Thanks for the tip. A question - what do they mean by "homologation of the headlamp"?

As to heat, they may be right, but my guess is that there's plenty of margin in the wiring specs. Is there some other component that will fail? I can't imagine that the reflector or housing will have a problem?

Finally, I'd also guess that if there's a heat buildup problem, the bulbs will fail first. Anyway, I'll keep an eye on it and leave a post here if anything happens.
