My Ride: 2001 330ci Coupe
Doesn't seem to be sticking on unless it's totally random. I've never been able to catch it and my friends haven't ever noticed it anytime they were following me.

And not a two footed driver! Although I've seen some pretty amazing rally car driver's fancy footwork and wish I had it like that... I'm just not that talented lol

It could be true that the lenses are trapping heat I suppose... I guess I was assuming that a heat source could not produce heat greater than it's surface temp. I suppose the increased temp around the bulbs surface could raise the surface temp since the filament is the peak heat source.

Oh well, this time I'll go for different cheap lenses lol. Sorry guys. Can't go with the stock look! Love 330's but I gotta be just a little different than all you stock runnin' guys... even if it costs me a lil extra cuz it fails. 'Course I guess I could just tint some OE's...
