Three other differences between '05 & '06 that I've heard about or seen:
1) The '06 has an additional piece at the bottom of the front bumper (some call it an air dam). Very minor appearance difference. Unknown functional/aerodynamic difference. Pain in the butt to attach a factory vinyl front end mask (aka "bra") to, from what I've read on the forums. Supposedly they say the mask fits '04 - '06, but in reality the "air dam" may dictate otherwise.
2) The '06 has chrome on the front grill.
3) The '06 has a textured surface to the dashboard, which I wish my '05 had. One of the few complaints I have with my car is the ease with which the smooth dashboard surface smudges. I assume the textured surface would resist smudges better.
