Lightbulb Anyone thinking about putting pre-2002 tail lights on '02 sedans?

I have a 2001 myself. While I think the new 02 frontend is fine in its own right, I feel the sedan tail lights were changed just for the sake of changing. In daylight, the yellow band bisects the red area on the light cluster; at night, there is a gap between the running light on the rear fender and the now-lit running light on the trunk lid (I think they turned on the bulb on the trunk lid for nighttime because the 2002 red running light on the fender was smaller than the 2001 light). Both attributes are, in my eyes, aesthetically less pleasing.

If I had a 2002 and were thinking of getting the clears, I would order the 2001 model lights for both the fender and the trunk lid units.
