I bought some APC super white head light lamps and they look pertty damn good. They are 100/90 watt. The box says Xenon gas on it, I thought this was only for true HID lights? Anyone else got these? Will the 100/90 watt melt the wiring harness? Thnx:D

Yes they will eventually melt the harnesses, i have melted mine twice. However its not hard to fix when it happens, you can get new h4 harnesses from oreily's for 99 cents. The only way they wont melt is if you use the same wattage as the stock bulbs.

It took me about a year before i melted them for the first time. Replacing the harnesses is simple, cut the 3 stock wires from the old harness and splice them with the 3 new wires on the new harness. Red=positive black=negative yellow=high beams.

Does anyone know if higher quality bulbs such as PIAA will melt the harness?

APC (DOH!) sells an H4 Harness upgrade kit that is said not to melt. No experience with it personally, but they sell ita at autozone here in NC.
