Looking to buy Honda Civic 2009 - facelift or not?

Hi, I've joined this site because I'm stressing voer buying a new Honda, have no idea what I'm talking about and have been getting so much useful information from here. So thankyou!
A question about one I'm looking at....I want to go for the 2009 facelift model if possible for the AUX input..is this one a facelift or not? As I only have the pictures to go from I can't just have a look and see if there is one

Thanks

It looks like the perspex grille is continuous with no "nostrils" so probably not facelift.

Rear indicator is orange suggesting pre-facelift too

trim is grey, too. All signs point to pre-facelift!

Some facelifts still had grey trim. The one your looking at is definitely pre facelift

Apart from the glovebox audio connections and grille I'm sure they tweaked the suspension slightly to try and soften it a bit.

If the only reason for buying a facelifted 8th gen is the aux input, buy a pre facelift which will be cheaper and install a double din unit. Much more functionality than a simple aux in

The other big plus I've just remembered about my facelift 8G was the change in seat fabric.

The pre facelift fabric, if you care about how it looks, used to look like a mowed cricket pitch as soon as you touched it giving the appearance that it was multi-coloured.

Maybe just me because not many moaned about it

I notice it has headlamp washers and with those alloys is this a EX model? It may have sat nav as well?

Don't forget to check the important things like full service history and owners manual.

Good luck
