White Halogen Lights

Anyone have suggestions on good white Halogen lights for my '13 WRX? Im looking at these Sylvania ZXe lights on youtube. They look alright, but I see on some forums that they only last about a year and burn out.

Suggestions?

Overwattage bulbs tend to not have long lives. The lower power the bulb the longer it will last. You need to decide what's important.

I was considering those when I bought all new bulbs for my '13 as well, but decided against them for the same reasons.

I went with Philips. I heard/read many good reviews on them and I've been running mine for almost a year with no problems out of x6 bulbs all being replaced. They have the Crystal visions which are a pure white, then the Diamond visions for a slight blue hue. Do NOT go by the color charts you'll find when you search for them. They all show the Crystal visions as a slight blue hue...I assure you they're not. After swapping/testing multiple bulbs for the look I wanted I am now running the Diamond visions for my lows/fogs (so they all match when on regularly at night) and the Crystal visions for my highs. The Crystal visions omit more lumens and are much brighter when I need the added light.
