exhaust hangers changed in Dec 01 from outwardly pointing fittment (like the photos in my gallery) to inward fitting, like your car. My car is Apr 02, but i had to nick a strap from a pre Dec01 car to fit them.
Who are you getting the pipe from? You should specify that yours is the new fitting, and tell them about the change of style.
the 4 mounting studs on the bottom of the car are in the same plave, but what changed was the hangers and the shape of the top strap that goes round th OEM backbox.
Most manufacturers have changed the design, howeversome may still have old stock of hte old fitting.
the old fitting will not fit the new mounting without significant alteration - so make sure the box has the right fittings
Hope this helps
