Yes; also the same units can be found on the second-generation Pontiac Trans Sport and Chevy Lumina minivans through about 1997 (i.e. not the original paint-scraper nose but the rounded-off version that came later. Note that the Olds Silhouette minivans kept their original nose and never used the Bonneville headlamps.)

The side marker lamps are unique to Bonnevilles; the minivan ones look similar but are not the same.

(I have a matched set of a white Bonneville SSEi and white Trans Sport, and yes, it did look cool when we drove our little convoy out of the Pontiac dealer that day... )

The only difference is that the 92'* had the word "PONTIAC" on the driver'* side head lamp while the other years did not!

Speaking of the side markers, on my '93 it sure looks like the clear upper half with the chrome innards was originally intended to be an optional cornering lamp, like the previous Bonneville series had.

Would love to see if I could shoehorn an 1156 bulb in there sometime. Maybe I'll get another pair of side markers from a junkyard sometime and try a little creative surgery on them...
