so they are not the same spec as a standard ti?

looks lovely though
A few differences - see here : http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-159-brera-and-946-spider/143219-alfa-romeo-159-limited-edition.html#post2187402 . Also, they have body-coloured mirror covers rather than the Ti's brushed chrome offerings.

An idea of what's in the spec : http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-159-brera-and-946-spider/143219-alfa-romeo-159-limited-edition-2.html#post2204146 - although the jury is still out on whether the suspension is actually lowered as the gap between the tyre and the arch on the LE definitely looks wider than on my (or any other I've looked at) Ti. :confused:

It's not the full-fat colour-display double-DIN system that you get in the centre console of some 159s (like mine, :D - see below) but a simplified one that displays turn arrows in the multi-function display panel between the speedo and rev-counter so it isn't immediately obvious to the casual observer that it's got it. The Ti side-skirts aren't too boy-racerish or in your face (side view + front and rear sections of mine below) so again they're easy to overlook at first glance.

I've got the limited edition.
difference from the TI are;
Leather seats, but not sports seat.
Sat Nav, voice direction with arrows on dashboard display only (can't enter postcodes either) having said that it's always got me to my destination in the end.
Body coloured mirrors.
Graphite 19" rims, same style as TI but not silver.
and you can't fold the back seats down which.
And yep all LE's are 6 speed, clutch never been an issue for me

good luck
