From memory, phase 1.5 is the crossover point from phase 1 to phase 2, I think they went fully colour coded & changed the exterior/interior over, nothing 'special' about them but I don't think you see many in pearl white anymore, I've seen D & E reg ones. Your AEI (coil & vacuum module) will be inside the engine bay above the turbo like phase 1's, the phase 2 went into the scuttle IIRC.
There was a write up somewhere with some history if memory serves me right, I'll see if I can find it, if not James will know.
Thanks mate as I would love to see any info you can find or point me towards.

You are right about that unit being just above the turbo I've just been down to the garage to check. Funny really as the turbo gets really hot heat-shield or not.
If you know of any links to sites that have any info on the pearly ones, pm please.

I've been talking about it for so many years I have to get on with it soon or we will all be driving around in electric flying cars and I will still be dithering over my wheel choice :lol:

yes keep it pearl white, please.

Hard to find and especially if you're going standard, it's the color to have.

As for the Fase 1,5 it's difficult to determine.

I have a 01/1988 reg GTT too and I have a cooled turbo, the sensors are already moved, have a the faseII exterior and interior patterns, but the console is faseI and the windows open manually.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know if the door cards on the phase 1 are covered in a different material to the phase 2?

Mine are vinyl. Starting to understand a bit more about this now. Facets of both phases in one car.
