I have silvania silverstar ultras in my truck. I could tell a difference, they help. And they cost less then HIDs.

The reason I went with HID's was because my pigtails for the 05 conversion burned up. Didn't want to mess with that anymore.

I put aftermarket 02 style in my early 99 with silver stars and I'm satisfied.

HID's are the only way...once you get them you will never want anything else
He's got a point :D

You save a little at first going with good bulbs but they wont last that long since the brighter the bulb in halogen the shorter the lifespan. Hids pay for themselves pretty quick when thats factored in.

I liked the silvania superbrights I had in my last truck but I got tired of replacing them. It had daytime running lights which is what probably was killing them so fast.
