Hmmm 156 Ride Height - Veloce and Turismo

Can anyone tell me how much the ride height differs on a Veloce compared to a Turismo or Lusso. i.e the measurement from centre of wheel to bottom of wheel arch.
The reason being I have just bought an 03 SW Turismo that appears to have been built to Veloce spec. Western Alfa in Edinburgh told me this was common on the last of the pre facelift 156s. It does seem to have all or most of the Veloce kit, I'm just wondered if it also has the lower suspension set up.

Originally Sportwagon Veloces were not lowered.
Although there are reports that the very late Sportwagon Veloces did also get the lower suspension.
