They are built on the same production line and tend to be a higher spec but basically the same car. As they are brought into the UK later in their life they tend to be less rusty. They have the same rustproffing.

The rear number plate and bumper tend to be different and they may not have a rear fog light but some will have fitted one.

This is the guide I was going to post but it is actually for trying to identify specific versions of Eunos...
http://ox.mx5oc.co.uk/guide_eunos.htm
Not sure on accuracy, I am not sure anyone knows the specs on these things (Lots of cars registered as V limited that are not). Mine is a Euno's 1.8 and called V-Limited with insurance/reg doc. But going by that guide it is a boggo 130bhp roadster... :roll:
