W123 Euro Headlight Grounding Problems

Hi all,
My 84 had some upgraded 7" lights before with slightly oversized bulbs (50/85?) but I decided to go for a newer look and installed my euro headlights. I did all the wiring inside the headlight so I can easily convert back to the US spec lights if desired. I used the same bulbs as the lights that came out, but now I'm having a problem with it grounding. This doesn't make any sense, when my low beams are on they are dim, turn the fog lights on and the fog lights go to candlepower. I would just ground the units but the polarity changes when the high beams kick on. I've used jumpers and a ohmeter to insure I don't have a cold solder anywhere but even with one headlight the ground isn't suffiecient just for the low beam where as before it worked perfectly. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Jeff M.
