Re: Identifying Model Type
Down to your trim M8. Should be able to get details off of the Parkers web site... Lusso features velour trim, mahogany-effect console, wooden steering wheel, climate control. V6 adds alloy wheels. Selespeed transmission is F1-style clutchless manual transmission system. Q-System is four-speed auto with manual override. Option packs available until early 2000 included Lusso (on 1.8 only) and Sport (three levels, including wood or carbon fibre-look dash, sports suspension, 16-inch alloy wheels, Recaro sports seats or leather Momo seats). Leather upholstery an option. In June 2000, Lusso and Veloce were launched as models in their own right, replacing previous Lusso and Sport packs; base models became Turismo. Sportwagon estates arrived in mid-2000. GTA 3.2 V6 models (June '02) have GTA body styling, 17” alloys, leather seats, Winter pack, heated electric front seats. Revisions in June '02 included 2.0 JTS direct injection petrol engine, uprated 2.4 JTD engine, VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) safety system, curtain airbags, new interior, improved equipment including alloy wheels, Bose audio from 2.0 JTS upwards, new Veloce dual trim level with Momo leather trim.
Some mornings it barely seems worthwhile gnawing through the ropes.
