DS230 is for K-1 as well? thought it's just for CR1/marriage. Is this consulate/embassy specific because I thought its just the 156 forms needed for K1

its slightly different here... we dont get an interview date until we have completed and returned all the forms and completed the medical, collected all required documents... and then returned form DS-2001 to say we are ready

i think it is needed for all K-1 but some embassies require part I and some require part I and part II. you would need to check that to be sure though

but what do i do with part II... do i throw it away

YES throw it away.

i think it is needed for all K-1 but some embassies require part I and some require part I and part II. you would need to check that to be sure though

Part 2 is stuff for spouse visas.

At the risk of thread jacking do I have to bring a copy of the initial I-129F to the interview?

NO you do not need it.
