Easy...


B5 on the far left (with badgeless grill) and B5.5 right next to it.
Ooh ooh... lemme try...

B5, B5.5, MkII.5 Corrado, MKIII, MKIV Golf, MKIV Jetta, space, space, POS, space, Camaro, Maxima.



Ok, heres a couple more pics for a thread that will likely die soon:

B5 from the rear: Jetta tail-lights as noted, lights don't complete the 'triangle', no chrome, slightly larger VW badge (if you're picky).


B5.5 from the front: Head-light corners are pointed down and are all in one housing, whereas B5's are separate and square, chrome half bumper highlight, lower grills often w/fogs are pointed up, whereas B5's are rounded.

Excessive front overhang on the 2001.5 and later B5.

Yes, I'm one of the few screwballs on this forum who still calls all of them a B5.

"Can't we all just get along" Posting this in advance of the pissing contest that is sure to ensue. :poke:

I like them both, but I've owned a 2003 GLX 4Motion (Silverstone Grey) and currently own a 2003 W8 (Blue Spirit).
And my wife had a 2001.5 GLS (Colorado Red Pearl).
It's all good...
