Hello GRMers. My wife's 2003 Jetta's (294,000 miles) headlights could be better we think.

I am looking at: GE 9007NH {#9007NHBP, 9007NHBP2} Nighthawk VS GE 9007NHP {#9007NHPBP2} Nighthawk Platinum VS PHILIPS 9007XV {#9007XVB1, 9007XVB2} X-treme Vision.

Which would be the best results? What would the difference be between the Nighthawk / nighthawk Platinum / X-treme vision?

Any real world opinions? HID is out of the question due to cost.

I have actually installed these on a car and was surprised how much better they were than stock head lignts. No idea of quality but at $30 it was worth a shot and was cheaper than the silverstars.
