    Thread: Headlight Out @ 36k

    1. 04-30-2012 02:48 AM #1
      Hey guys, my left headlight went out at 36k miles. My right one went out in the 20s. Is this normal or is this a sign of a bigger problem?

      With DRLs still activated it makes sense, doesn't sound like a sign of a bigger problem, but I'd replace them both to see if one consistently goes out sooner than the other.

      HIDs or halogens? If HIDs, don't use the Auto function as the constant igniting of the bulbs (driving into and out of shade) will burn them out quicker.

      Thanks for the help fellas.

      What are some good bulbs? (Halogen)

      If your looking for long life, than your standard halogen will be your best bet. They are not that expensive anyway, so who cares. I believe Sylvania makes a Long Life bulb. Any of the White/Hyperwhite/HID-look bulbs (Silverstars, PIAA, Nokya, etc.) run hot and burn out much quicker.
