Got my Hella reverse light bezel and glass all cleaned up. There are a lot of variations on the lens markings and bezels. Bosch even made some of these in the exact same shape, but Bosch was not the supplier of reverse lights to PORSCHE- it was Hella. The 62548 markings should be as shown below. Also, there are some lens out there with more markings on the lens. The additional markings were because of code requirements in later years. During the 356 era, there were no such markings. You will see 356 cars with the reverse light lens having these additional markings but the lens likely came off a Volkswagen or BMW. Use of this shape lens was used in those cars after during and after 356 production.
