Off the top of my head they had the chrome grill instead of painted plastic, and the Minilight style alloys. I think they were to "S" spec, and maybe had the three aux gauge panel in the lower DIN slot. Tail spoiler too, I think. I had the chrome grill from one that I bough from a friend in CA on my 85 Turbo - that grill is rare as hen's teeth in the States, as it was only sold here as a super expensive accessory. Otherwise nothing too different from any other non-turbo 84. Oh, they may well have had the turbo suspension - gas-charged shocks.
