You would think an incremental change over time without a refresh or new model could be made to make the headlights "fair" or better. Years of poor headlights is not very good publicity for a company interested in safety.

you're expecting a lot from a company that cant make a DRL headlight not burn out from 2016-current when the 2013-2015 model never had that issue.

The model s headlights are horrible, was a bit surprised they didn’t take the refresh as an opportunity to update the headlights. Maybe it’s in the cards in a few months since the new 3/Y are shipping with the matrix headlight hardware just not implemented in the software yet.

I actually just picked up my MS20 from the service center to address the headlights. They were too low IMO so they adjusted them up a smidge. A drastic improvement.

The 2016+ headlights are indeed garbage. That said, the IIHS page linked by OP clearly isn’t a test of the impending refresh since those cars don’t seem to exist yet.
