<strong>I`m confused as to what the difference is to the various trim levels were avaliable to the early 1998 156s.
what is standard fixture and what would be options?
The 156 i`m looking at has no a/c or alloy wheels but has Electric sunroof.

Instead of the current Veloce everthing was added as options called sports pack 1, 2 & 3 which added various combinations of leather, alloys, suspension & body mods
Hope that helps, I was looking to buy one at around that time so did a lot of research but took one visit to my nearest dealer & was treated like a piece of S*** so decided against it & brought a Vauxhall (sad I know), strangely they no longer have their franchise & by co-incidence the local Vauxhall dealer that serviced mine has opened up a Alfa dealership next door so I now at last have a Alfa
