Differences between the different model years of 3rd gen

Is there an exhaustive list of differences between, say an ‘89 and a ‘91?

I’m looking to get back into a 3rd gen, and my heart is set on as close as I can get to the ‘89 I had when I was 16.

It’d be a shame if I get into a ‘91 and be disappointed if there are too many differences.

I apologize if my post is ignorant or short sited. Appreciate any insight more experienced 3rd gen folks have!

Prelude of the Month
The 91 is more refined, cosmetically. The design-direction went a little more italian

Also consider that within the years, there were different tiers. In the US-region there was the S, 2.0SI, and SI. Furthermore, some came with optional equipment added by original owner at the dealer, such as 4-wheel Steering.

The major difference for 91 is that the "Si" model had the b21a1 engine.

You could find a 91 "2.0Si", with the b20a5 (like the 88 models) but that lacked some features like power windows, locks, etc.

Aside from the engine, the Prelude remained quite unchanged at it's core.
