Letitroll98: Can you advise where one finds the definitions for all the codes on the RPO list you referenced above. I'd like to understand all the various codes, but can't seem to find this info. Regards: kenny

Okay, please correct me if I am wrong and I have read this entire thread.
The engine is the same in both cars but the Autobahn has a 3.71 final, V rated tires, and the higher speed limiting computer?
There is no speed limiter on the Autobahn pkg, except for physics. Otherwise you are perfectly correct. I just cut and pasted Dred98's web page www.howardm.net/dred98/autobahn.php in answer to someones question (and gave proper credit of course). As it was the second post in the thread I had no idea it would be a "sticky" and live on this long or I would have checked for accuracy.
Howard, or Dred98, has a great Aurora site at www.howardm.net/dred98/aurora.php and all members should check in to look at his well researched Aurora info, especially the "Under the Hood" section. He posts infrequently these days and we are all the poorer for it.

95,96,97,98,99 could all be autobahn equiped but the 2000+ did not come as such dred98s page has the details on how to figure it out but dont trust the label on the spare cover as it could be a replacement cover. instead check the factory label inside the driver door.

4.0L 97 autobahn 120k, air box gutted, resonator gone. custom grounding kit. I love this car!!!!!

I have a 99' too,,,and I just got an e-mail from westers ...they can do it...HERES A LINK TO MY THREAD WITH THE LINK AND INFO. "http://aurorah.proboards47.com/index.cgi?board=Zoom&action=display&thread=1203483512"
I am superised this club has not gotten some of the Oldsmobile/ Aurora engineers on broad this site yet. Roger M and Sam Winegarden come to mind.

While I knew what the Autobahn package was from reading my '95 sales brochure, I never knew an easy way to see if my car had it... until now. Nice surprise & just one more thing to like about the car. I had the rebuilt tranny installed a while back and I'm wondering if that might have changed my final drive ratio? Does any one know? I sure learn a lot from reading these threads. J
thanks to this thread for givin me the info that i needed to figuer out if my 97 is an autobahn or not .......... and come to find out IT IS !!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D thanks ACNA !!!!!!!!!!! now im that much more proud of my olds !!!!!!!
All you 1G owners worrying about whether or not your car is an autobahn. Yeesh.. Just buy a 2G, that way you won't have to worry.
well I'm not sure how everyone else feels about this but ummmmm IMO id rather have a very stylish curveacious body than a (and no offense second gens) a rounded body that just has no appeal and looks like almost anything else on the road. non autobahn aurora. :-)
