    I hear sylvania bulbs are good, it's a hit or miss when it comes to the lifespan of the bulb.

    Meh. It's all opinion. People say retros cost too much but spend $400 on a TRD Pro grill. It's literally $1.49 of plastic. At least u can make an argument that some craft and quality comes from investing in good retros.

    Depends on what you are looking for.

    Philips Crystal Vision is a fully coated bulb, meaning lower output and bulb life but 'whiter' light. Philips X-treme vision or Osram Nightbreakers are better choices if you are looking for maximum stock wattage output.
