    Hi.
    I made the decision to replace my accord for something more comfy. I would be looking for w211 but with limited budget. I've heard the best option is to buy facelift model. However it came to my attention that they are some models around 2005 having eg. prefacelift body (no visible changes eg. old grille ,lamps and bumper) with 7g tronic box and v6 2.8 cdi -which is clearly facelift engine. Being aware of post facelift changes made, what do you know for sure was changed in this particular model. I am specially interested if sbc brake pump is replaced and any changes to steering and suspension, dpf present? Cosmetics are not that important. Thanks.

    7G and V6 CDI were introduced before facelift, AFAIK as far the body is pre-facelift, there is SBC fitted.

    Ok thank you guys for the reply. I guess my best option will be to look for low mileage/fsh one.
