    2013, H11. Sylvania sucks. 4 months, 6 months, 10 months, 13 months. Need to carry a spare bulb on a road trip. Ridiculous !!

    Any headlights that actually last? Even if LED conversion ??

    fuuuuck... maybe I'll try AC Delco next time. Can't be worse than Sylvania.

    You’re not touching the bulbs with your fingers or anything oily are you?

    I’ve had so-so luck with Sylvania bulbs. Seems like the brighter they say they are, the shorter their life.

    GTR Ultra 2 LED headlights work great for me, but they are damn expensive.

    Last month one of the Sylvania Silverstar Ultras went out in the 2001 that I installed about 3 years ago, maybe 4

    TRY Hella halogens. In my old girl they still go more than a year @100watts, 1/2 price of slyvs if you look a little.There is a xreference for the different numbers too, for the mounting flanges/plugs and wattage/lumens.
    I still like halogens better, don't affect night vision as bad as leds in my opinion.

    I bought Hikari LED’s for a 2015 Tahoe and after the switch I noticed the day time running led strip no longer comes on, only the headlights now. Anyone else have that issue?
