projector headlights?

i seem to see almost every year R32 GT-R with and without the projector low beams. it may be a stupid question, but can someone tell me what determines which cars have the projectors and which don't? i don't think it's a model year thing...

found it!

there are 3 types of headlights for the R32 GTR; they are as follows:

N1= N1 spec GTRs
projector "bugeye" 1- came in older model R32s
projector "bugeye" 2- came in newer model R32s

bug type older model takes an H3C bulb
newer model r32's take H1/H4 bulbs

you're the man. so basically, the non-bugeyes are all N1's?

correct.

and i believe that the non-projector types are N1s because they actually throw more light, as the N1 spec GTR is for down-and-dirty racing conditions only. she has no air conditioner, no rear glass wiper, bigger brakes (yikes, i think), and a few other things to beef her up. oh yes, the N1s had the Nismo aero kit i'm nearly certain. it's a cool machine, but i'd rather have the a/c and rear wiper. just my preference. my R32 has an N1 rear "boot lid." but the car itself is standard GTR.
