My interior is identical. I don't see any differences there, HOWEVER, in contradiction to my previous comments, look carefully at the two front shots. Notice the transition from the headlight to the front corner light. The fenders and corner lights are 96+, but the grill, hood, headlights, and bumper are all 92-95. I'd like to know how the headlights are actually mounted. The whole front radiator brace/frame must be swapped in from a 92-95 as well.

I wouldn't touch this car with a pair of surgical gloves on, but I'd LOVE to see one of our Minnesota bretheren take a personal look-see. Anyone up to the task?

Hmm, those plates aren't Iowa. Give a link to the other car.

EDIT: Just beat me.

Those have to be 92-95 fenders and corners. 96+ corners are all amber, no clear. That is a 96+ steering wheel.

The wheels on the Frankenstein car aren't right for the year, either.

Tofu, that happens all the time. When some cheeseball is trying to sell a car, he'll steal pics that are from a similar car rather than take and post his own. It doesn't surprise me a bit.

I think the guy took just exterior pics of his 98 mix and match, stole some engine and interior pics, and listed it that way. It'* a 98 SSEi, with the front end parts pilfered from a 92-95 SSEi.

If the vin number matches the vehicle, then its a 1998.
