Almost (had) twins...

When I took the 99 M Rdstr in for Inspection II, this is the loaner vehicle I received.
It was interesting to compare the Sport Package against the non sport. Both are 4.4s and are otherwise similarly equipped.
Ours is on the right (with the slightly cleaner wheels).
Has anybody else noted the difference in parking light color between the 01 & 02 models?
In the end, I'm glad I got the Sport Package. The difference in the ride is minimal, and still smoother than either M Rdstr on the cobblestones!

Actually, the clears are part of the sport package. Year is irrelevant.
