Is your grille big and chrome, or is it surrounded by body clolor metal around the chrome. Thats the easiest way to tell.
The other ways to tell are the trunk lid.
The 94-95 model trunklid has a chrome handle above the license plate which I would say is 12-18 inches long.
The 94-95 models also have red/smoked tail lights.
The front indicators will also be clear with an orange strip on the sides of the indicators.
one last thing is to look at the headlights with the hood open.
If the inner part of the headlights has a curve going down it where the hood meets up with the lights, then that should be a 94-95 model.
I do think that in 1993 some of the 124 cars were produced with the updated styling while still being a 1993.
generally i thought that new models for the next year came out in august, but it could very well be that they made some earlier in the year.
If your car has the items I described above then it is most likely the newer style 94-95 model of the 124.
hope that helps,
