My stock Xenons are DIM...proof!

I had the suspicion that my factory Xenons were dim ever since I bought the car 2 weeks ago. I am fairly sure the headlight bulbs were never changed. There's no knowing how many times the lights have turned on/off with the automatic headlights, decreasing light output.

My wife's civic with 6-month old 5000k ebay HIDs, that I installed, is much brighter!
The 2 pictures below are for comparison.

I will be ordering new phillips 85122+ bulbs and update on the results.
