    I did the conversion and used the plain bulbs for a month, then converted to HID's and I never had any problem. Are you running high wattage bulbs, that can heat the wires and melt them. Other than that make sure the connectors are crimped real tight. Never had that problem with mine.

    Im running the eurolights conversion with HID 6000K H4 bulbs and its simply awesome!! I was ,like you, running the xenon higher wattage bulbs 80Watt, and I had to replace the male plug in connector to a higher wattage connector from Autozone. It worked and I did not have any melting problem but, make the switch to HID/ no melting problems and the light output is simply fantastic!
