Ha!  (sorry to laugh)  This sounds familiar.  Oh so familiar.

All the 5k's have these lights.  And I think most of use listers would 
definitely notice.

I have a broken left taillight on my 4ksq, and bought a replacement 
from another lister.  I put it in and was admiring it, and then it kinda 
hit me.  WTF is this groove in the middle?!  The lister took it back 
and returned my check.  And he had taken it off of a 4k!

I never noticed the groove on those cars until I saw it right next to 
the rest of my taillights.  Now I see it every time I look at a 5k.

I still have a broken taillight...  See if you can find someone with two, 
and i'll buy the other one!

Good luck,

 (ah, this list is so cool.  i really feel like i belong to something...)
