CREE LED emitters are rated for 50,000 hours minimum, and that's just until the LED reaches less than half brightness. Therefore, a bulb failing was due to a manufacturing issue, not just dying out from normal use. Even if your driving only has an average speed of 10 mph, the bulb should have lasted a half million miles.

This attitude is the reason we all get screwed from vendors who have absolutely insane markups/profit margins. The fact that the car the part is being applied to happens to have a roundel on the hood makes no impact on how expensive it is to manufacture the part. I'm not bashing Lux in particular here, but the vendors in general, especially since they tend to all carry the same parts made in China.
