Headlight issue. need to know where to start looking

A few weeks ago, my Xenon bulbs on my 330 driver side was flickering and sometimes would not work. SO I dedcided to replace both bulbs, the passenger side and the driver side. It worked fine for 2 days then noticed that the driver side is a little brighter than the passenger side. Where do I need to start to try to look for what the problem is? Thanks
