    PIAA bulbs never last long though. Had a few sets.

    Lifespans of both are rated about the same. Check sylvanias website and they say about a year is an average lifespan.

    2 solid years on Sylvania ZXE. Though I don't turn my headlights on during daylight just to look cool. But mine have truly lasted much more than a year, they are a much brighter white light than stock. I have had people ask if they were HIDs. Though no substitute for HIDs if that's what you desire, these are very nice quality product.

    Philips VisionPlus and Philips ExtremeVision are good bulbs. They come in +60%, +100%, and +130%. I'm currently running the 100's in headlights and fogs. The 60's weren't bad either. High beams on both are awesome. Lows are whiter/brighter than stock. And they don't have the blue coating on them, which ultimately translates to longer life.
