I have a 2003 turbo s and noticed I don't have the side marker lights above the front fenders. Every other car like mine has them and I can't find one without them! Is this weird? Did the original owner request NOT to have them put on? Can you do that?

Nah, your car is normal ;)

Bugs have either sidemarkers or blinkers in the mirrors.

Now, this is just what I've noticed, so if there's some bizarro crossover model that has both, I don't want to get flak for it.. ;)

No, you're correct, it's either or, and seeing a pic of his red S he's got blinkers in the mirrors.

Now me, I've got a 2001, so blinkers above the fenders/below the mirrors. But I also have blinkers in the mirrors I've got sitting in a shelf, so when I finally find time to install the suckers, there's your bizarro crossover model. :D

The change happened between 2002 and 2003 MY's. My 2002 has side markers, our former 2003 had mirror blinkers, as does our current 2005. Now, my car looks "old"..... :eek:

i believe the turn signal mirrors were found on 2003.5 turbo s's. my "early" 2003 has the old style...

Yup. A 2003.5 model year change. Everything pre convertible (which came out in 2003.5) has the blinkers on the sides and not the mirrors. Nice "S" BTW. :p
