7 Year vs 7 Month Bulb

Back in July, one of the headlight bulbs in my 2003 Vibe burned out. It was the original bulb, and lasted almost 7 years. I decided to replace both bulbs at the same time, and I upgraded to a Sylvania XtraVision bulb. The bulb is supposed to be brighter than their standard bulb, but there is a trade off. The extra brightness means a shorter life span for the bulb. Well, one of the new bulbs burned out today, so it only lasted 7 months. I was extremely disappointed. I still had the working bulb that I removed in July, so I just used it to replace the bad bulb.
