    Default Stuffville Bulbs - Not recommended.

    I know a few of us on here hae bought Stuffville bulbs off Fleabay...... well the story does not have a happy ending, and the moral is: 6 Bulbs for £13.99 is not a bargain, cos they just don't last!!!!

    3 of the 6 bulbs have expired within 4 months and O certainly wont be getting any more!!!!

    Ah well..... you get what you pay for I suppose!!!

    I've had mine in since January with no problems as yet, could it be you had some from a dodgy batch or even an electrical problem with the car? Are the 3 that have blown H7s? If you need another I have some spare.

    Halfords own brand bulbs don't last much longer and they're a lot more expensive! Not worth buying cheap bulbs. I always get Osram or Philips.

    I don't know how much you drive at night,but don't expect them to last a lot longer! Best I ever got out of Halfords bulbs was around a year and they both went within minutes of each other, so no lights. The one saving grace was that the car had foglamps fitted, so even though I was loathe to switch them on, they ensured people could see me.
