Not normal at all. Your headlights might be putting out too much juice or not enough. Also note, that your halogens should be running @ 55watts but will run 100 watt bulbs, sometimes this helps. Worth a shot if they are putting out too much power anyway.

I thought about trying 100 watt bulbs but was wondering if the housing would support it? I know with the higher wattage it will be significantly hotter and don't want my housinf to melt. Might not be so good. Anyone know if the house will support 100?
