No dude, the halogen 986 headlights. The inner fluted lens is plastic, and it overheats and of course turns yellow and forms a hole and twists. No, the round lens for a projector has gotta be glass, they all are. Or maybe some type of new super plastic.

Thank the damn government that the only plastic we can make headlights out of turns yellow with age and oxygen. There are millions of kinds of plastics in the world, but a new million dollar bugatti would end up the same as an old Geo. Actually itd be worse because an old Geo has glass headlights, hehe. You know in the land of the Honda CRX, there are guys hunting down original headlights with the fluted lens over projector retrofits because glass doesnt yellow.
