It could well be. I don't think CD ever stood for CD Player in Europe though. In fact, I'm pretty sure I recall my mum looking at a MkII Astra CD at one point, and I think that only had a radio/cassette.

The Poverty Plus spec meant you had a passenger door mirror and rear wiper! 1,2,3 Ooooooooohh! I saw a Mk2 Fester t'other day which must be the first one I've seen in a long time. Brought back happy memories
I remember hiring a Fiesta for a week when my Audi bit the dust. It was winter, and the first morning I had it, I spent a good five minutes or more looking for the heated rear window switch. I only twigged when I looked at the window and realised that it didn't have lines running across it.

As I recall, it didn't have a radio. In fact, I don't think it even had a space in the dash to fit one.
