Reason for Headlight problem found

Now what?

Those "cool looking" blue color bulbs caused the sockets to melt throught the ground and no light. Does anyone know the part number for those sockets, they obviously will have to be replaced and soldered in place as they are not "plug and play" types. A few other questions.........

1) Any thoughts on avoiding this problem again?

2) If the bulbs are OEM replacements why do they get that much hotter to melt the socket?

3) Which ones won't cause this to happen again?

4) Do they make special High Temp sockets to avoid this?

Any answers would be a huge help. Thanks to all you MB motorheads for the support and answering this stuff, the search I did gave an answer to look at the sockets for the same problem I had.
