Default SSEi Tailight housing ?

Some idiot bumped my car (99 SSEi) in a parking lot and broke the taillght housing. (fender mounted housing not the truck lid piece)
Does anybody know if the tailight housing for a SSEi is different then for a SE ?
This part is $226.00 at the dealer, so I am thinking maybe a junkyard part is in order.
However, if it requires a SSEi, it may be hard to come by.

Thanks...

$226??? wow. If you can't find it in a local yard check the some of the internet junkyard lists. I think autoparts.com or something like that...someone that knows please chime in.

I purchased one on e-bay the other day for $45 plus shipping. From the pics it looks like it has the black lines in lens. I guess I will find out for sure when it shows up.

I found many web sites which sold headlights, side marker lights, and fog lights but no tail lights coulds be found. Very strange. It seems to be a item that'* fairly hard to come by.
