Umm, my old 87 5kCST had chromed door lock mechanisms(well, actually, 
a chrome "piece" in the door handle.) The only difference in trunk 
lids was the relocation of the release button.  Non-CS models in any 
year had black middle rear panels, all CS models had orange/red back 

There was also a slight, but insignificant, change in various things, 
like the throttle body is a little different.

Someone pointed out that I skipped over the 89/90 200's, and that's 
right, I did sell them short, so my recommendation changes to "any 
turbo type 44 after 1987."

In terms of:

-replacement parts(try finding a V8 manual tranny!)
-performance mods
-performance, period...

a turbo car is a much better idea.
