Small Differences that go unnoticed

So after having two 94 rmw's and now owning a 96 rmw, the small things im noticing...

Sure, the obvious differences of side mirrors and trim that goes to the sides of the mirror, hood ornaments, center consoles and unseen things like the 4l60e's....

...but somethings just seem minor and hadn't noticed before, like...

- the plastic "air cleaner" (not really a cleaner) piece. The 96 has a cut out of it by the oil filter tube.
- the oil dip stick on the 96 is a loop pull and not the T-handle on the 94
- the seat belt covers (on the male side)
- extra oem cooling hose out of overflow tank

What unnoticed things have you noticed??

No headliner handle over the driver's seat on 96's. Kind of annoying actually.
