    been replaced 3 times in 2 years? due to failure? have you pulled the bulbs you have on there now after this most recent failure? doesn't sound right. i'd get a set of new bulbs and disable your DRL if you're comfortable with controling the lights by yourself on your own car. could be the bulbs you are using. you sure you didn't get fingerprints on any of the bulbs you installed yourself? fingerprints and other oils on the bulb decreases the life of or causes premature failure on headlight bulbs.

    No, I havent pulled the bulbs from the most recent failure. Was planning on getting new bulbs and checking them then. BUT how do you disable the DRL???? i drive alot and they are always on. The only way to turn them off is to pull my e-brake.
