Erm, late 99' I think. Upgraded interiors. New nose. New bumpers front and rear. I think. We drive the facelift with rear spoiler etc. Looks a bit sharper than old but nothing radical.

LHD markets got new(ish) fascia. UK and Ireland got stuck with old 95 version.

My facelift 145QV arrived August 1999. The UK brochure was printed April 1999, so you could potentially order one anytime from then on. (Well, say May to be safe).
Main differences were (as said above) cosmetic inside and outside. Also, I think this is when the 2.0 went to 155bhp (plastic cam covers), but IMO it is not as "sweet" an engine as the earlier 150bhp model, and does not feel any quicker on the road.
