HIDs in Projectors

Went by a local shop today just to check to see how much their HIDs were before i bought online. When i talked to the guy he told me that if i put HIDs in my projector headlights that it would cause the housing to melt from the heat. He said that it needs the aluminum shielding that the stockers have to keep from melting. He then told me that if i put HIDs in there it would melt and no longer work at the latest of 6 months.

Is he full of shit or is this true? Anyone had problems like this?

lol he then said if i wanted them in my fogs he would charge $120 and i said that was ****ing rediculous and left

I'm not sure if he is a vendor on here but check out buyHIDs.com those guys are very cool people and very easy people to talk to. They have helped me out a lot with any questions I've had with HIDs and they are honest people.
