Where Have All The Glass Headlights Gone?

Are there any cars on sale today that still have them?

I have to assume it has something to do with pedestrian safety, or possibly to shave 5 pounds from the overall weight of a vehicle. Is it too lofty a claim to say that automotive build quality went down around the same time they stopped fitting glass headlights? Just a thought to ponder…


To me, Mercedes always seemed to have the best glass lenses - my favorites are from the W116 Mercedes. What are your favorite glass headlights?
