Availability of ASR and ASD

A little info on the two from a 1991 article that provides good info. I have driven two cars with ASD (my 190E AMG and a 2.5-16) and can say that ASD is a great option to have and beneficial on snowy roads.

"ASD and ASR have been offered in Mercedes cars sold in Europe the last two years."
I think the cars available with ASD or ASR and when as mentioned in this article might be a little bit misleading.
Here's some other information I found on availability of ASR and ASD in Europe:

- ASD (presented at IAA 1985) was only offered for the I6 models from 1987 on.
- ASR I (presented at IAA 1985) was available only on the larger V8 models from 1987 on.
- Starting 1989 ASR II was available on all models
