the 02 dash is classic, i like the orange message center alot more then the green writing below, cause theres no mepty gauge in the dash, and plus it looks alto nicer...

i have an EXT, and i know a lot of little things have been dropped over the years. but they have added nav., HIDs, different steering wheel, and other things like that. they also changed the climate control buttons, and i think they look a lot nicer. that's the only thing on the new ones i wish i had on my 02.

Does the 02 model have the onboard computer where you can change different features like the 03's? Like on the 03's you can change how long something stays on then power off.

If you're referring to the delay period for headlights, exit lamps, auto door locks, alarm config, mirror adjustment in reverse....

yes, the '02 does all that.

HIDs and Captain's Chairs...I agree with TDogg, I just wish the 02 had the updated climate controls, now even more since some of my backlights are burning out...

Not really. I had an '02, my sister has the '03, and my Dad has the '04. Other than the physical location of the computer in the '02; the features seem to be the same for all years.

i think the 02 also has a light under the hood. and from what other people have said, it seems the 02 gets better gas mileage.

Yes, there's a bunch of physical changes between the years but I was only referring to the computer.

Regarding the physical changes:

2002 has the cool exhaust tip while the '03 didn't...later to be added back on to the '04

2002 has the Halogens while 2003 and 2004 have HID

2002's driver computer is located in the center (beside the clock and above the CD changer) while the 03 and 04's have it integrated into the steering wheel

I'll edit my post

The computer that we have in the 02 is by the cd changer that tells how much gas etc, is in the 04s where it says how many miles we have in the dash. They use the computer by pressing the buttons on the steering wheel. I think the 02s are better by having it outside of the dash.

yeah, i think i like that better. the only thing i wish the steering wheel had (besides heat) is more radio functions. i wish we could change the radio station one number at a time and change bands from the steering wheel.
