I am getting a bit frustrated. The last H7 bulbs I had in melted the drivers side spade connector & holder (high temp?) so I changed to a recommended Phillips Xenon bulbs (55w)
Now the bloody passenger side one stopped working on the way to wales a couple of days ago and low and behold it had melted the connector on that side.
What is going on? What is the standard bulb that you should have in there? Is it just a H7 55w (Non Xenon)
I am worried in case this keeps happening. I have hard wired the bulb back in for now til I get home but if I leave those bulbs in no doubt that they will melt again.

It was Wilco motor spares. Not sure about the 35w thing.
Hmm...have to admit don't know much about Xenons but I think I read somewhere that a 55W halogen is equivalent to 35W xenon cause they use less energy. Just switch back to good ole Halogens! This is why I don't like upgrading anything on my car if it's not designed for it.
