Just installed Lux Angel eyes-worried

I just installed these puppies!

But i am worried about how some wires are touching the metal back part of the bulb. Nothing will melt in there?

is the black box going to melt anything as well?

Or should i try to zip tie everything away. its pretty tight in there.

I was a little worried about it when I did mine too...but it was fine. And I didn't tie up anything..just left all the wires hanging. I think the first Lux that came out had some problem with heating...but fixed that problem right away..

Thats great! I had to read some m3forum to reassure myself. Apparently the lux runs on 10 watts vs 35 watts oem so it should be even less hot

You should be fine. They fixed the overheating issue in the earlier units.
