I can see the differences just fine. Don't know why everyone else seems to be having problems. Anyways, some small things do change from year to year and customers give their input to dealers, and it'* passed along to the engineers. Believe it or not, they do try to make little changes to make the car more appealing to customers over the years without a complete re-design.

the pics are to show the COLOR of the different faces, and nothing else

the faces are swappablew all the way back to 92 if you wanted a Tinted Face, which looks much better because the display is not visable on the tinted as it is on the red face

and the ECC in ALL bonne is Green they never had a Red ECC that Im aware of

Yeah mine has the reddish screen but obviously when it'* on it displays green...well until I overlayed clear blue vinyl on the interior glass to make it BLUE I wonder what effect the clearer "screen" would have on light output though because mine is a little dim during the day with the blue tint.

My guess is that the newer design doesn't suffer from sun wash-out as badly as the old screen. In direct sunlight I think the old one would be harder to see than the new one. I could be wrong though. The only Bonnevilles to get the red ECC are the 2000+ ASFAIK.
