Bought this in Dec 2014. At the car's June MOT, bulb was still OK. Neighbour just noticed it was burned-out this evening. <10months AND SUMMER MONTHS !!! i.e. very little use. I heard from folks that the stronger illumination necessiatated (or was at least commonly associated with) shorter lifecycle. I never really noticed a big increase in brightness after I fitted the bulb but i notice a BIG decrease in duration (OEM bulb lasted 5 years!, no change in use pattern of this vehicle in this interval). Yes I handled the bulb without touching the glass directly (used gloves / cloth). Osram: driving up the costs of motoring!
