Anyone (preferably with an infrared thermometer) know how hot the bullet headlight gets? I want to add some accent lighting (around the edges of where the chrome metal housing meets the glass lens housing ) but am concerned about heat affecting the LEDs.

I can measure the temp for you later on today, but I have HIDs in my headlight, which run cooler than the OEM halogens, making my measurement useless to you - unless you have HIDs as well. :D

The digital termo only reads the outside temperature of the headlight glass, which is a lot lower than what happens on the inside. So, I've measured the OEM 55 watt halogen bulb directly, and it went as high as 340°F. My 35 watt HID bubls only climbed as high as 250°F.

Hope this helps in your endeavor.
