No I am not having problems with mine but I was hoping they would be brighter and whiter than the stock ones. I am afraid of heating issues with aftermarket bulbs.

Are you having problems with yours? If it appears as though you can't see very far ahead at night, then I suggest having them raised a little as most xenon lenses are aimed too low when they come out of the factory.
