Per pretty much summed it all, except a few things...

In the 100 euro-series you forget the 2.0 td version with 100HP and the
very rare type 44 Audi 100 TDI with 120 HP as opposed to the 115HP version
available on the C4 models...

And the 5 cylinder Audi 80 were available with the 1.9l carburetted
5-cylinder engine (even after 1985 I think) and also as quattros with the
2144 KK engines (82-83-84) and also after 1985 with the 2.0l JS engine type...
