Hello welcome to just answer I'm am master tech and I will be able to assist you ,

can you tell me if the head light lens are cloudy and dull looking or crystal clear ?

Clear with a little oxidation inside lens around bulbs

When driving at night there is very little light shining on street to illuminate lane lines, curbs etc.
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok and the beam it's self how is it pointing ( low or about center for max light view ) ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think high. The dealership guys said center.I asked them if they might need to be adjusted but said they said no
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok personally I would pull in front of the garage and park about 3-4 feet away and turn on the lights and see if they are level and see how high the beam is

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

I can look for some headlight aiming info that will allow you to adjust these to suit your driving needs

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok it's 25 feet but we use a shorter distance and have good results.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thanks. That is a good suggestion. Would adjusting be diy?
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it did open and looks easy enough! Thanks for your help.
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok.

I would check the aim and just make sure the lens are crystal clear. we do so many head light restorations at my work for these issues, that was my reason for asking in the first contact.
