Gen 5 Camaro External Bolt-On Tech - HID Fog lights Melting my housing and silicone

Hi everyone i have an 11 Lt, recently had HIDs installed in my fogs, the HiDS have begun to melt the stock housing and silicone that was keeping bulbs in place, does anyone know of a glass or other type of housing that will be able to survive the HID heat?

The best thing to do is go with an LED bulb. It seems like there isn't enough room to keep the housing cool with an HID. I have LED's and haven't had a problem.

The melting is actually more common than you may think. The extra heat generated by the HID's is pretty substantial. LED's have made leaps and bounds in the last few years. Making them more attractive to really anything that needs to produce light.
