    Dude. I bought those and put them in this weekend. After 5 minutes it smelled like they were melting the housings. Are yours holding up ok? I love the bulbs but though I was going to cook the headlights from what I smelled.

    So far so good. I didn't notice any odd smell coming from the housings. These stage 1 bulbs are supposed to be stock wattage. They make a stage 2 and I would definitely expect problems with those. They even recommend upgrading the connectors to some that are designed to handle the hotter burn of the stage 2 bulbs. I'll keep an eye out for mine in the meanwhile.

    Just be aware that the stock bulbs are 19W and those Arctic White Stage 1s are 35W. So it's not stock wattage.

    You're right about the wattage. I must have overlooked that. Thanks.

    Let me know how it goes. If everything is fine I'd love to reinstall them. They look soooooo much better. The yellow stock ones are killing me but I don't want to pull the fuses. The old folks in Florida need all the visual queues possible to not hit another car.

    It's been a little over 2 months now and Arctic White bulbs are still looking great. No warning lights or anything. Can't complain.

    Nothing melting? I'd love to put them back in.
