The early (2002 to 2006) rear cluster lamp units were tinted red, while later 2006 to 2009 units had a more modern 'crystal' design but the size and mountings are the same for both.

If you are looking for a replacement rear cluster and its difficult to find a decent early example, consider changing to a pair of the new style rear clusters (eBay) that fit the old car and are easier to source :?:

Headlamp units become frosted or damaged by water ingress that upset the internal levelling motor system. Replacements are easy to come by and not too bad to fit. Have a look here for new Citroen C3 Headlight units that are cheaper than the main dealer price :o
