4 days ago one of my low beams blew out. Highs still worked fine. Well last night my other low beam turned purple and blew out.

So... I guess that's their life span. I've had them a year, and used the car half a year. Kinda sucky as they are like $22 a piece.

Anyone else have input?

well I went through 3 sets in 2 years in a honda CRX. I figured it was because of the suspension that it was just to bumpy thats why they were blowing. I have had them in a Honda CRV (all stock) for two years now and no problems what so ever. Maybe its just cars with modded suspension that the silverstars cant handle.

I think you arw right. Vibration will kill light bulbs.
I have had a set in my Camry for about three years now and no problem. I just put a set in my Tercel about four months ago.

Miserable luck with the Silverstar generic-wannabe-HIDs (can't recall their name for the life of me), had two bulbs blow within a couple weeks on the stock suspension....the Xtravision bulbs, though, were still going strong a year+ after installation.

Seconded recommendation on the Nighthawks for price and brightness, no clue on longevity.
