    Installed a set of PIAA 15224 H4 Style Xtreme Bulbs in my Taco about a year ago. Very pleased with increase in intensity and color.

    However, one failed after only a year (L). I ordered a new set to give PIAA one more chance.

    The original equipment bulbs never failed and I am glad I saved them. As they will be used until the new bulbs come in

    I thought this information might be of help for other TACO owners.

    You shouldn't be surprised by this at all. Any of the brighter stock replacement bulbs typically have a much shorter life span. If you want long-life bulbs, stick with stock or those labeled as such. They won't be as bright and will have some yellow in the color rather than white but the trade off is their life span. Those brighter bulbs burn brighter and will burn out much quicker.

    This exactly. Read the labels on the bulbs. The brighter the intensity the shorter the life..
