You may find that you have to spread the wire leads on the light a bit. The DD lights use a single wire bent over the form. That can make connection to the socket a bit of a hit-or-miss. OEM bulbs use a thinner wire bent into a "U" shape and are effectively "wider".

I bought some in October or November. Both are already no good.
I've had one fail, but DD's warranty service was great. Just email them with enough information to find your order.

Since they let me keep the old one, I took it apart. I noticed it doesn't have a regulator - meaning no protection against high system voltages. I'm wondering if that has something to do with it. I'm not sure what kind of over-voltage margin the design has. I do think the Cruze has periods of higher voltage than most cars. Older cars had a charging voltage of 13.8. GM went to a 14.2 for a different battery chemistry. And I know the Cruze will sometimes get up to 15V.
