Ok, she has 17" spoked Alloys and and the Black Leather (not the same as Ti trim I don't think) but that's about all I could see, no sign of the pedals, kick plates, and obviously a sport badge not a Ti.
Thing is I can't see much, anywhere, detailing what Sport spec is actually supposed to be, other than 'leftovers'! Has anyone got a pointer, or specific evidence that says what the differences are, or is it just Veloce spec with leather and 17" alloys?
Ti spec... from Alfa UK is...
specially lowered sports suspension ...standard on Veloce
exclusive 17" alloy wheels ....16"usual on Veloce
a discreet ‘TI’ badge at the back...Wow!
distinctive black leather upholstery embossed with the Alfa Romeo logo...most Veloce's come with Momo leather ticked as an option, altho it may not be standard.
‘TI’ branding on aluminium sill plates and central console...again, Wow!
red lighting for the instrument panel and switchgear...standard on Veloce
mine has the red on black backlighting, altho this may have changed since mine was made.
Plus you should get a Momo leather steering wheel on the Veloce and a few bits of extra body kit (sill extensions etc).
Don't really see that you're getting that much over a standard Veloce really?
altho small print rider indicates I may sometimes be wrong
