Default Spottin a non-SSEi SC Bonnie

Is there a way to spot if a Bonnevile is/might be equiped with the supercharger if its not an SSEi other than pop the hood?

I actually knew that
I was looking for something more like: "If the Aux lights are close in to the license plate then it might, if they're far apart then no"

Something I can look for as I drive by. When I go visit my stepson wioth my wife I pass about 8 smalltime dealers and most of them have Bonne'*. I just wondered if there was a way to spot'em from a driveby

True. The SLE had the far apart lights from 93-95. They didn't get the close together lights until the new fascia in 96.
