    Foglights keep burning out

    So my girlfriend has a 2005 wrx and we put some yellow fog lights in the factory housings. They only last a couple months at a time. Does anybody else have this issue or is it the brand of bulb she buys? These are what she buys. Click image for larger version.

    12V 55W " High Performance" bulbs will always burn out faster than normal lower wattage bulbs. Mine burned out fast too, I upgraded to LED's

    How is the light output from LED's? Do you have yellow ones? How much were they? Where did you get them from and how has the reliability been?

    Sorry for all the questions, I just getting sick of changing the bulbs for her all the time

    They came from an ebay store that had good ratings, I can't remember the name. Look on there and you'll see the price ranges. They've been reliable so far and the output is as expected.

    They cut fog, like they're supposed to. They're not a second set of headlights or anything, ya know. But they get the job done.
