i agree........... i have seen and been in more bonnes than most on the board......that said there a few things that differ between the 92-95 and the 96-99, lets face it.....the interior only have very minor differences, and if if need be i can list all of them, but reastically to the untrained eye, they are very minimal

and this has turned into a options and comforts battle. The question was more focused around the drivetrain, not the creature comforts or options

Remember that I am in a local bonneville club of 60 members. Even though i only had 2 93'* I have drove a 88, 89, 92, 94, 95, 98, and a 2000. You all dont have to believe me at all but i am not one who forget how a car sound or feel. Sorry for adding my 2 caents to this whole thread.

I will say the series I has very noticeable lifter clatter at idle, i've never really heard a series II do this at the same level.

I don't have a hint of clatter at all, but I've only got 110k on her.

I've got some of that clatter too (most audible with your ear in vicinity of the front of the car), but 200,000 miles does that

Neighbour'* '87 LG3 is practically silent relative to mine (well, save for a leaky exhaust, lol) at about 110,000km.

Yes, thats what i'm taking about. Lifter clatter. All Ser 1 i've heard have it. No Ser 2 i've heard have it. The Ser 2 prolly was redesighned to take care of the problem.

There is no major difference in the two drivetrains. Most Series 1 cars you've heard have more miles on them than the Series 2'*.

My car has ZERO lifter clatter.

Then my old 93 is crap. Because it has bad clatter and the same mileage as my Ser 2. Actually I haven't heard as many Ser 1 */c have lifter clatter as the NA. No Ser 2 i've heard has lifter clatter.
