I love my SS bulbs; when I got my car and still had stock fogs I used the 880 SS bulbs and one burnt out right before I put in my Hellas with SS h3s. To this date 10months on the h3'* & going strong. I also had a set of 9006 SS bulbs for almost 2 years and no burned out bulbs. Now I've had 9005 SS lowbeams for 5 months and still good. I think it'* more a luck thing then the bulbs just being prone to burn out

Yeah I stated previously I was not happy with the SS light performance but I forgot to add they didnt burn out. They lasted until I sold that car probably still working now I guess.

I'm using Cool Blues Highs and Lows for about 3 years now with no problems. A friend of mine has SS in his 2002 GP for about 3 years with no problems either.

I have them in my car. First set lasted just over a year...coming up on two years now with the second set. I could tell quite a difference between them and the originals. I put them in a ''93 SSE, and the difference was not as noticeable.
