    Great video and good work. The same can be done with toothpaste and a cloth.

    Consumers should launch class action lawsuits against the manufacturers that allowed these materials to be used. Did they think the Sun was going to go out, and their materials would not fail? Plastic headlamp covers that are not UV resistant is the stupidest idea I have seen in a while.

    i cannot imagine that glass would cost that much more?

    They make throw away glass drink bottles for beer etc so the cost would be quite low. I don't think the weight would matter much either.

    Please bring back glass headlights .

    I completely agree, I would much rather deal with the brittleness of glass than have to clear up the covers every few months.
