Anyone elses 407 go through them like smarties? Ive owned two 407s and they have both blown headlight bulbs in no time. Cheap ones last days, good ones last a month or two then pop. One went yesterday then im just driving home now and the others gone!

Common or just me?

My ex's 307 went through a phase of that, then popped a fuse and didn't do it again.
I've had to replace them both in the 407 once in 18 months which is fine as they're only 15ish a pair.

Neither my last one or this one has ever blown a headlight bulb, but i do know 407xjr seems to go through a few in his 407. Does yours tell you if a headlight bulb has blown ??

Psst i put Hid's in my last one but i'm not tempting fate on this one :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Bulb blowing could be down to either an electrical spike or increased resistance due to a bad earth.

Check and clean the fuse (it wouldn't hurt to clean the fuse socket and use a brand new fuse) and the same with the electrical plug for the bulb, giving the metal ring that the bulb sits onto a clean also.
