Thanks for the roundup. The only point I'd make is that the normal 5ks
had 4-bolt hubs, same as the '89-'91 100. The standard wheel was the
8-slot flat aero, 14", 4x108 I think? You see those on 4ks sometimes.
Regarding a CS quattro model with no turbo, I'm pretty sure it didn't
exist in the US, though Geo makes it clear that it did in Canada and
'87 5kcs(t)q 175k
