Question TailLight Turn Signal Lens: Orange or Clear w/Orange Bulb?

My little 2001 PT Limited needed some new taillights. So I first just order the right taillight assembly since it was obviously cracked. The broken one on the car has the orange lens over the rear turn signals. And that's what I thought I bought online.

But when it arrived, it had a clear lens over the signal with an orange bulb inside. At first I was kind of miffed but I kind of liked the way it looked. And by the time the taillight arrived, I had already discovered that the left assembly was cracked too. So I took the part number off of the box that the right taillight came it and ordered a left one just like it but from a different vendor. Now I have two with the clear lenses.

What's the deal with these. Which PT's are supposed to have the clear lenses and which ones are supposed to have the oranges ones? And does it make any difference at all?

'01 thru '05 PTs had amber turn signal lenses. '06 Cruisers on had clear lenses & amber bulbs.
Can I ask what you paid & where you got them?, 'cause I need new lenses....

Quick, is right. the problem is you will need to make the plugs fit. they are supposed to be slightly different.

Right c'here:

CHRYSLER PT CRUISER LEFT TAIL LIGHT 06-09 NEW : Amazon.com : Automotive

You may be able to get them cheaper by the pair. Eagle Eye is a discount brand but well respected and many of their lights are made in the US.

As you will notice, this one on Amazon says it is for later model PT's. But the first one I bought came off of eBay and was supposed to be correct from my 2001.
