Ah, I guess I wasn’t really paying attention
I agree that the ETK nomeclature is odd and confusing. It wouldn't take much to fix though.
All you have to do is make the t in the 800 series mean turbo and take away the i in the I series trims. I had some other thoughts too-
Spoiler: ETK nomeclature in my head
For modern bodystyles (mainstream)-
840= 800 sedan
850= 800 wagon
860= 800 crossover coupe
960= 800 crossover
For modern trims (mainstream and flagship)-
854t= 4 cylender turbocharged
854tx= 4 cylender turbocharged AWD
855d= 5 cylender deisel
855td= 5 cylender turbodeisel
856= 6 cylender
856c= 6 cylender comfort
856x= 6 cylender AWD
856tc= 6 cylender turbocharged comfort
856tx= 6 cylender turbocharged AWD
856 ttsport= 6 cylender twin-turbo sport
and so on
For old bodystyles (mainstream and flagship)-
cs= hardtop sport coupe
sc= 2 door sedan
ss= 4 door sedan
sw= 5 door wagon/hatch
(the bodystyle badges would be right behind the front fenders)
For old trims (mainstream)-
820 ss= 2 liter
820x ss= 2 liter AWD
828 ss= 2.8 liter
828x ss= 2.8 liter AWD
828 iisport ss= 2.8 liter fuel injected sport
for old trims (flagship)
K1900 cs= 1.9 liter
K1900x cs= 1.9 liter AWD
K2700 iisport cs= 2.7 liter fuel injected sport
For modern bodystyles (flagship)-
Ic= I coupe
Is= I convertible
I= I sedan
440= A class sedan
450= A class hatch
460e= GLA coupe electric
620= C class coupe
640= C class sedan
660= GLC coupe
840= E class sedan
850= E class wagon
860= GLE coupe
Kc= SLC coupe
I= S class sedan
X= GLS with G class offroad capability
the T in the 800 likely means "touring" referring to the fact that it's a wagon. so if there was a V8 sedan version of the 800, it would likely be called an 848. (unless 5 refers to seats rather than doors, in which case it would be an 858)
also, as far as the K series goes, the K likely stands for Kabriolet, and c stands for coupe, meaning the K-series is meant to be a convertible in normal trims and have hardtop variants, but since the devs haven't figured out the jbeam/sound mechanics for convertibles, they just have the hardtop variants.
I don't really pay attention to the 800 as much due to the lack of "customizable" configs or parts, but wasn't a shooting-brake one of the configs? I am not sure.
not a vanilla one, no.
Yea that's what I was thinking, I remembered rn that it was actually a mod. oops lol.
For the whole naming convention debate, couldn't the problem just be solved by renaming the 2400 to "2400i" and the 2400i to something like "2400ic"? It seems like the entire issue hinges on the name "2400" with it being the only model without an "i", so why not eliminate that model name entirely?
What does the "i" stand for? Who knows? But that seems like the most time-effective way to solve this issue.
You have a good point.
But, there is a 856 without the t, which may mean the t indeed stands for turbocharged as the 856 with no "t" is indeed using a NA motor
You mean the ttsports?
i was 99% sure the 856t was named just 856
Only 4-cyl gas/ttsport models are turbo
other than the TTsports, they all have a "t"
though it should also be mentioned that with the K-Series, turbo and N/A 6cyls are available as non-ttSport variants, meaning with it, the "t" does stand for turbocharged.
Yeah, weird how ETK apllied different nomeclature to 2 cars in the same time period.
Thers an issue, automatic, only kicks down when 100 percent rrottle is applied.
haha european car broken
In all seriousness i like the rally version of this, very fun
Its an brilliant car this, just found small issue with it. Luxurious, elegant, european, perfection.
how has this dude managed to get banned.
likely the power of being underage, ban signatures are kil for some reason so you may never know for certain.
