Dim low beam 2006 325i

Hello all! I just recently acquired a 2006 325i sedan. I have noticed that the driver's side low beam is much dimmer than the passenger side. When I turn on the high beams, both seem to be of equal brightness. I would like advice as to whether this seems more of a wiring ground issue or just an easy bulb replacement. Thanks!

They are Xenon builbs i assume?

I would say try to replace the bulb. I was experiencing the same thing. Turns out the gas in the bulb was no good.

I replaced the bulb and it looked the same. Luckily my coworkers were helping me change the bulb and one of them noticed that the lamp is actually angled down significantly which caused the bulb to look not as bright at the same level.

So now i just need to adjust the lamp angle. I *think* I found the access hole under a rubber stopper under the hood. Can anyone confirm this before I start messing around?
