how do you tell which is which n15/n16

have two almera's now one 1.4 01 4 door and the second is a hatchback 1.4 s sport 98 in blue my question is how do i tell which is a n15 or n16 and which phase they are?:confused:
 
96-97 = Phase 1 N15
98-99 = Phase 2 N15
00-on = N16

;)

There are exceptions with the months in which they were made, but thats the basic cut offs...

Visually, lights, bumpers, and dials are different in the phase 2. The centre dash consol is also different unless it's an S model phase 2.

PHASE 1 N16



PHASE 2 N16

 
Did any Ph1 N16's come with a screen surround like the Ph2? Or was the satnav version only available as a screen in the top pocket as shown in the photo?

Yeah only screen under lid. The screen surround was made for the phase 2.
 
it'd be interesting to know if it's poss to install the P2 screen into a P1 model. Might see if I can mod my P1 with a sat-nav in place... A project for the future I think...

Buy a double DIN screen head unit. Alpine do one with sat nav and all the media bumf. Touch screen, and will be much better than the p2 system.
