Typical signs of a Graduate, although over the years, previous owners could have done some swaps, are:

vinyl roof instead of canvas
manual windows instead of power
plain steel wheels or phone dial looking hubcaps instead of 5 star wheels
black rear view mirrors instead of body matching
no air conditioning
graduate badging on the front fenders and rear spoiler
less sportier looking seats

Based on these, does the car seem more like a Graduate or Veloce?

Definitively a Graduate the only exception is it has A/C.

Problem with customs is that they just go by what the vin says and it says Veloce on most sites so I'm worried I'm screwed and will end up paying a lot of taxes.
That sucks!

Also, I need to make a couple corrections...
The 1985 is the earlier S3, so the mirrors are likely chrome and not plastic or body colored. Also, the sportier seats might have only started in 1986. A/C may have been an option.

Good luck!
