Hey sickcelica696. When you installed those bulbus did you touch the glass on the bulbs? Becasue if you did that is why they burnt out. The oil from human skin get in the bulb and then when the bulb gets hot it cant cool properly. Thus causing the bulb to burn out premature. Next time you install them if you do touch the bulb what you can do is use some rubbing alcohol on the bulb to clean the oil off. Then it will last longer.

you did something wrong then, it's not the bulbs fault unless they were faulty
