Re: Was ANYTHING retained when the Enterprise was refit?

They re-imagined the Enterprise, just like they re-imagined the Klingons. The "refit" is just a vague in-universe handwave acknowledgement that things look a little different.

If Kirstie Alley and Robin Curtis look the same in-universe as Saavik, and the bad-rubber-suit Gorn is "really" a fearsome lizard monster, then how much did the Enterprise really change? Certainly it wasn't as radical a change in-universe as the shift from a 1960's TV show to a 1979 big budget movie was in real life.
