|I owned a 96 NA and currently a 96 TT.
Clues for a 96:
The redesigned TPS. (97+ for JDM)
Fuse cover box has yellow print.
Plugs on the top of the upper plenum by the TB. This was actually a late 96 thing.
Regardless of interior color green tint glass was 96 only for the most part...some very early 96 models did get blue or brown depending on interior color.
Yellow Brake Cylinder cap was not a 96 thing. At some point new cylinders came with yellow caps, well after production stopped for the US.
