In 1989 the 5000 line turned into a 100/200 line. THe 200's were
turbo I5's(20v in 1991). The most notable external difference ar the
headlights and taillights. Notable difference between 5k and 100/200 is
the redesign of the interior. For the 1992 model year the body was
redone, the engine was replaced with a V6(except for S4 20v I5) and a
bunch of other changes were made. THey called this version the 100. In
1995 the 100's were called the A6 and the S4 the S6.

Nope, sucks huh.... 1995 was the last year for the S6's.

The nomenclature died when the V6 90 came out in '92. THe 90 died
altogethr when the A4 arrived in '96.
