Okay, here s a question for you guys since I know nothing about the Matrix w/ the exception that it sexy as hell.

Anyways whats the difference in the 01 and 03 Matrix cosmetically for the outside? I was reading an old article that said the 03 Matrix is alot better looking than the 01, but I always thought it was the same and the new 05 was the half gen Matrix.

Can somebody please elaborate for me.

Cosmetically speaking, 03 and 04's are alike. The only change (exterior) in the 05 is the front grill and bumper (and foglight location.)
- 03/04 foglights located within lower grill
- 05 foglights located on bumper below headlights
Everything else (on the outside) remains the same. Oh wait. The taillights on the 05's are altezza stylee now.

03/04




05's
