Nope!  Only with euro-lights.  If you have the DOT lights, need not worry.
The euro-lights do produce more heat, which is fine....but somehow it can
escape through the glass.  Not sure on the reason, but I think that by
putting a layer plastic over the glass lense, you somehow detract from the
natural heat dispursion of the desighn.... a lot of heat builds up in the
lights and when surrounded by cold air in the winter....wala....It cracks!

I don't THINK high wattage bulbs in the DOT lights are a problem, but not
sure.  Again, use at your own risk.

Seen it happen many times.  Use at your own risk, milage may vary, etc....

Hmmm, not sure about this.  Could be I guess.  Anyone else???
