Countryfit, they do look nice. I don't think you are going to find this style replacement in glass. The weight alone I think would be an issue as well as cost to manufacture. the other thing to consider would be rock strikes on the front of a vehicle. Don't think they would live very long with a basically flat front. One or two stone strikes and they would be done for. Just my thoughts.

Those flat-lenses are susceptible to flying rock, alright. I put new plastic on my coach about 3 years ago, and the driver's side has a pretty good three-legged crack, that had to be a rock.

If you put the Aussie/glass upgrade in, you might want to protect your investment. A few years ago I broke down and bought a "toy" car I had been lusting for for thirty years, a 1976 Citroen CX GTi. That car has BIG, glass lensed headlights, which almost nobody stocks, and in 2009, when I priced them on a whim, they were $580 apiece, out of Germany, with air freight charges for good measure. I remarked on this to a member of the local Citroen Club, and he put me onto Lamin-X protective film. Surprisingly thick, but clear as glass. Protects against all but the biggest rocks, and on plastic lenses, shields from UV that cause the clouding and crazing.

!st, thanks for the link to the lens cover material. Great way to protect our expensive lenses. Now, about your Citroen. Hydraulic suspension? IS this model a turbo or other exotic motor? Must be really rare as you were looking for some time. I am familiar with the Citroen ds SERIES AND THE SM V6 Masarati powered "james Bond car.The French way! Thanks for THEinfo!

Hi, Bob

Yeah, the CX has the hydropneumatic suspension, the same as the DS, the SM, the GSA. No turbo, but the larger non-turbo engine. (2.5 Liter) I lived in Africa for a couple years in the 70's, and bought a DS-21 there. Man, what a smooth ride. And in Africa, that's a difference you notice!

After I came back to the States, I sort of looked for an SM, but they are pretty few and far between, too. Finally I broke down and spent way more than it was worth, and bought a CX from a French pastry chef who taught at a culinary school just outside Detroit. He just had a routine of importing one French classic every two years, right on their 25th birthday. That's the magic age where all DOT and EPA requirements are waived. Flew to Detroit, and drove it home to Portland, OR.

I drove it as pretty nearly a daily driver for four years, but I had a really short commute. Then I changed jobs and had to drive further. Since then I've just run it out to shows with French car, sometimes more broadly, Italian and French themes. Right now it's halfway sanded down for a repaint. Just one of my projects not making much progress this winter!

And, yes, you can drive them with only three wheels, so long as the missing one is off at the back.
