Default H.I.D lights

What are the best H.I.D. or imitation lights that I could buy for the Trailblazer and not spend a fortune. Last night hit a turkey and the drivers headlight burned out and thought I would try to replace them with something cool. Neighbor always brags about the ones in his Caddy and says that I should have them

silverstars or similar, unless you want to install projectors.

For the money, I prefer the Sylvania Xtra Vision. $20/pair, brighter than silverstars, last longer.

If you have 9006/9005 bulbs, you can get HIR 9012/9011 bulbs, too. Approaching the brightness of HID, lasts as long as standard bulbs, but they're $22-35 each.

Halogens bulbs just aren't comprable to HID period. But DO NOT put HID into any halogen housing!

HIR are pretty damn good though.

But for a regular bulb, xtravision are the best performance from sylvania, I had philips hi-visibility bulbs and thought they were even better, had a nice white light, without any blue filters.
