About Headlight Glasss
The Alfa Romeo headlight glass is a crucial part of the headlight assembly. Headlights are external lights, contained in either a metal or plastic housing, that are fixed to either side of the car at the front of the car. The headlight glass makes up the lens of the headlight, forming a protective covering, which fits over and forms the outer surface of the headlight.
The primary function of the headlight glass is to protect the bulbs that make up the headlight. The bulbs in the headlight assembly are fragile and can get damaged if exposed to the weather, which can cause the bulbs to fail.
The Alfa Romeo headlight glass ensures that the headlight is completely protected from the elements and also offers protection to the bulbs from minor knocks and scrapes. The Alfa Romeo headlight glass also helps to reduce the glare produced from the headlights, which helps oncoming traffic.
If the headlight glass is broken, smashed, cracked or is damaged in some other way and not fitting securely over the bulbs in the headlight assembly, you run the risk of water seeping in and exposing the bulbs to bumps and knocks which can lead to broken or short-circuited headlight bulbs. It's important, therefore, to replace the appropriate headlight glass when damaged to avoid damage to the bulbs. Replacing the broken glass in the driver's side headlight with the Alfa Romeo headlight glass will ensure you get a part that fits securely to your car's headlight assembly.
Alfa Romeo trivia
- The first-ever F1 driver’s championship happened in 1950, and it was won by Giuseppe Farina thanks to the lightning-quick Alfa Romeo he was in. A history of Grand Prix racing served Alfa Romeo well for that first Formula 1 race, but they stopped being involved in the competition back in 1988 until making a return in 2019.
- In 1933, the Italian government ‘acquired’ Alfa Romeo, and they kept their hold on it until 1986. That’s when Fiat bought the company and the government had no choice but to let it go.
- The lighter designs of Alfa Romeos has seen the company get a lot of racing success. They have performed exceptionally well at Le Mans, the Mille Miglia, and the Vanderbilt Cup. Perhaps their personal favourite victory was the 1923 win at the Targa Florio, a famously challenging competition.
- The Italian Job was famous for its use of the Mini Cooper, but the police in the film might very well have beaten Michael Caine on the flat with their Alfa Giulia Supers.
- US President John F. Kennedy was a big fan of the Alfa Romeo, and would often be seen racing on Washington streets in his Alfa Romeo Giuletta Spider.
