yes if you touch the glass of the bulb they can explode when turned on, This is cause by the oils on your skin. To keep this from happening all you need to do is clean off the glass with some rubbing alchol.

If you ever plan on putting a HID system into your car and do buy aftermarket halo projectors, you may want to make sure that they will work with the HID system so they dont melt cause of the heat produced also.

Yup! That why i never did the upgrade! The company that sold them to me also told me the same thing... not to gripe to them if i melt them with HID or higher wattage bulbs.

I doubt they come with the bulbs, and i can tell you that if you ever decide to put a HID system in those they will melt within seconds.

The bulbs won't "explode" the oils on your fingers cause the bulb to burn hotter and will eventually burn the filliment out faster than if you didn't touch the bulb, so it won't ruin your bulbs just make them not last as long... at least tha thats my understanding
