    I've heard of this on the silver stars. That's the main reason I haven't upgrade to them yet. I just went with a higher output light and didn't spend the extra on the silver star as some were having problems a couple years back with them.
    Plus, if you are in wet weather make sure the housing is all sealed up with high temp silicone so that water doesn't get in there and cause a temp difference and pop !!! My .02
    However, the dielectric grease is needed as well.... mentioned in this thread.

    I'm running Silverstars with no problems. If you're not touching the bulbs I'd bet their is a sealing issue and they are getting damp.

    I've blown a couple of silverstars. No moisture in there, and I haven't touched them. It happens if I turn them off with the fog light switch. If I leave that switch on they don't blow.

    Question Led

    Does anybody know of anybody specific that sells LED stock replacements for our cars? For fog lights, but including all the other lights too. Rear turn signals, DRL's, and all that. Halo's Lights? like the guy off of ws7.se
