How do you tell if you have sport suspension.

So I call my buddy up at the dealer and ask him to run the last 7 of the vin before I bought my touring. I wanted to see what it was equipped with. He says you have the sport package, ie: sport seats, 3 spoke wheel, sport suspension and 5 speed etc.
I was psyched as it was what I was looking for. When I went to pick up the car it had comfort seats, 16" wheels, 4 spoke wheel, but it was a 5 speed. I called him today and he confirmed it had the sport package.
Guess they made a mistake, is it possible to still have the sport suspension, how can I tell? I did manage to pick up a 3 spoke wheel and sport seats though.
TIA,
Kevin

yeah it does at least it has a 5 speed. As stated I do have coupe sport seats, a 3 spoke wheel,I have 18's and I will be getting a cup kit for it. I might have xenons as I get flashed all the time at night and when I put my brights on to show them the difference the honk at me...........lol. Are heated seats and cruise standard as I do have both of these?
