In 1997, all Z32 models adopted the twin-turbo front fascia, presumably to lower production costs.
In 1998, for 1999, the Z32 received a cosmetic update. To name some, the differences included:
New front fascia
New taillights (featuring clear turn signal lenses, chrome housings, and black pinstriping)
New center panel ("300ZX" became red instead of silver)
New rear spoiler
Light gold gauges (similar to the Maxima from the same era)
A slew of new interior options (including carbon fiber accents, "lift-style" window switches, and optional Recaro SR seats).
The 1998 Z32 also received a revised Manual Transmission, which used stronger synchronizers to combat a common "soft-synchro" problem that had become apparent on earlier Z32s.
