Sealed or Unsealed? Stock or Halogen?

My passenger side low beam burnt out the other, and I'm thinking of replacing both headlights with either Sylvania Xtra-Vision sealed beams ($22.74) or Hella H4 DOT-legal halogens ($55.64).

1) Are the Xtra-Visions worth double the price of stock?

2) Are the H4's worth double the price of the Xtra-Visions?

Hey, surprised that model has generic sealed beams, but so it does...

Get the Hellas. So much better. Very reasonable e-code upgrade path, particularly compared to cars with model-specific headlamp enclosures. $55 is a bargain! You will be amazed by the difference.
