    Some pre-facelifts like mine are full canbus it is not that easy a distinction to make. The main differences are when you buy parts and want to do mods so work on 1/2 canbus and others on Full the full is the more modern setup and as such has more flexibility in terms of the equipments that can be installed like bluetooth telephones.
