At what point did the clear front lenses become standard on the 996? Some pre-facelift car seem to have them and some don't. Confused

Anyone know?

I thought it was only with facelift. Maybe the pre-facelift cars owners have replaced them?

Daz is correct. You sometimes see 98 cars reffered to as 99 spec, which includes clear lenses.

Well for sure all facelift cars do have them - my 2001 has them too, wondered if it was standard or as you say F1 if people have replaced them?
