OK,

So I fitted a pair of Philips Blue Vision H4 bulbs from www.powerbulbs.co.uk the weekend before last, and having only managed to go out on one occassion at night one of the bulbs has blown!!!! A sum total of about 1 hours use....

Unbelievable, phoned the guys at powerbulbs and they have sent me another set and I shall return mine so they can evaluate what's happenned to the bulb.

Now, I don't know much about all the gasses and stuff inside these bulbs, but from the picture attached (you can spot the knackered bulb a mile off) does anyone know what happened to this bulb???

Maybe some grease on the bulb from when you fitted it?

Did you wash your hands and use gloves :p

Never touched the bulb, only held it by the electrical connector, is this what happens to them when they get grease on them then?
