    Dim headlights

    OEM self-leveling headlights on my '04 ZHP are a bit dim. Any suggestions?

    You most likely have burnt out reflector bowls. There are many threads on this topic that you can find doing a search.

    Yes, 2004 sedan ZHP. Looking for a complete plug and play solution. Is there a service besides Lightwerkz where I can send in my headlights and have the retrofit done and have them shipped back to me?

    Just note that the issue will occur again with this option, though it will probably take a long time, depending on how often and how long you use your lights.
    It did take 8-13 years for it to happen, after all...

    Yes, looks like a good option, but I was looking for a place where I can send in my headlight units to have it all done there and then shipped back.

    Contact the guy in the links above (Clemsone46).
    He told me if you ship your headlights to him he can change everything for an additional price and time.

    I'm going to have to wait till summer to do mine as My car is my only car right now.

    Any place local in the Los Angeles area who can provide the retrofit? Looking to just take my car there if possible for the shop to carry out the retrofit for the burnt bowls.

    What about buying a used set of AL Automotive headlights? That will be a permanent fix and the lights are a direct replacement.
