Does anyone know the difference between the Mk1 and Mk1 new mini? They look the same to me apart from the rear lights which look squarer and the bonnet seems to be a bit higher.

The new front wheel arch is one peice and the older one is a 2 peice. The side vent also goes up to the seam on the newer models. I think there were a lot of interior updates.

Didnt know there was a turbo now. I thought it was just a supercharger.
