Default HID's Installed, What a difference!

Took my projectors out today and slapped in some plug and play high and low beams 6000k HIDs. Reason for doing so was because stock bulbs wasn't doing a good job sense this summer I will be driving 2100kms home and about 50% of that is going to be dirt road with little to no traffic and I need good lighting so I can feel safer and drive faster lol.
Anyways after doing this I realized that I should've done the fog lights as well just for appearance, either way looks great.
But just a question, do I hae to worry about these lamps getting to hot or anything where while using high beam im using the two bulbs the same time. Thanks

Perhaps if you post up the brand, kit, items #s etc, more about the install the info about the heat, voltage and temperature can be evaluated.

Typically Hid lights run cooler than traditional Halogen bulbs. The amperage is usually lower as well but it does depend on what brand/setup you go with. I would always recommend digital balasts.
