Re: What the "S" in 16v?
It's only to do with trim - no mechanical differences at all IIRC.
Not sure about the order but I think the 16v first came out as a cloverleaf with the sporty spotty seats, a bit like the Recaros in the P4 but not as good. At some point it then got proper Recaros, perhaps this was the S? As MarkgQ4 said all UK P4s were S's with Recaro's, not sure about other markets. Then there was just the 16V which I'm guessing had more normal seats?
If anyone has an old Parkers guide or similar it might shed some more light on it.
