Facelift version has a lighter fly wheel making its 0-60 a couple of tenths of a second quicker.

Here are the differences.

Lighter flywheel.
Additional sound deadening.
Different front and rear light clusters.
Different front bumper and grille.
Red door inserts and red inserts on the seats.

Pre facelift is much more preferable in looks in my opinion.

The seats are the same, but the facelift seats have red inserts in place of the grey.

Then you have the Premier editions, which were released at the end of the EP3's life... Typically on 05 onwards from memory.

ontop of the above list, you get red and black Recaros, Red Carpets, Rear Tints.

Facelift has the side repeaters in the wing mirrors, pre facelift they are on the wings.

I prefer the pre facelift as you see a lot of EP2's that look identical to the facelift EP3's.
