I got my drivers side headlamp housing replaced at the dealer (condensation). When driving at night I noticed the drivers side was aimed very low and the light seemed very concentrated (like a beam). I went back to the dealer today and they said they aligned it again. Tonight when I drove it, the drivers side was not low anymore but it looks like a flashlight beam compared to the passenger side. I also noticed when I go over bumps (like the raised reflectors on the road) the drivers side light on the road shakes as if the bulb was loose. When I had the car parked in the driveway with the headlights aimed at the garage door, I could lightly hit the drivers side housing with my hand and you could see the light on the garage shake. It doesn't shake when I do the same on the passenger side. I plan on bringing it back again tomorrow. See pics..

Honestly sounds like a broken tab my CTS did that whole “shaking while driving” in turn I have a 2015 Buick non-hid at the moment. Definitely following though would love to hear what the dealership has in store to tell you this time

They ordered another housing. After waiting a week, when they went to install it there was a broken tab on that housing. After waiting another week for the part they said its in. Going tomorrow to have it installed.

Any answer concerning the difference in strength of both lights. One being like a beam the other well not?
