    N00B Seeking Advice - Choosing between SC2 Model Years 00 vs 02

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm shopping for a N00B SC2 and I would like to get some advice in choosing between model years.

    I am deciding between 99-00 & 01-02

    I really prefer the more angular side lines of the 01-02

    I kinda like the headlights better too, depending on the day. So I guess in reality I am 90% indifferent to the way the headlight configuration looks.

    So what I want to know is about how well the different headlight configurations work in real life.

    Is there a functional difference between the two configurations?
    Or is it purely cosmetic?

    Does one style provide better illumination than the other?
    Do the late model headlights, with their upward exposure, cause more glare in foggy conditions? (I will be driving in San Francisco,where fog is an everyday occurrence)

    Which model has a lower coefficient of drag? (I want to tweak it for fuel economy)
