    1996-1998 civics and 1999-2000 civics ?
    I thought a 6th gen was a 6th gen but I see different parts listed for them all the time ?
    Mainly I see different parts listings on hoods and upper grills and such.

    someone care to explain the full differnce between them ? anything else different besides the hoods and grills ?

    #1: Tails were different.
    (96-98) red/clear/amber
    (99-00) Red/Clear
    Both sets are interchangeable between model years

    #2: The complete front end is different.
    (hood, headlamps, fenders, upper grill, bumper cover)
    Both complete front ends are interchageable between model years as well. 99-00 Front end swap onto a 96-98 is quite common.

    Thats about it for the exterior differences.

    99-00 also has the antenna built into the rear window, rather than the traditional antenna, nothing major.

    The climate controls are all different on the different years too. they just seemed to move them from one side of the radio to the other.

    99-00 civics have the antenna on roof on the drivers side.

    Actually, the trunk lid is different where the inner tails go, however the corners are the same and are interchangeable.

    The white one is the 96-98 front end although the ambers are cleared from the headlights.
