Noticed that the bulb on the driver's side seemed brighter than the passenger. Is this normal?

What's strange is that when I'm driving, the passenger side appears brighter on the road.

It sounds like your headlights need to be aimed, look at them from different angles, or look at a wall with your car 25 feet away, and see if they look even

maybe it's just the camera...the passenger side is usually aimed slightly higher than the drivers side. this is so that you don't blind oncoming traffic on your left and that you can see the signs on your right. i have one side that appears to be slightly more blue but it's not super noticeable. what you want to do is maybe check that the bulbs are in there correctly. you might just have an alignment issue.

Make sure the bulbs are in the sockets correctly. This happened to me when I first installed bulbs; one side aimed higher than the other due to turning the bulb I the socket wrong.
