European brochures show the basic 80 without any spoilers, sport packs with
the 'flush lip'-type spoiler, 90 FWD with the same, free-standing spoiler
on 90qs.
WRT wheels- there were some differences in the US as compared to European
cars. Basic 80s had steel wheels/plastic hubcaps, whereas more upmarket
cars had the aero alloys. 20vs got Speedlines, other wheels optional. Mine
has 15x7 16-spoke Ronals, don't know if it's a factory option or later
add-on. Spare wheel was 14x6 Ronal before I changed it for an emergency

See http://members.tripod.lycos.nl/AudiJunk/model_codes2.html for more
80/90 configurations- both European and US.
