Low beam headlights dim

During day time the lights have normal brightness. At night when I turn lights on the low beams are barely visible. Ideas?

I doubt there is a problem but you could change the bulbs out. Low beams these days have a very sharp cut off which makes the light shine low down. If in doubt have the head lights adjusted.
