2000 does seem to kinda be a freak year for Roush, especially those built in early 2000.
From what I have noticed the following seeem to vary somewhat:
Tool kit contents
Floor mat logos
Roush rear decal...some on back window, some on rear "flat black" valence
Just some I have noticed, there are probably more. It would be interesting to see what else is noted among 2000 Roush owners.
I think what happened in 2000 was that Roush was transitioning from a semi-specialty car to a semi-tuner car, with an eye on the future S3. I think they were transitioning from regional contractual modifiers to a more centralized modification concept with stronger Roush corporate control over the final product.
My 2 cents worth.
