    Taken from the Astrasport FAQ Forum..

    L = Lux
    LS = Lux Special
    GL = Grand Lux
    GLS = Grand Lux Sport
    SR = Sports Refinement
    SRi = Sports Refinement Injection
    SXi = Sports Xtra Injection
    GTE = Grand Touring Einspritz (German for Injection and probably spelt wrong)
    GSi = Grand Sport Injection
    CD = company Director
    CDX = Company Director Xtra

    The difference between intelligence and stupidity is that intelligence is limited.

    S and SR was used on the Opel Ascona - S indicated high compression (in those days) as in 19S coded engine.

    CD originally meant Corp Diplomatique

    They don't really mean anything on modern cars - every code has several guesses made but manufacturers don't make up codes like that.
    Maintains:- Vectra Design 1.9CDTi
    Drives :- Hyundai Santa Fe
