I just bought a rear lens for the astra only to discover it's much darker than my original WTF. :thumbdown
were there different tints on different years ?
also the original has a foam seal where as the new one has a rubber tube, both say 10-11-91 on them.

the phase ones were lighter than the phase twos, phase twos had some tint addedd to them. pretty sure the gsi ones are tinted also.

as above.

the phase 2 were darker in general and look like there split in half, with the lower half slightly darker than the top

phase 1 were quite light except for the gsi which were dark all over
