James, I have the Griots jobs installed on my 200, they are great. At 40mils (the 
whole damn millimetre!) they look pretty sturdy. No overheating problems either, 
and I am running 80w lows and 2x100w highs in each headlight.

Also a tip: if your 4000 eyes are as narrow, as those of my 200, you can get away 
with buying just one and cutting it in half along it's longer side. Worked 
perfect for me!
