I had one burn out, after about 3 months. I have street glow now, we will see how those do.

And DONT TOUCH THE BULBS when installing them!

If you touch them, use rubbing alcohol or a soapy water solution to clean them.

If you touch the bulb with your hands the oil in your skin will create a hot spot on the bulb and cause it to burn hot on that spot causing it to burn out.
