    around 2001, you can find facelift cars on X ad Y reg but i think from 51 on they where all facelift.

    loads of changes, seach on here as its been discussed loads

    but briefly

    headlights
    taillights
    badges
    centre console
    225 engine (although you can get facelift with 210 engine, best ones to have as insurance is a group less!!)

    I'm pretty sure they were given their 'facelift' around x reg....
    Not sure on the exact difference apart from the obvious ones i.e different lights, slightly different dashboard as well i believe... Others on here will be able to give ou a much more detailed list of the differences..
