Angry Headlight Bulb keeps blowing

I am having a problem with my head lights and do not know what the problem is.
I bought the car 2 years ago. About 4 months into having the car I upgraded to the silverstar bulbs. About 2 months into having them they both blew out. I went cheap this time and put in the generic bulbs. About 3 months into changing those out one of the bulbs blew. In the last 2 months I have had to replace the passenger side bulb and before that it was the drivers side. I have been careful to not touch the bulb, or to get anything on the bulb. The only thing I can think of is an electrical problem. Please help me out with this one.

Thanks,
CJ

I wouldn't really consider what youre experiencing highly unusual..I bought silverstars for my old car (9005's or 9006') and they blew out FAST..friggin huge waste of money.I have 122,000 on my RSX and sometimes it will go for almost a year between bulb blowouts, sometimes a month. I dont know why they blow so often, but they are a PITA to change. I always keep a few extra h3s in the glovebox just in case...they are like 4 bux at walmart.

Yeah, I had silverstars and they crapped out after 3 weeks to a month. I got PIAAs, but switched with HIDs. Now I'm using PIAAs for highs.

Go with HIDs if you have the money.

Silverstars didn't last for me either - got tired of swapping em out so I just went back to regular bulbs until I can get my grimy mits on some HID's.
