Ouch I hope not, I just got them a couple months ago on my sedan. So far so good. A friend of mine has had them in his truck lights for a long time, never heard any bad news from him so far. I did notice that they run hot as hell, maybe your friends somehow got some dirt / finger oil on them. :?:jfrolang said:Everybody I know that's had silverstar headlight bulbs (that's 3 people) had to replace them within 6 months. They just don't seem to last.
I've had the same issue. I got the bulbs as a pair (as opposed to two individual bulbs) and noticed that one's filter color seemed to be just a hair different than the other. I chalked it up to manufacture variations and installed them (being meticulously careful not to touch the glass to anything, blah blah blah). Once they were in, I noticed the color was a little different as well. One bulb looked sorta blue while the other looked slightly red in comparison... Not yellow, red. Anyway, the plain blue bulb died after 6 or 7 months while the other has been going strong (this was about 3 months ago).Ragnaarok said:maybe your friends somehow got some dirt / finger oil on them. :?:
