This is only telling half the story and much of it is misleading it looks like it came out of one of those crappy car price books (Don't believe those prices either!), it's missing out the full interior face lift that occured late 02, which coincided with the JTS being introduced.
Is the 2003 car one with the 'big nose'??, ie a full face lift car or one of the intermediate face lift ones?.
On the mid face lift cars a Veloce could be specced with or without leather either with the leather sports seats or the Momo's, a Lusso always had Momo leather, Lusso had cruise control but the Veloce's got sports suspension and side skirts. Lusso's got a different wheel pattern as well, a smoother design with smaller holes, not the nice teledials which the veloce's got. All cars over 2.0 got the Bose sound system as standard.
When the 'big nosed' cars came the Bose became an optional extra, amongst other subtle but significant changes.
