.

Try re-grounding the radio. In my old f150 I installed a new radio and would have a whine that was in direct correlation with my rpms. I cut the black wire on my radio and ran a ground to my seat bracket and fixed my issue

Also can add RF choke to the power lead for the HIDs. These are little clip-on things that go around the outside of the wire, no splice required. There are more sophisticated ones which are basically an iron doughnut in two pieces that you wrap the wire around, then snap on the other piece. These will usually kill the RF coming through the electrical system. If its radiating RF, then you need some braided loom shielding.

Any of these items can be had very cheaply at most any ham radio or amateur electronics supply. Radio Shack used to carry such things, but they are no longer interested in the electronics hobbyist business.
