Question BA 1994 + 1996 interior compatibility

Hey all! Long time lurker but this is my first actual post so be nice

I have a 1996 BA that has a terrible interior. Torn seats, worn carpet, etc. Its a Noble green one and I'm looking to change it. For a while I was thinking of just getting it reupholstered.
but,

last night, on ebay, I found a charcoal grey 1994 BA about 30 mins away from where I live for $500, unregistered and with a few engine problems. The interior is IMMACULATE and also not green. I plan to buy it, swap out the interior for mine, maybe use a few parts from the engine, sell some on here and then probably take the rest to the wreckers.

My question is, is there any differences between the 1994 BA to the 1996 that could potentially foil my plan to completely redo my interior?

no differences except colour for 94 and 96.

only the mid 97-98s had slight differences. but are still interchangable.

About the only difference is door wiring - the 94 will should have courtesy lights in the front doors, and the 96 won't.

i think the wiring is still there for all models. just just not hooked up. but it is a useless light anyway. but the 96 cap where the light should be is removable to put in the 94 light. and visa versa.

Nah, my 96 doesn't have the plug for the door lights. The wiring could be in the door loom, but no plug.

You'll have to remove the dashboard if you plan to change the green to grey, but apart from that there really is no difference apart from the courtesy light mentioned above.
