Sushrutha - is yours a type 1 or a type 2 ?

Does anybody have pictures, or leads to BHP garages where I can look for Type 1 and Type 2 pictures

Thanks

Sushrutha's is the type 2 City. I believe that Type 1 had slider controls for AC

Adding to Sushrutha's post, exterior differences also include New bonnet design, new grille, bumper, front fenders, boot lid, rear bumper & rear quarter panels.

And better upholstery on the seats/door pads plus different console & HVAC controls.

i also own type 1 and someone was telling me that the engine and some other mechanical parts are purely made in japan whereas type 2s have indian assembly. Is this correct?
even i have felt type1 engines bit smoother than type 2s.
