H4/H1 euro lights and 90/100W bulbs

I just upgraded my 4000 (with the Cibie Euro H4/H1 lights) to 90/100W H4
bulbs.  This is wired up with a Blaufergnugen Euro light relay harness.
I am quite happy with the results but am a little concerned that the
90/100 bulbs are going to be too hot for the Euro light housing or lens.
Any expert opinions or BTDT on this topic?  Should I go back to lower
wattage bulbs to prevent anything from melting?  I had 55/60W H4s in
there before but I want more.  I was just noticing that the radiator
support panel just about each headlight to be quite warm to the touch after
running the lights for a while...
