They stopped round headlights when they went from Gen1 to Gen2 (82 and up are square)
The hatchback Gen1 ones are round too.
I'm not sure about the tranny, I think they started putting them in 1981 when they switched to the EA81 engine.

your welcome.

Hatches had round headlights on the DL or standard series till at least 87. Gone by 89.

I think the 4 speeds left in 85

I thought Brats had the large rectangular and dual small rectangular only! I don't recall seeing a gen2 Brat with round lights.

Anyone else?
Glenn,
82 Hatch, transforming no lights yet.:temper:
01 Forester, polygon lights?

Yep - that would be a STD (lower model than the DL even) grill on Gen 2's - they had 2 sealed dual beam's that were round - DL's had 2 sealed dual beam square's, and GL's had the 4 square single beams sealed lights. And of course as stated - all Gen 1's.

and for the Gen1's(77.5 and up), DL's had the single large round headlights, and the GL's had the dual round 4.75" rounds.

77 and earlier just had the single large rounds on each side.
