1988 was the first year for significant cosmetic changes to the A2 cars
(Golf/Jetta).  Exterior: 3-bar grille, new front doors (reloacated rear-view
mirrors, elimination of 1/4 windows), wider body side mouldings, and
different paint colours.  Interior: use of "chunkier" switchgear (column
stalks), new steering wheel, new interior patterns.  In 1990, the base
Jettas got 14" wheels as standard equipment.  My favourite year of the A2s
is the early 1990 models, which had all of the updated exterior trim
(including the 14" wheels) of the late model cars, minus the big bumpers,
which arrived in 1990.5.  IMHO, the big bumpers make the car look heavy.

Congratulations on your purchase.
