The AC Control Panel and AC Vents of the ER34 have this plasticky rubbery feel to it. And it gets especially sticky if left under the hot sun. Needless to say, it's terrible and pretty annoying to to the touch and more so if soft material like tissue paper were to come in contact with it.
However, the BNR34 are equipped with the exact same part but comes in better black plastics that does not get sticky at all. Surely, the cost savings aren't that significant to warrant a two part system. Anyway, I got hold of the BNR34 items and fitted them onto my car.
Both are identical bar that the BNR34 AC Control Panel comes with an extra function called AMB built into the temperature adjustment knob. When depressed, it shows the outside temperature. Well, not that it's particularly useful here anyway.
Here are some pictures to highlight the differences.
