D8 and D9 are Froggy terms for mk1 and mk2. Don't ask me why!

Not even that, they seem to be the parts diagram designations. If you say D8 or D9 in most dealers they'll give you a confused look.

D8 and D9 also appear on one of the dials on the instrument cluster (on my car, D9 is shown, in small letters, coloured shiny-black-on-matt-black-plastic, on the speedo dial).

If I was to hazard a guess at the D8 thing I'd go for the D representing the "4", i.e the size designator (at least until they ran out of numbers!), and the 8 representing the model number sequentially, bearing in mind that there have been facelifts of various platforms along the way, hence the 406 being both D8 & D9. Of course that applies logic, which seems to persistently escape french car makers so it might be total bolox.... Anyone know if the 407 is a D10?? :? :supafrisk:
