I have an 02 base rsx. I bought some aftermarket bulbs off of ebay and they both burned out. They sent me 2 new ones and the driver one burned out again. So I bought a pair from a different guy. I spent about $25 this time as opposed to like $12 the first time. Once again the driver one burned out on me. I thought maybe it was shady so I bought some Silverstars at the autoparts store about 3 weeks ago. Well, the driver one burned out on me last night. What do you think the problem is?

ok vibration can cause these bulbs to fail so check to make sure your bulb is not loose.

another thing with these is a single finger print on the bulb will cause the glass to heat unevenly and crack the glass. wipe the new ones with a non residue cleaner then install with cloth/tissue...making sure not to touch the glass.
