Model 3 fog lights different on early vs new builds

I noticed some model 3s have different looking fog lights. I don't know if maybe older builds vs new is the difference? Or are they the same? Here's a picture of mine.

Huh? My 3 was a June 12 order date and looks just like yours. Maybe some aftermarket parts you're seeing. A lot of us like to put our personal touches on ASAP.
And from what I can tell, nice 3! I do love the way the fog lights give out such a wide spread. Makes it super easy to find the lines in the morning fog.
 
Did you find the answer to this?

I did - unfortunately Tesla was pretty rude about it :/

They explained that it is "technically part of the fog light package" (even though it is clearly not and I could prove it is part of the parking light cluster" and they told me I was not allowed to add items from the premium interior onto my SR+. I even offered to pay for the install + labor, but no cigar. Pretty dumb and petty when you consider how much these cars cost. Even older SR+ models (with LED fog lights in the window sticker) are software disabled.

Not to side with Tesla but although that light is for parking and control by that but the whole housing is considered fog light package. I see how Tesla work is they do not want to change anything that’s not part of the original package. By manually install it for you meaning they have to manually config the software for it then what happen when you update the software and want warranty for it, I believe it would be a mess for them.
