Correct.
I have another previously not offered set in excellent condition (8 1/2 to 9 out of 10).
Lenses, reflectors, and housing all marked Bosch. Both lights with vacuum pods, and pretty close in quality to the lights originally offered in this thread.
A set of this quality still with all Bosch markings has likely for years been sitting on a shelf somewhere, before being installed for a limited time.
The only minus is the missing / broken center bottom tab (see pic 1) on the R = passenger light.
Otherwise all tabs are intact / undamaged, nothing else is broken, zero cracks, chips, with excellent reflectors and lenses.
The first pic shows on top row the sale pending set (as does top of pic 2) with Indy member (not yet finalized).

The lower pictured set is the other mentioned with broken center tab on R (passenger) light.
I am asking $300 + shipping costs from L.A.

Correct me if I am wrong, but as far as I know the center is not utilized with a wiper set up.
The two outer tabs connect to wiper motor, and the wiper drive through the grommet of the under light valence provides stability. The center tab is used with a non wiper set up.

I was right.
With wiper set up the center tab on the bottom is not used.

With non wiper set up, only the bottom center tab is used.
