    Hi there all, just a quick question. Yesterday went out for a bit in the evening when I got back to the car started it both bulbs had blown. I've only had these new bulbs in for about 4-5 months. Is this normal?

    Thanks

    It depends on the quality of the bulbs. Some last longer and some last shorter, but both bulbs have blown together? That's a weird thing to happen lol.

    Doesn't one go and overload the other side. Its just that when you see the cars driving round on 1 headlight the one that's working always seems brighter. Sure it's not a fuse if they've both gone?
    I put Halfords bulbs in my last car and they both went inside 3 months.
