My '98 (S reg, early Phase II) had the radio remote, so maybe the change was actually alongside the facelift.

IIRC (from my M reg one) the IR version has a white infra-red LED in the key and you have to aim it at a small receiver dome near the rear view mirror. If the key and car don't have either of these, then it's likely to be the radio version.

If it is the IR one, then you can check that the infra-red LED is working by viewing it through a mobile phone camera. Infra-red is invisible to the human eye, but shows up as a bright white light on most digital cameras.
