I asked this a while back and the answer is no they don't light up. Also those A/C go out routinely.

What are the differences in the WK1 model years? When looking to make a purchase, are some years more desirable than others? tia

Yes there are. But should you? You should also change your valve springs, retainers, pushrods. It's just added piece of mind and safety.
