Re: 90 lowered "sport" suspension
My Coupe was built in 89(90 model year) and it has 15 inch 6 spoke
speedline wheels with stock 195/65/15 tires and they look small in the
wheel wells. There was never a 14 inch wheel for the 20v90Coupe as
far as I know in the US.

I think that all Coupes and most 90q20Vs in 1991 had the
lowered suspension. How do you tell? Look at your car.
It sits lower. The lowered suspension, as I said, generally
came with the 205/50/15 speedline wheels. This is the stock
size for that car (the other was 195/60-14 or 175/70-14).
195/65-15 began in 1992. They wont even fit in my wheelwells.
I tried, on a lark (wheels from my A6q are that size).
BOGE specs the "24mm lowered suspension" in its application
guide. It is a different shock, presumably a shorter piston,
and hopefully different valving to match the slightly
stiffer springs (my rear springs are NOT very stiff).
