Yep, an 03. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that on 03 they started using gray headlight housings. I could be wrong though.

Anywho, You'll love the handling on your car, it's addictive and very fun to drive. Keep an eye on your engine and lets hope that those valve seats don't drop anytime soon.

At some point then graffix's car must have either been in a wreck or someone decided to change the lights to the chrome ones

There is a good chance the trunk has been changed out. But oh well sounds like you got a good deal. I wish ya luck on the engine. I baby mine and give it more than regular maintance and its been doing good for me. I think I have one of the highest milage spi's on the site.

maybe they still had some left over parts they had to use up before the changeover.
