dim bulb

on our way home from watching the badger game tonight, my brother informed me that i should replace my car’s headlights. i asked him why, and he asked me when was the last time i replaced them. i told him never, and he said “that’s why.” so then i argued that they’re not burned out, so obviously they still work, so why would i replace them?

am i the only person on earth who didn’t know that headlights dim over time, even if they haven’t burned out? i still think andy was pulling my leg.

i’m a little disappointed in my own self-sufficiency that this was such an ah-ha moment for me.

    Halogen headlights do dim over time. The lens covers also start to oxidize and get yellow. You also rarely wash your car, that doesn’t help the quality of the luminance.

    I can show you how to replace them. It’s easy peasy…
