OEM HID/ Ballast VS. Aftermarket

OEM HID/ Ballast VS. Aftermarket

just wondering what could affect the brightness of head lights? Both my cars are equipped with factory hid/ ballast set ups, they just seem dim compared to other cars with oem equipped hids. ie when I drive next to them I can clearly see my headlights are way dimmer.

would older oem ballast/ bulbs produce less light?

should I try aftermarket ballast + hid combo? btw I do have experience with aftermarket hid kits, but I've only used them on none hid equipped cars and they are bright as hell so I dunno what difference there would be on oem equipped cars.

school me
