Not a lot changed in that time. (Ok, the more I think, the more has changed!)
The interior will be different, including door trims, dashboard, instruments etc.
The exterior is pretty much the same except for the different grills,tail lights, bumpers and trim (perhaps the rear panel is different?), glass may be tinted on the later car but not on the earlier one.
Mechanically they are identical, except that the later car will probably have a 105bhp engine because of different cams + housings, perhaps electronic ignition on the new car, but points on the old. Suspension and brakes are the same, and ratios apart, the gearbox should be the same.
Is that it, or have I forgotten something?
