I got a decent deal on a pair of these bulbs (H11) on Amazon last year in April. One of them flared out on me yesterday. So, 1.5 year life span - not too impressive. The bulbs are not "colored" and were slightly whiter than OEM (Phillips from Germany). The PIAA bulbs have "Made in Germany" printed on them so I suspected they were made by Phillips. Anyone else here try a pair of these? I'm glad I kept my original one year old bulbs. This was not $40 well spent. I should have learned my lesson in the past. "Improved" performance bulbs don't seem to last very long. My best, so far, were a pair of Hella long-life H4's used in my previous vehicle.
