    How is the Doc? it was a pretty bad impact from what i've read.

    anyway, to answer your question.

    facelift has the following (this isn't an extensive list by the way)

    digital clock instead of analogue
    one piece door handles instead of 2 piece
    rectangular side repeaters not square
    washer jets hidden under the bonnet not mounted in the bonnet
    one piece headlamp and indicators
    rear lights have reversing lights to the bottom of the light unit not the top side
    boot lid has hidden "touchpad" under number plate light recess not button in middle of lock plinth
    centre consol switches are wide rather than tall
    cover over battery tray, not fitted on pre facelift
    don't think pre facelifts have the night vision lighting in the o/head consul either

    hope that helps

    Dave, yer a good un! Doc's doing well, he's a bit messed up but alive and keen to get better! Should be seeing him again this week too!

    ahhh that's a tricky one, forgot about the manifolds. early cars were prone to de-laminating, facelift cars had the RS4 manifolds that didn't suffer from that, it's hard to tell which yours are, seems like you have a 99.5 car if you have the analogue clock and the other features. i wonder if a stealer could tell you from your chassis number?
