Re: Multiple Headlight Replacements
You can have a bad run of bulbs, so maybe try a different brand as a test. Auto headlamps can also be an issue on cold starts, as it tends to make the lights 'flash' which is hard on a cold filament. Maybe just turn them off in the winter, and back on after the engine is running.
I had a bad alternator / regulator on my old Subaru and it toasted headlamp bulbs. Check the battery with the engine running and make sure it doesn't head over 15v when the battery is fully charged.
