He said they didn't go out at the same time a few days apart sounds like bulbs to me.

It's bulbs. Correct me if I'm wrong, but they're dual filament? Meaning if the lo-beam filament is burnt out, the hi-beam could still work?

And I had both headlights, and one fog light go out one day after the next. 3 days, 3 lights.
