Just noticed after getting in the car last night I have the ns dipped bulb out. :?

I replaced the standard bulb with H7 Osram Night Breakers mid November when I took delivery of the car and seems a very short period for this to fail.

anyone else had any experience like this, what should be the life span of the bulbs?

Also is there anything whiter / better than the night breakers available. I have LED sidelights at the moment that work no problem in MY10 but am going to change these as a bit to blue.

Thanks

I have osram nb's in my car. Been in since September and they were in my golf for a long while before. Still both work. Maybe you just got unlucky?

Often it's the more light, the shorter the life. Philips has Long Life bulbs. My Honda's were factory equipped with Long Life bulbs and I never had to replace one. (two Honda's in 5 years, > 100.000 miles combined)
