Bobby, I've been using PIAA Xtreme White bulbs for my '01 ES for the past 18 months, and they've worked great with no problems. I got these bulbs online at http://www.optauto.com. Check it out

Silverstars - i didn't like them very much. I tried a pair of H3 silverstars... yeah they weren't brighter and they were just a tad whiter. Not worth the money
Xenon Coolwhites - hmmm are you talking about the Silvania Coolblues? I've never heard of coolwhites before but my friend uses the silvania coolblues. Ehh they're not too bad. With certain harness they work better. Like i said, my friend uses those in her 98 accord and they're pretty white. not HID white, just a whiter version of the OEM lights.
Blackhawks - not sure, never tried them.
You definately can't go wrong with a pair of PIAAs however. They're really white while they still retain the brightness. Most of these xenon bulbs will look great, but you'll lose light.
I just put in Silverstars for the 9005 highs ($37.99/pair) and they are wicked bright, lets see how long they last. They were replacing PIAA Xtreme Whites ($69/95/pair) that lasted 2 years. The PIAAs were always on too, as they are the DRLs. So far very happy.
I also put in the Silverstar H3 ($18.72/each) and they are crisp but not as white as the 9005 counterpart. The PIAA Xtreme White H3s were definately whiter. They ain't gonna be here long. I am going back to my favorite PIAA Ion Crystal fogs bulbs---they are the yellow ones.
