Man I had eurolite bulbs in my low beams and fogs before I had my HID kit, and the POS lights kept blowing on me!!! Same with my gf in her Jetta. I cant stand them. When I did my H7 foglight conversion, I bought "Hyper Industries" H7 bulbs and they have been going strong for about a year. Fully recommend Hyper bulbs.

Yeah, that's what i hear all the time. Eurolites keep blowing on people. I think you either get a good batch or a bad batch. I was lucky enough to get some good ones. I guess ill see how long my second set will last me.

actually, what I think it is, is the housing, I had eurolites in my old headlights, and they blew all the time, but when I got my elipsoids, they didnt blow. Rob has elipsoids too and apparently his didnt blow for a long time either.. Maybe the smaller housing prevents them from blowing ? I dunno...

I've had the Eurolites for over a year, so far so good, knock on wood. I agree with Bliss though, you either get a good batch or a bad one. My bro went through 3 sets within 6 months. One even exploded inside the headlight housing.

Ask DaveM3, lol, I think his eurolites lasted longer.

i have superwhites in my car, i dont see much difference from the Hella H4s that i replaced them with. heres a pic of my friends car with hyperwhites in all his lights; fogs, turn, headlights. they are pretty good i guess. they still seem like alot for lights though.

I guess its the luck of the draw.

I've had the same lights as Gamite posted on my CR-V for almost a year and so far so good... Eurolights, I've had on the BMW and they worked fine for a few months last summer till I switched to PIAA Xtreme Whites. Still have the Eurolightes in a box somewhere.

I bought a set of Xenon bulbs 3 yrs ago , for my headlights and also the h1 for my fogs and there are still on the car , I agree with Bliss , you either have a good or a bad batch , It is also very cruicial with these bulbs not to touch them with your fingers , I suppose the oil on your finger tips are bad but you guys already know that .
