There are other things too, but they don't always tell the tale. Round airbag steering wheel is one way to tell as is sport seats and the 5 spoke ///M badged wheels.
Smolck - Just crawled under the car and pulled this number from the Sachs lower rear shock body: 81 4901 557 207. The was another number that was partially readable: 2352 6 7 X X.
Could not make out the X numbers on either rear shock. I did a parts search with the first number and nothing came up.
