I know I have the "digital" ones in my car, I had to wire in relays on each side to supply power from the fuse box. Haven't had any issues since I installed them, well I take that back, I had a loose connection causing a flicker over bumps. I tightened it all up this season and it;s been fine

I don't know about analog vs. digital. from what I've read the halogens are turned on and off really fast during normal operation, but with halogens, you can't tell. When you go with HID lighting, you can see the flicker, so a capacitor kind of evens out the on/off of the system. I used a relay harness too, but that didn't have anything to do with the flickering. I don't know if this is accurate, but it's what I understood from the research I did. Without the capacitor my lights flickered, and the relay clicked really loud. After I wired in the capacitor it worked fine. Have your lights ever worked properly?

Mike, do you have your security set to flash the head lights when you lock your doors. It's the biggest no no there is with HID lights. They only have so many starts in their life time.

When I first got my car it already had a kit installed by someone else. Turns out they weren't HID bulbs at all. I had flickering and head light out and on issues. I bought new quality ballasts w/ capacitors. A good kit will convert the normal 55w that your oem wiring from the canbus puts out to 35w to run your HID lights. You can't cheap out on HID's at all.
