Default HID Conversion Kits/Fire Hazard?

Hi,
Due to the heat given off by Xenon bulbs, app 1400F vs Halogen app 700, there is a concern
by me if my projector bowl would burn when upgrading from Halogen to HID. This is due to plastic
used in the construction of projector bowls for Trailhawks {per online websites}. Hids were not offered
on Trailhawks in 2015. Anybody know why?
Can anyone tell me what their experience has been with hid conversion kits, which ones are great and which ones
to stay away from? Any issues with headlight projectors?
Regards

I have a 55W DDM Tuning Canbus kit in my 2016 and haven't had a single issue with heat or otherwise.

DDM makes a great kit, I bought mine from ebay here

Depending on the type of bulbs you have, a slight modification needs to be done to the passenger side bulb, read my review here

This big thing with the DDM kit, 100% plug and play no PWM harness no BS it just worked when installed.
