halogen headlight bulbs keep burning out
 
only on the right side - i've burned through two bulbs in two weeks. i searched around a little bit and couldn't find anything about this problem. does anyone know what could be causing this?

what bulbs are you using? Philips Vision Plus or OEM seem to last a very long time unlike with some "xenon look" "hid effect" "blue/white" bulbs made in china.

Also check for discoloration on the copper bulb plug and for arc spots

Are you touching the glass part when installing? That will kill the bulbs life. Just my $.02
