In my opinion Sylvania SilverStar's, GE Nighthawk, etc and all the other premium performance halogen headlight bulbs are one giant waste of money. There's a reason why those bulbs don't come as OE on any vehicles and it's because the performance gains are generally marginal, the prices are ridiculous compared to standard halogen, and the durability is often questionable.

Long life halogen bulbs are another great waste of money. Just today I saw an ad in a CT flyer for 2 long life Sylvania H11 bulbs for only $50! The H4 bulbs in the Yaris have an shorter lifespan that the newer H11 bulbs and it's still common for them to last up to 10 years. So anybody buying a long life H11 bulb had better plan on hanging on to that car for the next 20 years to justify the high price of those bulbs.
