I tried this on at least a dozen people.
I agree but find the opposite to be true about the tail. To me, both the 3 and 5 rears are too similar. The way I can tell the differences are:

1. Three dimensional grille connecting to the headlights (on 3).

2. Lack of front fender turn signals (on 3).

3. Lower, angrier nose (on 3).
