Just checked mot, its March, still on the road, mine, and registered 93 not 92. Don’t think the log book gives a trim?? Q1 says 2 and Q2 says 1, am I reading it right?

Whatever the V5 states the model as is what it will show as.
What does it say on the V5?
I suspect it doesn't say Sd.

Citroen (Servicebox) Characteristics has this...
Interesting discrepancy on the RP no., but close enough!
RP 5938 = 10 Feb 1993
RP 5940 = 12 Feb 1993

It's just a standard PDF file (a 1-page document), which downloads and opens up here (on Win PC) ok.
Here it is as a JPG, hopefully readable.
Click to enlarge...and zoom in as needed...

It's the factory record of the engine, finish and equipment that went into the car. It doesn't cover everything, but does list many of the model options and variations.
It's part of Citroen's parts database, linked to the VIN number of each car.
Cars in the early 80s had quite sparse detail, but this, the 'Characteristics' page, was enlarged as time went on.
The RP number decodes as the date the car left the factory, and advances by one digit each day. It is still used today, and is used by Parts and workshop manual pages to identify when components were changed or updated. If you google "RP decoder" you can enter a number and get its date.

This shows the car was built with automatic heating and fan control, front fog lamps, i think sonata velour upholstery (FY), heated tinted door mirrors.
All that makes it Sd trim level.

I assume it has left hand information display, rear electric windows and rear passenger vents in the B pillars.

As the V5 declares it as a Turbo-d, it is the fifth one showing for Q2-2012.
