H7 Bulb! Advise please.

Anyone who has changed an E90 headlight bulb knows how uncomfortable it is. I've changed both sides within 2 weeks. Last night, the last I replaced went out again. Bulbs at the dealer are almost US$ 30, but the worst part is how hard they are to replace. I don't want to buy another BMW bulb at the dealer and risk losing $30 again. Can anyone recommend a good and reliable H7 bulb?

Thanks

The reason the bulbs are burning out is that you are touching them with your fingers. You need gloves on when handling halogen bulbs.

Very possible, that is a common mistake.

The sylvania bulbs the dealer should be giving you are very reliable.

Only other option is an upgrade like PIAA we offer.

What an ass backwards setup. HID bulbs in a reflector type headlight. Also good way to blind oncoming driver.
