mmmmmmmm.........I dont think so;

I had this problem with mine,but only when it was brand new.

Had this with the TLS also.

Cured the problem when I added some reflective prisms in the headlights which made the H4 tighter.....not sure if it was really related or not,but I"m on the same bulbs since early 99 and they have A LOT of mileage on them...on bumpy roads most of the time too.

check the main connector to the headlight wiring. undo the plug and see if the conection is corroding. If its turning green in there you should clean it and that will probably cure your problem. I had the same thing happen with my 99.
