You are correct about the A, B, And T.

I found this info on an Audi website. Pretty much the same. You people get the picture.

Hope this helps.

A: platform is the smallest platform.(Golf,Jetta Beetle)
B: is the Medium size platform.(Passat, Audi A4,S6)
T: must be for Truck/vans.
C: is the Large Platform.(Audi A6,S6,RS6)
D: is the Top range Platform.(Audi A8)

(Model Year) [Model] {Platform generation}
(2000-curr) [TT Coupe, TT Roadster] {A4}
(1973-1979) [Fox] {B1}
(1980-1987) [4000 sedan] {B2}

(1977-1983) [5000] {C2}
(1984-1991) [5000, 100, 200] {C3}
