Does anyone have Sylvania ultra bright bulbs or GE nighthawk? Trying to figure out which is a better bulb.

Silverstars aren't worth it.

Night Hawks, I'm not sure.

PIAA Intense Whites are the way to go.

If you want a slight blue tint, get PIAA Xtreme White.

PIAA are better, the others may last 3-6 months or go with HID Kits

DON'T install HIDs unless you upgrade to '00+ projector housings. Your reflector housings will just scatter the light, and create LOTS of glare. Annoying and distracting to drivers around you, and illegal in many places.

I've had very short life from Sylvania Silverstars in a couple of different cars and can't say I noticed any improved visibility with them. I haven't decided what to try next but it will be something else.

Go HID. They have a little more life for cheap. $50 to $60 isn't worth it for light bulbs, especially Silverstars.
