if were talkin civics we mean ek's basicly face lift is where the car company dont redesign the whole car jus add a few new bits change a few things hence the name facelift. the ek's faced lifted at 1998 as the ek's were made from 1996-2000, same thing happend to the ep3 (type r that we all no and love) they were faced lifted on the late 53 reg. all that honda did on both examples was changed the front and rear lights trim and a few minor engine mods nothing massive face life changes are maily cosmetic

hth dude ;)

ford did this and claimed a redesign. the mk5 was no different to the mk4 (mk5 is the shape they did zetec-s in)
the mk6 was facelifted in 2006 but there were no major changes.

hence face-lift

old people in their 40s or 50s do this to make themselves look younger. theres a program about it and it sometimes works. but it isnt worth the effort!

Sometimes car manufacturers even swop out engines in facelift cars. VW are a good example of a fickle company.
