Gimpy Celica
I went to Wal Mart to get some study food, and I was behind a black truck and I thought to myself hmmmm one of my headlights look funny...

One of my MTEC's are burnt out. cry cry

Ive only had them for MAYBE three months. Is this a normal life cycle?

Im ordering some new ones, I should have gotten a spare to begin with but...Ill just have to borrow a spare from a friend. So sad, so sad.

i dont know how hot they run, but make sure you dont touch the glass part. the oils from your body can cause the bulbs to burn out faster, dont ask me how, i just have seen it a million times
