Hi Nick - when you fitted the new bulbs did make sure you did not touch them with your hands - if so this will make them blow very quickly (its all about the salts on yor skin). When buying replacement bulbs I alawys try to get the ones in sealed boxes - that way you can be fairly certain no-oe has been there before you. If in doubt you should clean them with either meths, surgical spirit or something similar. Its best to use paper tissues and discard it afer cleaning each bulb as you can easiy transfer dirt from one bulb to another. One other remote possibility is that the alternator is pushing out a higher voltage than usual.
