no. its not.

i've had this happen to me atleast 6 times already. the first handful of times they replaced the bulbs. then i asked a few friends who are techs, and they told me the ONLY fix is toe replace the harness. also i know its not a bulb because it would sometimes work when i hit a big bump, and then stop when a bump was hit again, thus the bulb is CLEARLY still working fine its the connection thats messed up.

from factory they come twisted, angled and sometimes pulling on the bulb/headlight thus it causes a bad connection, bad ground, etc etc.

if you want to fix it yourself cut you wheel, unclip the fender liner and look at the harness, it will be at a weird angle. in one instance for me the passenger side was being crushed and pressed against something metal.

the problem is with position and sometimes quality of harness, not cheap bulbs. please dont spread wrongful information if you can't back it up.
