Fog light bulb upgrade

I'm wanting to upgrade the bulb in my foglights. I have read some say go with sliverstar ultra 9005 and others say hid bulbs. Which one would be better n last longer?

9005's will be cheaper and easier for a good upgrade, hid's will be brighter than the 9005's and last longer but you then have the higher cost and ballasts to mount.

In my '01, it calls for 9007 in the headlights, 9145 in the fogs (basically same as the 9005). I run the SilverStars. I like them. They have lasted quite a while.

I m really dont want to replace them after this. I'm just heard that silverstars doing last but 6 months to a year.
