Well in 2 years thats #3 in the low beam area, the piaa high beams are still in service after 2 years.
Maybe I should upgrade across the board?

Join the club Pdad....I've gone through 2 fogs and a low beam in under 6-7 mos.....and I still have the SS highs and fogs. I think the only reason the highs haven't blown yet was because I never use them. My lows/fogs work better than the highs....of course if I'd aim the lights i maybe better off.

I have yet to have an issue with an SS.... Still going.... But if they do go I guess I'll be looking for an alternative...

My blues in the 91 are better than 2 years with no issues as well...

I think the failures have a lot to do with the DRL'*....

On the Bonnevilles do the High beams burn at 80% or is it the Low Beams that burn at 80%?

Lakeville...I think our year and trim level come with poorly adjusted lights. Mine are so far out...and that'* after I adjusted them a bit. Had I left them where they were Bill would have borrowed the car for coon hunting.

the SS h3'* didn't last me over 2 months from what i remember.

the SS 9005s haven't been a problem (had for about a year now)

the piaa lows are still working fine for me after about 2.5 years
