Do you have one piece headlights and the facelifted taillights?

Click the image to open in full size.
^Should look like those

If so, you have the 1999.5 instead of the early 1999 that came with two piece headlights.

There are a lot of differences but headlights/foglights are the most noticeable. Tails changed too, along with door handles, center dash, shifter trim, passenger door mirror, reverse-gear engagement (no more push-down), gauge illumination, a-pillar airbags, headunit, etc etc etc...

I thought it was a remap to accommodate a change from a K03 to a K03S turbo.
