    I can't understand what it is that you are asking. I'm not trying to be an ass but try being very descriptive and using full and complete sentences. I and the rest of use would like to help you if we knew what it is you are trying to say/describe.

    you must have a wireing issue, because my stock headlights are bright.


    oh yes, change the bulb, that could be an issue

    you can upgrade the bulb, check your wiring, or get new headlights...

    i would try the bulb first...

    not stupid at all. if its nasty yelowish dull ,i recomend wet sanding it with 4000 grit paper and then clear coating it twice. They turn out like new.
