MTEC H-3 bulbs blowing

I bought a pair of these about 6 months ago. After about months the left went out, now the right one has gone out. Whats the deal? Anyone else had this happen.

my MTECHs are still fine. oils from your hands get to the bulbs...at high temp they can cause the bulb to go bye bye...

I just go JDM.

PIAAs and MTECHHs seem too pricey for just regular bulbs. Some PIAAs cost as much as HID bulbs. eek

Yeah no shit, people don't know how to do anything correctly. I installed my MTECHS with surgeons gloves on, you never want to touch the bulb of any high temp light because the oils in your skin will boil up on the bulb and possibly blow the light.

Just be careful, i did and i am happy with my MTECHS
