    My early 2004 model S40 eats a headlamp every 3000 miles. From what I
    understand there was a TSB for earlier model years dealing with this
    problem. Is there a cure? This is rediculous!
    Many thanks,
    Greg

    I own a 2000 S40 and having no problems with headlamps. I have replaced
    previous osram bulbs with philips xtreme power bulbs just for having
    more powerful light output. Previous bulbs were ok during replacement.
    And still they are.

    I was burning headlights too fast on my 200 S40. Headlight
    burnout has lessened in the last couple of years to what I
    think is normal (considering that the low beams serve as
    daytime running lights). I haven't asked, but I think the
    dealer did something while the car was in for regular service.

    I think DRL is the answer. In my country S40's (-04) doesn't have DRL
    fitted by factory.

    On my 2000 S40 the headlights were burning out every 4-6 months but
    now they last 2 years since I keep the headlight switch set to DRL -
    only problem is highbeams don't stay on unless you change the switch
    position again.
