A few slight corrections to your slight corrections ;-)

The 5000 did indeed become the 100/200 in 1989. The airbag didn't
arrive until 1990. The interior isn't all that different from the 1988.
ABS I believe was on the 1988 5000's (optional?). It was standard on
the 100/200, but maybe only in quattros?

What are inverted brakes? Brakes for when you've flipped the
car upside-down?

Only my cat shares my opinions, and she's rarely upside-down.
