    AFAIK theyre mostly cosmetic changes:

    1. New bonnet, front grille/spoiler
    2. Revised headlights
    3. Revised taillights
    4. Larger wing mirrors, now housing LED indicator repeaters
    5. Revised interior buttons/switches
    6. Some new alloy wheel designs
    7. And probably a few equipment changes as well

    As for the date, I dont exactly, but I think from around September 08 build???
