I've never heard about it.. But it may be an Euro-model - a lot of the
Audi 100s hasn't even got power door locks..
In Europe, the models with fuel injection has also got an "E" after
the engine size - like "Audi 100 2.3E" or "Audi 100 2.8E"
As far as I know, no Audi 100 after about 1985 has got carburated
engines, so it was just left there.. :-)
The old model from 77 to 82 was just "5E" with 138 hp fuel injection
2.3 I5, "5S" with about 120 hp carburated 2.3 I5, and "5D" with the 70
hp I5 diesel.
