Easier to look at the ass, I always do. The rear turn indicators' "glass" went from amber to clear. The rear window washer nozzle moved from left to right. At the front, there is a difference in the grille, where the new version has thicker bars (maybe one less as well) and a "cleaner", more defined, look to it.when i'm looking at cars in the street, do the 5-speed auto cars have a different front ie facelift
or was that later?
New style headlights came a couple of years later, afaik. Early ones had the high under and the low on top, while the new ones (7/2004?) have the hi and lo side by side.The headlights are the biggest giveaway for me - the old has the high/low beams in the same reflector, the facelift has them in separate reflectors in the same housing.
