I'm sure there's a post somewhere for this but, basically,

D8 -1996 to 1999 (until vin VF39?????8079999)
*mainly* with the slatted grille
indicator repeaters in the side trim
clock along side the instruments
sane electrics



D9 1999 to 2004 (from vin VF38?????8080000
*mainly* with the honeycomb grille
indicator repeaters above the trim
hazard warning light switch along side the instruments
until late 2001 semi-multiplex, full mux after

Nuff?
Unskilled meddling sin©e 2007

2004 D9 2.0 HDi 110 Estate lhd VF38ERHZF81657352 - sold but being very well looked after.
1991 Yamaha TDM850 - fuel leaks galore!
2008 Toyota Recall4 2.0 VVTI ATM LHD JTMBH31V90D007261 - flimsy piece of crap.
1953 Matchless G3LS - It's alive!!

D8 and D9 are sort phase I and phase II in another words. Appearance wise there are major differences on the front and rear lights, grill, both bumpers.

Mechanically, Suspension setup, gear cables instead links, abs as standard. As a result D9 got better safety standards.

Electrically, the wiring system got multiplexed with BSIs Introduced.

No need for apologising,what you dont know,you ask. :P
D9 is for facelift,D8 is the first line of 406.
