The only orderable extra on the above models was just the colour: if you planned to take one in a metallic-colour that will have cost you another 500 DM. As far as I remember there were only eight colours available - six of them are metallic. The others were black and white. The interieur was always light-grey, no matter which color was chosen.

Unlike to the Le Barons of those days, no leather interieur was offered.

I have no idea, if they still offer a sun-roof or a factory-installed trailer-hook after 1990. These were mentioned in a paper, which I found at my dealer somewhere in 1990, but soon these options disappered and weren't offered anywhere else.

The radio/cassette combination is completely different from those used in the USA. It is much smaller, it is removable from its 'Quick-Out'-frame and has no digital clock built in. The clock is a separate unit built into the spacer-frame over the R/C-unit. The radio is made by Clarion, has 4 x 8/12 Watt output power, FM,LW and MW. Its outer size meets DIN-requirements (DIN = German Industrial Norm) and German laws on radio receivers. These laws for example say, that the FM-receiving range may only be between 87.5 and 108 MHz. The US radio didn't match these rules and you could receive the police communication with them ... !
