Nope, no problems with the stock bulbs. I just replaced them with some that are supposedly brighter.
When you do get around to having to replace one though I highly recommend removing the grille first. Yeah, it seems like overkill, but it's just so much easier to get the headlight out. Personally, I'll never go after a headlight again without removing the grille first.
Hey, would you like brighter fog lights? I know this trick works. Replace the bulbs with H9's, they are 2200 lumens brighter than stock. You just need to shave off one tab on the inside of the H9 and it fits right in. I'm using them and they are turned on a lot, no problems from extra heat or anything else.
