Hey. I have a 2009 kia sorento LX. My low beam headlights light up nice and bright but doesn`t shine very far at all. Can only see about 50 feet or so on low beams. So I brought it in to see if they needed adjusting. They said they were fine. So I thought about replacing the bulbs to a sylvania brand. Ive looked everywhere in stores and they no longer carry that model which is H11B. I dont want to get the HID headlight kit. What do I do??

First thing to figure out, is why they are dimmer than they used to be.
Is the plastic housing hazed over? This will dramatically reduce the light output.

Sometimes just changing the bulbs will make a huge difference. They get dimmer over time, but usually burn out long before they have a noticeable difference in output.

If you have the driving lights did the switch get turned to the off position? Had one of those burn out and that made a huge difference.
