Are you using dip bulbs for coloring reasons? If so going to LED would be better, especially for headlights.

OR are the xenon bulbs dipped?

They don't look dipped. What temperature did you order? If you stick around 5,000k it should be brighter.

8000k is going to be on the blueish spectrum, which isn't going to be as bright as the 5-6000k range, is that what you're aiming for?

Can you post a picture of that? You'll need to open housing to access the reflectors. If it's bad, its probably easier to replace the housing.

You should be able to see the reflectors by looking at the housing from the front.

Those reflectors look fine, hopefully the new bulbs will be brighter for you.
