Default Door (puddle) lights

I was browsing Bonnevilles for sale on eBay recently and came across several pictures where the reflectors in the doors were NOT just reflectors, they were white as opposed to red and were illuminated. I thought perhaps this was a SSEi thing and then came across SEs with the same thing. These were 2000-2005 models (I know the older ones, 96-99 etc have them).

This is pretty odd to me..I tried to search it but found nothing on the forum about it. Its almost as if certain cars got door lights and others didnt. OR maybe it was a lighting package of some kind? But why wouldnt all SSEis have it? I dunno...if anyone could shed light on it it'd be cool to know.

I believe only the 2000 had them. The item was removed in 2001 to save money. There is an excellent write up on installing them in the 2K+ Forum

thats ridiculous. I figured it was some kind of stupid change like that. It never made sense to me that my car woud have two reflectors like that...the one looks soo much like a light. How much money did they really save by doing that? Thats ridiculous on a car that costs as much as the Bonneville..****, waaay lower end GM cars even have them.

Anyways, thanks for the info.
