H7 (and also H4) lamps in a Diesel engine doesn't seem to have a long life. I have had this problem also with my previous cars a Peugeot 306, Citroen Xsara, Citroen Saxo, all with a Diesel engine. I hear the same story from other people with a Diesel car, it seem to be the heavy vibrations caused by the Diesel engine.
It is a pity that H7 lamps are not so cheap as H4.

Yes, that'll really help.
If you buy a Ford TDCi diesel, it'll be such a vastly different engine to an HDi PSA car...
Clue - Ford buy HDi lumps off PSA and rebadge them to TDCi.

I have had my 405 td for 8 years now, and have hardly ever had to change a headlight bulb. I have never changed the driving light bulbs. It is possible that you have a vibration problem around the headlight, but the one thing which kills bulbs is too many volts.

It seems to be somthing that effects the new cars only, 1998 and up. The Peugeot dealer and Citroen dealer did check the power circuit, but couldn't find anything. A friend of me with a C5 HDI, also has the same problem with his light bulbs. It must be something with the heavy diesel vibrations.???
