Dim projector headlights o.O

Hi! I got my BMW a few months ago and I've been noticing how dim the headlights are. The car is a 2003 325i. What seems odd to me is that the car has HID projectors. Is it possible that the car just has cheap bulbs, or maybe there is something wrong with the ballast? I'm thinking of replacing the bulbs with some 8000k bulbs and see if there is a difference. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

More then likely, the bulbs are just on there way out. I would order a new set and swap them out.
