Re: why does my 156 eat ,bulbs?
Are you holding the bulbs through a cloth? Halogen bulbs lifespans are substantially reduced if your fingerprints (oil from your skin) are left on them? Try wiping them thoroughly with a lint free cloth, then avoid contact except through a cloth.
(Apologies and please don't take offence if you are already doing this). Just thought I'd mention as a suggestion anyway. The volume of bulbs you are going through is helluva excessive though, so might be a combination of other factors. I've had my 147 over a year and only changed one sidelight bulb.
