why? is it faded.

Try using rubbing compound on your stock headlights to make them look better. Too much flash makes the car lose its charm.

True, but he has plonked in Xenons into those headlamps already. I doubt if Taiwanese headlamp units will make them look any worse.

They are not faded but the light emitted from them is not adequate compared to modern day clearlamps. I normaly drive very fast so at night these light severly restrict visibility.
