I had one of my 9005 converted silverstars blow out tonight. I haven't had them in for two months, and one has blown already. It look like the filament was melted like solder. I am always very carefull when putting in headlights. I never touch the bulb, and I am always gentle putting them in. But I have to say, maybe there is a reason we shouldn't be doing this. I mean, the glass looked all burnt and the filament was dripping like solder. I won't be spending that kind of money on headlights again.
