Sure. But it doesn't seem to be happening in any systematic way to the E46 population out there. When somebody has a melted lens, there's some other factor involved. BMW isn't perfect, but I'm having trouble believing that their tail-light design is so marginal that it will melt lenses if you're on the brake for an hour, but 10 minutes is ok.

Mine is a 2006 with *factory* LEDs, so I don't care. So there!
