Bodhi, I know the system is not built by Alfa but I'm sure alfa fit them into their own cars. But you could be right about it being incorrect.
Really Zero Seven. That's exactly who I'm talking about, Smartalfa. Did you order your through them then? Their prices are pretty unbeatable right now and it would save me the Flight/Ferry trip and I don't want to comprimise on my Spec.
He is ringing around to see what he can do for me. You are right they don't usually like ordering cars with Connect as they cannot Garuntee delivery times, maybe they say this to play for time.
Cheers G, yep I know the factory shuts for the whole of August. So I have already added one month to me expected build time.
I will be working on the site this weekend, then I promise I will take it into work to get the intial release set up, as I will be hosting it on my works servers.
It will have initially the following features:
1. You will be able to upload your car pics yourself (automatic generation of thumbnails and resizing of pictures to fit my design) which saves any intervention from me.
2.You can add links to your sites yourself and update the link if your adress changes.
3.Send me any sound or video files for my Audio and Video section.
4.I wll be adding a 'Your Diary' Feature, this will alow you to keep a list of events good and bad about the experience of owning a 147 to share with other owners and prospective owners to give them a feel for 147 ownership.
I chatted to AO the other day and said I would never have a Forum as I think we would all agree we already have the best on the web right here.
I have some other ideas which I don't want to tell you about just yet. Just to keep the suspense up.
For a sneak peak at the design, this was just a style test and has since changed slightly, the idea is to keep it clean and light on size as it's mostly about sharing information. Go to http://www.chappy.contactbox.co.uk/alfa/
I have registered the Domain name 147experience.co.uk the idea being that I and everyone else shares their experiences. Clever eh!
