Alright, so, this is probably a n00b question --

My headlights serve only the purpose of providng a nice glow around my car. I cleaned them, thought that the yellow film that was on it was the problem... and now I have a bright white glow as opposed to a dull yellow glow... but still, they don't extend much further than two feet in front of me. The brights work just fine... are the bulbs for the low beams slowly burning out? They look like they're aimed correctly when I shine them up against a wall.. but they are just very dim. Anyone have any ideas?

The headlights just aren't bright. The parking lights come on, the high and low beams all come on; just the low beams are not as bright as they should be. Do celica-bulbs slowly dim out over time? Could this be an aiming problem? Any ideas?

as for aiming, park in front of a garage door at night and see if one side is higher then the other or are they the same level..it should stay at the same level..

I took this picture tonight -- the left is my celica, the right is my sister's civic. When we turn the high beams on, they look about the same (like the civics are in this picture, one beam per light as opposed to the smiley face of the celica).

I actually ended up resetting the bulbs (thanks to vegeta for the idea) and they got a lot brighter. Someone had installed them incorrectly. But thanks for trying to help!
