    Headlights dimming randomly?

    Hello guys - been away awhile but know I can count on everyone here for some thoughts....

    My headlights when on low beam appear to dim from time to time, they do not go off, just dim down and then come back to normal brightness - Could this just be the first sign of bulbs going bad or any other ideas?
