I have purchased one and it really does make a difference, even with the standard bulbs.

Very straightforward installation and you can really see how small the oem wiring is.

First of all the Subaru headlight system is a common positive, switched ground system. There are no direct "grounds", the low and high beam are switched to ground through the headlight switch to turn them on.
If one of your lights is dim the most likely cause is a blown headlight fuse on that side. A blown fuse will cause the bulb to pull power through the filaments from the other side and light up dimly.
