Alfa 147 Lusso ti query

Hi guys

I bought a 2006 147 lusso jtd 150bhp.

It's badged as ti
It has the ti alloys
It has the sport suspension/shocks or w/e

However, the interior is plain black leather and from what I can google it should be red stitched. I did however see a model listed in Parkers as the Lusso ti, but I'm doubtful.

So, do I have an actual ti or just a badged, lowered lusso?

Did the '06 Lusso come with the same ti alloys?

(I'm not that bothered about it, in the sense that I don't feel i was done by the dealer, but when I sell it I'd like to know what I would put up, also, I've a feeling the insurance company might hold out on a payment if it was modified rather than factory set)

I have a TI - the leather doesn't have red stitching.

One practical method of finding out if it's a Ti:

1. Unlock car.
2. Open drivers door.
3. Look at sticker on B pillar which will say something like 'Special Edition Ti'.
4. Close door, lock car, put on kettle and have a smug brew.

If sticker on B pillar isn't there (and it should be) then all the rest of the evidence (age, detail etc) suggests that yours is a genuine Ti. My Ti does not have red stitching on the leather either.

Thanks, I know it sounds silly. Its just that I read a thread here about guys deciding whether or not to buy a ti, or just get a bog lusso and lower it, then buy a badge. Then I got paranoid

My Ti hasn't got the red stiching either, and it IS a Limited Edition version. In fact I don't think any of them did, as all the Ti's came as a "complete " package, and you couldn't add or take anything away from them, I wanted to add a BOSE System, when I ordered it, but wasn't allowed to.........

Hope that helps.......
