But considering how quickly you are going through headlight bulbs I would check the charging voltage. A higher voltage will result in nice bright beams but shorten their lives considerably. Also, FWIW, you could ask the dealer to eliminate the DRLs as that should extend the life of those bulbs some. I beleive your DRLs use the high beams with conventional headlights, but I could be wrong. -- -Fred W
