the only difference i see between the three lamps sitting in my lap at thye moment (mfg dates 5/00, 09/01 and 5/01) and the GXP are the clips one the end are plasitc instead of the shitty ball&socket ones and the sduster is plastic on the GXP, and metal on my older ones....

edit: and i guess the shades too

I'm not seeing any difference in the way they mount to the bucket 00-05. It seems the horizontal adjusters are a little different on the 00-01 from the 02-05 & maybe some other miniscule differences. Not sure about clips.

the ball and socket style clips are different, the 00-early04 lights have the ball that clip in on the end of the light, and the GXP has a plastic clip on the end of the light.

still not sure about the late 04 non-GXP production cars
