Unfortunately, I'm not one of them.  I've been running these bulbs for a few
years now and seem to be replacing the sockets every 3 to 6 months (they are
$2.79 each at Pep Boys, BTW) and I'm running 4 relays -- 1 for each filament
-- and 12/14 gauge wire.  It's not as good as the Euro setup but a heck of a
lot cheaper!
