With the exception of the late build AU 2's, series 2 was 200kW and while series 3 was 220kW. Series 3 also received colour coded mirrors and clear side indicator lenses. The full Tickford or Supercar body kits were also standard on series 3 as the series 2 only came with the side skirts standard. Not sure about anything else apart from a series 3 badge.

Couldn't have said it better myself. You summed it up perfectly.

As well as the the features mentioned Series III AU's get the dot print windscreen around the rear vision mirror area.
The seals of the doors are also different for the late AUII and III.

Yeah yeah i know it's going to the particulars but just thought i'd mention them. :s6:

Wasnt there an improvement in the Diff? and the use of a tad more noise reduction material around the firewall?
