Series 1 was the original replacement for the 33. In the UK it had 1.6 and 1.7ltr 16v Boxer engines. I think there was also a 1.3 on the Continent.
Series 2 ("Gamma" in AR speaks) phased out the Boxer engines and introduced the Twin-Spark engines. It came with a 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0ltr 16v donkey.. again, in Europe and elsewhere there was also a 1.4.
The "Facelift" version (in case that's the one you mean) had re-styled bumpers and front grille and introduced emissions improved versions of the same engines. The bumpers were more curved and largely painted, instead of having the black unpainted section. The grille had less slats in it.
In Europe the facelift also introduced a new dashboard with better materals and round air vents like the GTV, rather than the slatted vents. However, they didn't introduce the new dash' in the UK as it was quite an expensive bit of work and presumably not worth the effort for the small number of RHD sales. .. which is a pity as arguably the interior quality was probably the 145/6's weakest area.
No bullets for Chaingun..
