hey guys wats up i have ebay h.i.d's adapted in my halogen housing and this week i was driving through some bumpy trail. later that night i noticed that in my dash my passenger side headlight was out. i pulled over and the bulb itself was cracked and theres broken glass all over the housing. are the bulbs that sensitive that they cracked from the bumpy ride or could that have been something else. thanks:thumbsup:

Did you touch them with your fingerprints prior to install?

Since its ebay, quality might not be up to par

Most HID set-ups are shock resistant... it's probably cause some oil from someone's hand was trasferred onto the bulb. But there's nothing you can really do...

I take my Bimmer literally off roading cause I have a ranch with horses... and the gravel trail doesn't make it any better... and no problems with the HID.

Hope that helps!
