    Default Need some help with dealer acronyms

    Friend of mine went to dallas today to find us an X5. Wifey is going to get a 3.0 titanium silver 2003-2002 anything under $28k. So we have these printouts, and we need help with the dealer acronyms.

    Here goes:

    6G = (6 cyl?)
    AT = automatic
    MN =
    MS =
    AC = AC
    AFCH =
    STC =
    HSDP =
    PL = Power Locks
    PW = Power Windows
    CC =
    PSDP =
    STB =
    PST = Power Steering

    Under the Vin there are other acronyms most of which I can get

    Like:
    DSC = Dynamic Skid Control (right?)
    DSP =
    K2 =
    OBC = On Board Computer
    SPT = Sport package
    SS =
    WT =
    XL =
    Prem PKG = Premium Package
    HDC =
    PDC =


    Any help filling in the breaks would be greatly appreciated. He's going to call us from the auction, and we need to know what we'll be "blind bidding" on.

    thanks

    That is so sweet. Who cares how the board looks? For three years you guys have helped me with the bimmer info. I can only hope to give back my experience to others equally.

    There are still some dealer acr's that don't match, but hopefully we'll be able to match those on the window sticker with your list when he calls.

    Thank you so very much.

    If she buys the X5, we will be offering her 92 535ia here first.
