Yes, different.  The (now famous) 20V page has several pictures of both styles,
see http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/Speedway/3229/pictures.htm

The US fogs are actually below the bumper (the euros are in the bumper) meaning that they are exposed to more flying
gravel and thus more prone to damage.
So of course they don't have replaceable lenses, that would make too much sense.
