    And if you fit NB's again, chances are you'll have to replace them again in a few months.

    Weigh up the costs of how many NB's you'll buy against the price of a HID kit.

    Keep ur sticky fingers off the bulbs when your replacing them. The oil from your skin boils on the surface of the bulb and eventually puts extremely fine cracks in the "glass" (quartz), once this happens the gas escapes and the filament burns out.

    Fair enough, you may be aware of this, most people are, but all too many people think it's a load of rubbish and choose to ignore the warnings.
