Car: 2012 Subaru Outback.
After years the factory bulbs were dim. I got them replaced (by a dealer, because the procedure is a pain for this car) and I resurfaced the outside of the glass, which looks really good now. The new bulbs seem brighter... somewhat. From inside the cockpit at night, the left bulb appears very bright and the right bulb is almost invisible. I basically feel like I have a spotlight aimed to the left. There is a very distinct diagonal line coming out the front of my car aimed at 11 o'clock or so. But more bewildering is that if I get out of the car and stand in front, and then do a slow squat from head height to very low, both lights appear to go from dim to bright at exactly the same parts of the squat, suggesting that they're aimed the same, as they should be.
See attached image for how it looks at night from inside... note that this was taken from the center of the cockpit, not from the driver's seat. Notice how dim the right edge of the photo looks compared to the left. I'll be taking it back to the dealer soon to see what they say, but I'm curious what ideas might come out here.
