Does anyone find that the OEM headlights don't provide enough illumination? I'm thinking it's because the '00 Outback is higher than my previous cars (Accord, Volvo 240) and the light aims lower.

I read some of the other post regarding headlights and I noticed some people replaced theirs with brighter bulbs, is that recommended?

If you intend to buy aftermark bulbs (higher wattage or not) I reccommend you look at Midnightmoose their prices, selection, quality and customer service are great.

P3, my 03 Outback's head lamps were adjusted from the factory way too low. I had the same complaint you are referring to. I believe they are set as if you had a full load of people and gear in the car. I adjusted mine to the proper height with 2 people on board and the difference is truly amazing. You may want to give this a try before spending money on new lamps.
Which if you decide to do have a look at Sylvania (Osram) Silver Stars or better yet Ultra Vision.
Link to their site
Hope this helps

Hey EOppegaard I did read those threads, but no one had a similar issue, expect for Skip, in this thread.

BTW Skip did you adjust your lamps yourself
