That'* what I didn't get...I didn't touch the bulb either. Oh well, I'm looking forward to the Silverstars anyway. I wanted to get those in the first place, but had already spent the $$ on these before I found a set of Silverstars.

Ya, that'* the good thing, very quick and easy fix. A lot easier than when my Angel Eyes blew after one week. I guess I'm NOT having good luck with lights lately. But my Angel Eyes are still fine and it'* been about 3 weeks.

Do like me, get a pair of them nice Mechanix gloves. Well worth the $40 bux. The basics are much cheaper, and available evrywhere, but I wanted the Mpacts...

You read my mind Jason. Unfortunately they were out of stock...AGAIN!! There'* ALWAYS a problem with something when I go to WalMart.

So I went to Pepboys and had to buy them separately, which cost $42.88 for both.

I noticed that in the headlight that the previous bulb blew, there is a small amount of condensation in it. Could this be why that bulb went after a short time? I know the bulbs are very sensitive to liquid, maybe that caused it? It is only a very small amount, and I don't see how the condensation could have gotten on the bulb itself.

I think tomorrow I'll take apart that headlight and reseal it just in case.
