Being that this is under your ride...yes the differences you note are things I noticed too.

Please move the things to be fixed/questions to mechanical and audio as they relate to those sections. You will get much better exposure and answers there.

I'll be there awaiting the post.

1. Instrument Cluster has Boost Gauge instead of the Battery Gauge. Where'* the Battery Gauge? YOU DON'T GET ONE.
2. Tranny has 1, 2, 3 and Over Drive instead of 1, 2, D and Over Drive. Is 3 the same as D? YES.
3. Head Rests seem stiffer because they don't roll forward as much. Is this true for the '96-'99 cars? NOT THAT I'VE NOTICED. YOU HAVE A STIFFY.
4. Door Panels have the speakers integrated into the panel instead of separate. Are the speakers easier of more difficult to replace? NEITHER. YOU STILL MUST REMOVE THE PANEL TO ACCESS THEM.
5. Exhaust Tips are not attached to the rear bumper (Thank God!) and seem to be bolt-on. Are they bolt-on or welded? I'd like to replace them. THEY SHOULD BE WELDED.
6. Headlight Bulbs seem different. Are they HID? NO. JUST A DIFFERENT REFLECTOR AND LENS DESIGN.

6. Engine leaking oil at top side near driver'* side by Firewall side. Hopefully, this is just a gasket!
7. Engine leaking oil near oil pan by sending switch.
My oil pan leaks cause it was smashed up by a speed bump by the original dumba$$ owner, same one that used polishing compound as wax. The valve covor gaskets leak from age. Will be replaced with rocker instalation. Sounds like you have the same leaks. Get rockers and the valve covor gaskets will come with them.
