[s-cars] Manual seat parts for C4

To the best of my recollection the stripper model was called simply 100.
No "S", no "E", no suffix at all.  And it was only available in '92.
Possibly '93, but definitely not in '94.  It had no power seats,
sunroof, heated seats, remote locks, ski sack, front fog lights,
nuttin'.  Not even an outside temp gauge (okay I'm cheating now and
looking at the '92 100 brochure I've got).  And none of these things
were available as options.  Only option you could get on the car was the
auto transmision.

The one good thing it had that I always thought might be a desirable
substitution on our cars is a non-servotronic power steering rack.  I'm
speculating that the non-servotronic steering rack might have a better
feel than our servotronic steering racks with the servotronic
