Wheels: Known as the "clover rim", glossy wheel ring standard on the 1800E. Steel rim with a light metal centre

Grille: Same as 1970 (Late cars for the US market had the same plastic ABS grille as the 1972 model)

B20 badge: The '69S and the '70E had a badge on the drivers side of the grille that said "B20" to advertise the newer bigger engine. A big stylized "B" with the "20" underneath it. It was deleted for the 1971 year so only the 1969S (with the shiny grille) and the 1970E (with the black grille) models had it. 1971 retained the black grille from the '70 but without the B20 badge.
