While we're on the subject... Is it just me or getting PURE WHITE led's not easy... i'd say at least half of the 14 I ordered had a pretty strong purple tint to them... while some were a nice white color like I wanted...

Is there any LED that works inside the day time running light that will not burn out? [/b]
i believe if you read the warnings from most 194 LED bulb distributors, they warn against using them in applications like the sealed headlight assembly because of the heat generated by the headlamp bulbs. that's why your bulbs are burning out so quickly

the thread is now about the 194 supernova bulbs that have a heatsink for higher heat applications.

Hey I just posted in the other 194 topic. I bought the Supernova's now I need to figure out how to get them to fit in. How did you get them to fit the housing? What did you use to notch the heat shield?

A "voltage spike" due to heat in the headlight housing, or something different?

I still had one functional and after talking to the guy from supelumination,I found out that you can destroy leds if they are on when you start the car.I figured if i had one burned out i might as well test the theory.Sure enough,i had my drl's on when i turned it over and it started strobing almost instantly,it failed within 20 minutes.So i can confirm that a voltage spike killed it.
