SOOOOOO many funny jokes running through my head right now! If you got the correct size bulbs it will be fine.

Have you ever driven down the road and been blinded by the guy coming the other way and said, "f that dick with the stupid bright, blueish lights"? That A hole just put HID's in the stock housing without getting projectors. Be kind and retro fit the projectors in!!

I guess the temp of the bulb could do that if it were close enough and on long enough. I've never had a problem nor have I heard of any problems like that from this site.

I actually enjoy the look of Hid's in stock housing. Not starting a debate but if aimed properly (lot lower than reccomended) they can still be bright but not blinding.
