Boxster Headlights

Hi, looking for a set of headlight assembly for my 1998 boxster. Will a newer car (headlight assembly) like a 2000 or 2002 fit?

Haven't checked for a Boxster but wifey was talking about having the dealer polish her 02 civic lights, again, for another 89 bucks.
I found replacement headlight assemblies several places and then checked Amazon for grins and giggles. They were less than half the price of anyone else - 84.00 for the pair, with free shipping. I'll gladly install the new ones for her for the $5.00 diff.

THese fit 2002 - new Hella replacements:

I bought Litronics this Spring and now have a set of clear (2003 and after style) halogen headlights for sale that are in very good condition (they were only used for 2 short Minnesota summers). I plan to list them on eBay soon, but I'd sell them for $700 plus shipping on this forum. They will be shipped in the OEM boxes that they came in when I bought them.
I chose to buy this set new because I did not want to buy a set that looked 'sandblasted' or that were yellowing like many used lights out there, and this price is discounted from what I paid. I have not seen many CLEAR halogen sets out there (mostly used Litronics or the old orange style on eBay, and Litronics prices have gone up for a nice set). I am sure someone could buy a cheaper set, but they won't look as good as these.
I am open to offers, but this price is realistic based on research (eBay, etc.).
These lights will fit any Boxster from 1997 to 2004.
More pics available on request.
Thanks.
