" rear light, and front lights" - theres a few more differences:
facelift differences include:
new shape wing-mirrors (subtle)
new grille - (new badge only)
new interior equipment (new DIS, new climate, new switches, new clocks, new illumination, new gearknob, different air-vents)) - new center console, not new DIS (well not in my car)
new wings (to accomodate new headlights)
new alloy options
ESP added - was always an option and was introduced as standard before the facelift IMO, followed by who needs it in a quattro...
225PS engine added
AVS possible - was option before my car had the choice and was built late 99.

I'm not sure I would be worried if I was looking for one again, I now think the rear lights do make the car look newer - so I fitted them, I also prefered the new style badges so fitted them. I prefer the old front lights where they follow the bonnet line so it's all down to personal choice. The only bit I wish my car had from the facelift is the cupholder in the dash (but I've heard it's not great) and the armrest works a treat.
Power - pretty irrelivent if you ask me. I think I'd still be looking for the car in better condition than than a facelift one!
