The sylvania silverstars get my vote, been useing them on all my cars for years. The HOD bulbs from AAC also work real well and are a little cheaper than the sylvanias. As far as install goes just reach behind the headlight find where the bulb is inserted, release the locking tab on the wiring, unplug, twist out the original bulb and istall the new.

Might want to check out the Philips bulbs. Available at Meijers or O'Rielly's.
If you want whiter light, Crystal Vision Ultra is as good or better than Silverstar Ultra. cheaper and will last longer. Xtreme power is a bright, clear glass bulb.

Aren't those the blue lights that people hate, because they are installed in a halogen housing without a projector, causing glare?

To the OP: if you can get the Hella lights, that is what I put in my Camry. (Picture in Sig) I got them as the wavelength was close to the silverstars, but the specs say they last longer.
