    My dear Camry has about 5 light bulbs in barrels to make the headlights look like some mishappen gattling gun. How the heck does the Lexus pull off one bulb+ turning lights? And what do those lens thingys do if they don't move into corners? I thought that was the hype about projecting lights. Sleek anyway, not the bulky mess of camrys gone by, (I think that either can be awesome though...)

    Modern cars have much more regulatory leeway in headlight design than the bad old days of two designs of sealed beams required by law.

    That said, far too many newer cars have terrible headlights, with really poor low beam performance, and usually pretty bad high beams as well. Most Ford and Lincoln lights are substandard, and lots of imports have the same issues. It's an area that needs automaker attention for reasons other than styling

    Adaptive lights are really worth it - it's the one thing that will both improve performance and reduce glare to oncoming drivers.
