    Just require opinions please. Had my CLK for nearly 2 years. In that time I've had 2 stop lights and now 2 dipped lights blowing. Only have my previous makes of cars to compare but I feel that it may be slightly excessive or am I wrong? I hasten to add that the bulbs replaced have all been genuine parts and have only been replaced with the same.

    All you can do is to check the running voltage of the car and this should be no more than 14volt

    I would also suggest you check brand/quality of bulbs as it can make a huge difference in longevity.
