The versions with rear vented discs was the turbo with heavy-duty
undercarriage and the "CS" trim level (both turbo and non-turbo).

All those cars had the 5/112 bolt pattern, no rear vented discs
available in 4/108.

Another "feature" here in Europe: All the NA I5 engines with 2144,
2226 and 2309 ccm had either 133, 136 or 138 hp. (less power in newer
versions due to emissions) And that made "our" NA I5 more powerful
than your 5kt turbo I5.. :-)
