Question Facelift or Pre-Facelift?

Ok, so heres the deal....One of my headlights (inner chrome housing low beam) melted because somehow the light bulb got loose and the heat melted it. So i've been looking around for some headlights right, but everyone keeps asking me if the car is faclifted or prefacelift? What's the difference? I drive a 2002 325i Sedan. Anyone enlighten me on this please.

The difference is entirely in the front turn signal housings... if the angle upwards its facelifted if they angle downwards its prefacelifted (as the facelift came in all the 2002 and up models)
