Change of model year usually means a facelift - the russian site isn't 100% accurate however.

Based on the VIN and the other information it appears to be a 1991 car. Model 129.066 was replaced by 129.067 in September 1992, as was engine 119.960 to 119.972.

thats for that flyboyike and stats007. I'll take it for a test drive and see how it goes. It's costing me 42K aud which is one of the cheapest over here in Aus and I can't afford more than that but for the same money im sure I could get a newer model in the us (30K usd)...[:(]
