Some people get through loads of H6W bulbs no matter what car they own.
Other people have their H6W bulbs last for years.
Common theme on most forums.
Which makes me think it is more down to the user than the bulbs or the car.
My H6W bulbs were lasting far longer than most peoples LEDs...!
Those H6W bulbs generally came from Halfords too.
Considering I had the same 156 for 14-years, I don't think I got through many. Can't remember how many, but it wasn't an excessive number at all.
I did go through a phase of loosing several H7 dip beam bulbs about 12-years ago. The only replacements I could get quickly were Bosch from the Halfords near work. They were lasting only a few days!!
Changed to Osram or Philips from Powerbulbs.com and all was good from then on.
