But GM is stopped making these headlights,
I didn't need a complete headlight anyway, my car car has only run 39000 km (24.000 miles), the headlights are still cristall clear,
The only thing black rubber is getting lose on the underside,
Am i the only one with this problem ?, it seems like, a more common problem.

Maybe an aftermarket company that makes headlights for our cars would be willing to sell the rubber trim separately. In my case, the trim on mine when I got my car was pretty worn and there were gaps that would allow my headlights to fill up with water when it rained. I've got pictures posted somewhere around here. I'd get up to 1/2" of water in there. So, I just replaced them. They weren't stock headlights when I got the car though.

I have a 2001 Camaro with European specs, see picture above (the blue sticker on the headlight)
because of the different regulation, Chevrolet made different headlights for Europe, and i am not allowed to put "American" headlights, in my Camaro.
- The taillight is in the headlight (see green arrow)
- The headlights do have a motor on the backside, do adjust electical the hight of the beam (see blue arrow)
- The beam of light is different, the car gets once a year an inspection, and they check this every year
It is not a big thing, i can always glue the black rubber back on (like the factory did), i only preferred some new rubber,

Frankly I don't worry about it. Aftermarket factory looking headlights aren't that expensive, they are all over the internet, but I'm not replacing what are otherwise perfectly good working headlights every 3-4 years because the rubber doesn't stick around.
If the aftermarket stuff on the internet is still too pricey for you, and you are ambitious, I'm sure you could find a spool of hollow thin wall weatherstripping somewhere on the internet, cut to length and glue it on with weatherstrip adhesive (that's how the originals are attached).
I've thought about this route myself, but it will have to wait until I'm completely bored out of my mind and have nothing else to do.

Actually I just looked at your picture, appears your rubber is still in one piece. I would just get some black 3M weather strip adhesive and glue that back on, use a little tape to hold it still. That stuff sets up quickly so work fast.
You're lucky it isn't falling off in chunks like mine,,,catch it now while you can.
