andy, neither of our cars has the silver lettering on the airbox. however, according to the build plates, on of the cars was manufactured in early '93 and the other is a later '93. one car has the aluminum brembo calipers and the other has the cast iron calipers from the R107.
the bumper being mis-aligned could be a rsult of a number of things. it could even be the result of a minor accident which damaged only the bumper. (i have 1st hand experience with this) nevertheless, the bumper is quite easy to re-align.
