    Are the lenses foggy? Check the voltage at the back of the bulb to find the voltage drop. Try the Philips +150 bulbs but if you see the voltage drops is very high, a couple of relays can make a huge difference. The central electrics module on the T5 sometimes has a bulb voltage reduction function aimed at improving bulb life and it would be worth getting that checked as I have seen it turned right down.
